Two proteins that I have never enjoyed are liver and octopus/squid.

I try a bit of someones probably once a year (maybe a bit less) - but have found it consistantly horrible.

I'll keep trying every once in a while though - maybe someone prepares it in a a way that I like.


The list of foods that I'm not interested in, or don't add anything for me is quite a bit longer, but inclused most mushrooms, artichokes, bitter leafy greens, many tropical fruits...



If you're up for exploring octopus/squid options yourself, there are some great treatments being presented in in the current Cook-Off 62: Squid, Calamari and Octopus.

Dried fruit leaves me cold, I don't like the texture, and the flavour completely loses the freshness that I enjoy about fruit.

Licorice and strong Aniseed flavours do nothing for me, and linger on the palate, ruining it for a length of time.

I will also never understand the love for peppers (that's capsicum to us Aussies).

Still, I can eat pretty much anything, and if these were on the plate I'd eat them, you just wouldn't catch me putting them there if the dish was for me.
