Brains. I'm no zombie.

Don't like testicles either.

These are the only two I've been offered that I have quite simply refused to eat. In the countryside people usually eat every part of the animal. Although a country-boy myself, I have my limits.

I cannot stand it; Brussels sprouts, broccoli, cauliflower and so on are not for me. I have however tried Kimchi, which was OK.

Whenever I'm invited to dinner at a friend's house and they ask me if there's anything I don't eat, my stock answer is always "fish and offal"...other than that I'm good to go. Although there are some vegetables that I'm not too keen on...I can't eat cauliflower no matter how it's cooked, and don't get me started on brussel sprouts!

I am of course talking about stuff that would generally be served on a standard menu though. I think if I were to be offered such things as monkey brains, sheep's eyes or kangaroo testicles I think I might just make my excuses and leave. Not really likely to happen in the home counties of England though!

This past week was our week in my Classical European Cuisine class where we focused cooking French foods using offal parts. I know how to cook duck livers and veal kidneys, but I know I cannot stand eating it!!!   

The journey of life is not based on the accomplishments, but the experience.

I put liver, kidneys and octopus in the same category; it is food I can eat, but I really won't enjoy it. It's somewhere north of terrible, but not far.

This is food essentially "on notice", since I might actually learn to like it in the future - but there's just something about it that makes me feel icky.

Seriously though, pig brains and sheep testicles are eaten by some people in my countriside. Oh I want to add eyes. I don't eat eyes. Tried it once, and decided this was not for me.

(yes we eat all parts of the animal in Spain!)

Food? Refuse? Eat?

Those words don't go together.

I'll try anything once.

Though I do shy away from liver. Don't like the texture. But, if it's served, I'll eat it.

Bizarre foods is one of my favorite shows, he's a great host! He literally eats everything that is served to him! Though IIRC, he doesn't drink alcohol right? I'm surprised he maintains his weight (IK he's a little bit on the heavy side) ... but considering the amount of food he eats! and also that Man V. Food guy. I'm a fan of both. Unlike that foul-mouthed Anthony Bourdain. I'm also a fan of Samantha Brown.  

It's a cultural thing.

There is one item I refuse to eat. Actually I was in a restaurant one time where the table next to me ordered this item and I got up and walked out.

There it was, a beautiful evening in Vietnam. My friends and I had settled down at our table in the restaurant and were excited for some good food and good company. At the table next to us I heard a slight commotion as the dinner guests were choosing their particular meat for their dinner. My phobia/fear is snakes. And when the cook/waiter held up 3 or 4 live snakes for the dinner guests to choose which one they wanted all I could do was exit that restaurant as fast as I could. I can't remember what I ended up eating that night hehehehe.

Sour Cream. There's just something foul about it. Also, boiled or fried eggs...I can not stand the smell. I enjoy omelettes however with diced ham and a bit of cheese. I recently became a fan of asparagus...I have that as a side dish when I make salmon. And I believe I had brussels sprouts at Emeril's restaurant or somewhere similar, and they were great; I'm a fan now.

I'll try anything once unless it's ultra-exotic like brains or testicles.

And I do agree, Andrew Zimmern is a champ. Man V Food is amazing in a terrifying way...I just saw an episode where he drank 150(!) ounces of milkshake in under 30 minutes. He must go to the gym a lot between episodes!

So we beat on against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.

Brussel sprouts and asparagus. Seems to be a fad here in YVR at the moment in many of the trendy sports bar kinda places to serve a steak with 'fresh seasonal vegetables'. Always turns out to be asparagus - way to ruin a meal...

1. Celery. Can't stand the smell or the taste. The only time I'll have celery is if it's been slow cooked to a mush in a stew or a soup, and must be chopped very, very finely.

2. Offal - all except for beef tripe, which is one of the Cantonese dim sum dishes.

3. Snails - never tried it, but the thought of it disgusts me

4. Anything still alive, or anything raw except for oysters, salmon or tuna.

5. Grapefruit. Doctor's orders, as it interferes with Tacrolimus.

6. Bitter melon. Quite common in Chinese cuisine, but I can't stand it.

7. Chilli. I can't stand anything spicy.

Healthy food. Anything that is low this no that, reduced so and so. I am militantly against eating healthy foo, and the health craze because with the exception of some foreign/foreign style dishes 99% of food that is "healthy" tends to taste like steamed cardboard. So basically a lot of veggies, and anything low sodium i avoid. Kinda sucks but for me healthy and tasty are two mutually exclusive terms for food.
