Now that I can afford it, I've recently decided to explore the gourmet, haute cuisine, "foodie" world. Can anyone recommend gourmet foods I might like to try, other than the ones I've already started to delve into, namely:

alcoholic beverages (such as beer, single malt scotch whiskies and wine)
caviar
cheese
chocolate
coffee
cooking oils and fats (including olive oil)
escargot
fois gras
fungus (such as mushrooms and truffles, the latter being a form of fungus, but not a mushroom)
meat (including fish and shellfish, pork and Wagyu beef)
vinegar (including real balsamic vinegar and many others)

I'm looking for "generally accepted" gourmet foods, not exotic, crazy things, and I don't care for "sweetbreads" and other offal.

Thanks for any help anyone can provide.
