Come on ... give it a chance!
There are many adventures in life that come with some risk. Sky diving, zip lining, travel to some foreign countries and race car driving come to mind. Yet, there is one adventure that is not only risk free, but ultimately can be a huge eye opener, and that is food. Short of eating a poisonous mushroom or Japanese Fugu (the puffer fish, which only a few sushi chefs in the world are licensed to prepare because it is highly toxic and potentially fatal if incorrectly prepared), eating food has no risk. The worst thing that could happen is that you don’t like something, but the potential reward of discovering something new and delicious to eat far outweighs that risk.
