I wasn't! Although I am not a foodie, I have been watching Food Network somewhat religiously the past couple of years in an attempt to educate myself past, or at least up to, some of the food taste/texture issues I have that stem from my Aspergers. I will never be one of those people who can eat anything -- too many allergies of various scopes for that, plus food issues that take more energy to combat than I am willing to spend -- but my scope has been slowly expanding and I have been able to successfully try and enjoy foods I never could before.
Since I've never had sea urchin, that was an honest question. From what I understand, the urchin has a rich salt and umami flavor, and the maple syrup sweetness and mild taste might be a really good contrast for that.
