food bucket list – fresh start

Bucket lists. I love them. But I haven’t really been checking many things off these past few years. Gosh, can you believe that it’s been almost a year since I did a food bucket list post? Remember that time, way back when, when I told you about having bone marrow and beef cheeks for the first time? I was really excited about that. And it was really delicious.

Food adventures really took a back burner in my world. But now they’re back! And I’m back! This means several things. Not only does it mean a revived interest food experiences, but also: shorter hair, writing more, and traveling! Hopefully a few of these things are to your benefit, my dears. Although I’ve just been sticking with pen-to-paper journaling lately, I’m sure my adventures will slowly begin to make an appearance on the blog.

To start things off, this weekend I decided to dive right into new culinary experiences. I had a gift certificate for Rare Grill House and a lovely friend to join me for a Friday Night Feast. This restaurant is perfect for those looking to try something new. They source fantastic local ingredients and do a lot of nose-to-tail cooking. Their menu featured two specials with foods that have been on my bucket list: frog legs and beef heart.

The frog legs were delicious! They were coated in buttermilk and a light flour mixture and served with a nice dip. Super moist, meaty, and not-so-much like chicken…?

The beef heart was also fantastic. It had a jalapeno glaze, so I was anticipating a little bit of a kick, but unfortunately the heat got lost on the grill. The dish was still amazing. The meat was tender, and flavourful. And the seasonal veg at Rare never disappoints! I would definitely eat beef heart again and again if given the opportunity!

Do you have any suggestions for unique foods that should make their way onto my bucket list?

Eat, drink, and be merry, my friends.
