There aren't many folks out there who think that our food choices should be based on dares. At least, I hope there aren't many. Yes, you have to be brave sometimes to find delicious new foods. I admit to having to summon up some courage to try sushi, but I'm glad I did.
But at the same time, it wasn't exactly a challenge. Sushi has been eaten for countless generations — it's time-tested. Some of the stuff that has come up more recently should give us more pause.
