Prince William, Duchess Kate are fearless foodies, see the pics

As if we needed more reasons to love Prince William and Duchess Kate, the royal duo just proved to us that they're fearless foodies by eating an adventurous (ahem, phallic) food that even makes some seasoned food lovers squeamish.

Yesterday, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge continued their tour of Canada with a trip to the 'Taste of British Columbia' food festival to sample signature dishes from some of the regions best chefs, including geoduck.

Geoduck is a giant, burrowing clam with a long body that resembles, well, um. You know.

When William saw the geoduck for the first time, he very tactfully said, "Presentationally they are quite challenging," according to Daily Mail.

Then, Japanese chef Hidekazu Tojo offered Will and Kate a taste: thinly sliced sashimi-style geoduck served with a miso mustard sauce.

Without batting an eye, the royal duo downed the dish. "There is a slightly firmer texture to this," said Kate. "It's really unusual. I've never seen it before. It's so fresh from the sea."

They also tasted a coconut vegetable curry with basmati rice and a wine-marinated lamb "popsicle" by chef Vikram Vij. "This is amazing," William said. "It's the right level of spice for me. I'm very glad you did not surprise us with a vindaloo. I can't manage that — it's too much for me." Kate probably knew he'd say that since when she asked if she likes to cook, Kate said "Yes, especially curries."

The royal couple also sampled local spirits, a Laird of Fintry single malt whisky for William ("Delicious. You can tell the Scottish element — there's a peatiness to it") and cassis liqueur for Kate that she said is "like sloe gin." Here at TODAY FOOD, we're super impressed and can't wait to see what other bizarre foods the royal couple take on next.
