On a quest..
to eat every living creature on one leg or more,
or no legs at all

When I was born, I decided that I wanted to eat many different things before I die.

I have created this web site to record all the unusual creatures I have eaten so far in my life, and to share these statistics with you.

If you have any suggestion for something that I can eat, why don't you let me know?

Also have a look at my wish list.

About me

Shortly after I was born (around 30 years ago now), my parents decided to call me Maritz Binedell, and this is what I have been called ever since.

I currently live in Shenzhen, China. Fly there on Google Earth.

When I am not working as a software developer for this Irish company, I can be found wandering through the alleys after dark, hunting around for some exotic titbit from the Maritz Binedell stewing pots and barbeque fires of the night's street vendors.

Bon appétit!

Maritz Binedell
