Someone's having a laugh......which food

Recommended Posts

Holy Oats, are you kidding? My daughter would have gone hungry at school during the last half of third grade if it wasn't for baby corn! She wouldn't eat anything that we packed for lunch, if there was no baby corn accompaniment.

You're right; expensive bottled water is certainly the best complement to any pastry course. :raz:

I am permanently sober, and I am at present consuming a dish of mixed pickles, home made by me, with 4 baby corn ears in the mix.

I often add them to vegetable salads, and people always seem to eat them first. Come to think of it, when I used to do catering and had baby corn in the salad buffet setup, they were one of the items that needed replenshing often.

However if you don't like them that just means there is more for those of us who do.

Baby corn.

The true abomination on mankind.

I dunno....are you eating them out of a can? Canned stuff is always disgusting...fresh is better.

My vote is for brussel sprouts. They are just WRONG! Bitter pgymy cabbages. Or... in the words of my then-8-year-old sister..... "They taste like fart." :sad:

Finally somebody who knows that brussel sprouts are truly evil! I cannot even stand the smell of them cooking.

My 8 year old would vehemently disagree with you. He loves artichokes.

My contribution to this thread. shirataki (konnyaku) noodles, especially after seeing my sister floss her nostrils with them. :blink::wacko:

Baby corn--I've always thought it was so strange how you could eat the cob. But I still love it, and it has its place in some Chinese dishes.

Liver.

(Is there a barfing emoticon?)

:shock:

Ah the complexities of the palate and taste !!!

I love liver, calves liver to be precise, cooked rare with a shallot marmalade.

Food of the gods. :smile:

Here's another horror show though.......... horseradish.

For me it induces intant projectile vomiting. :unsure:

Horseradish and raw steak, yum! Liver, yum!

Now, fish or lamb eyeballs, not so edible to me, I'm sorry. Jello, no thank you. I suppose it is texture that creeps me out, but I adore a decent aspic, if coating a fish thinly, or crushed at the base of the plate.

Mike, try keeping a Microplane in the shower so those baby corns don't grow on you.

Hmmm, escargot is one of my favorite things, it's the chewy texture for me.

Oops, forgot to include the food I wouldn't want to see around.

Lutefisk.

Tried it a couple times...no good...even with lots and lots of melted butter on it. For me I believe it is the smell that turns me off.

Margarine. Solidified oils with artificial color and flavor spread on bread. Abomination.
