Thanks for participating in this forum. I'm married to an Irishman who has discovered his palate after years of eating 'boring' food. In the bio thread, Jason writes that your move to Shropshire was daring, implying that the eaters in Shropshire might not have been "up to" appreciating your talents. I'm wondering if you think some people have un-tested tastebuds that just need to be awakened or if some people just like really boring food.

The difficulty is not that they like it boring but that they are frightened by food. For instance I prefer my lamb underdone but if I'm visiting auntie and get it well done then I'll eat up like a good boy even if I don't enjoy it so much. Most of your punters who want it very well done would rather walk on hot coals that eat it with blood flowing.
Tell Jason that my other choice of locale to set up shop was Galway but I couldn't afford the property prices. Even less people there I'd have thought
