Have not tried Inuit food, and that may be a bridge too far, but that's a very exotic exception.
I've been a picky eater all my life. So was my father and other family members, some distant ones that grew up far apart from me. And so are my children. I think it's genetic. I also think that I have expanded the range of foods and flavors but there are limitations to how much.
I'm also sure that if I was starving I would bring myself to what's available, but short of that, no cucumbers for me either.
