I can't really think of much apart from squeazy cheese from a tube. The thought of it makes me want to yack.
so you won't try it.
loads really i like what i like
They are one of my favourite things. SO vinegary and tart, and I love the texture- the soft sweet flesh and the bite of the skin. I'm making myself feel quite flustered thinking about rollmops. PO: officially turned on by pickled herring.
Food of the (Norse) Gods
it's great stuff
herring VERY lightly fried (with a little breadcrumb & flour if you like) in butter on each side then leave overnight in distilled vinegar with onion, whole peppercorns & sliced carrots
Serve with fresh dill
Its bloody marvellous
senap sill with egg & boiled new potatoes on midsummer's day is absolutely compulsory here - everything covered in dill and all washed down with schnapps
It doesn't pop up in nearly enough dishes. I LOVE IT.
someone was telling me the other day about a Scandi thing that's basically layered creamy potatoes, and very sharp tangy fish. I NEED TO REMEMBER WHAT THIS IS
it's a kind of anchovy gratin
not such a big fan of anchovies myself so it's a bit hit and miss but if someone does a good one it can be pretty great
why is it even a food?!
get yourself a moussaka
That's how i imagine it.
but a bit richer I guess
I'd rather eat the most disgusting offal than a neat tomato.
I can't really describe it. It doesn't have a strong flavour. Its got a nice texture that isn't really like anything else.
as it doesn't have the fresh slipperyness of cucumber but hay ho
I just went with tomato because of the way they cook when they're sliced, fleshy on the outside but softer inside:
EAT ONE and find out?
I can understand not eating eels, maggoty cheese etc- I wouldn't either. But not eating fairly standard foodstuffs because you're not familiar with them is silly.
I can see how people wouldn't like aubergine.
I don't think I've ever tried tripe because I once saw a friend try it and vom everywhere
never again, little black rubbery turds. http://www.google.co.uk/imgres?um=1&hl=en&safe=off&tbo=d&biw=977&bih=875&tbm=isch&tbnid=0RysMQdYh0T8MM:&imgrefurl=http://theimportanceofsalt.com/2008/11/30/weird-food-sea-snails/&docid=jRIl1HEWxJwcTM&imgurl=http://theimportanceofsalt.files.wordpress.com/2008/11/dscn1196.jpg&w=3072&h=2304&ei=-IXtUIDpO-iJ0AWHxYCwBQ&zoom=1&iact=rc&dur=270&sig=111072633083678723845&page=1&tbnh=143&tbnw=158&start=0&ndsp=22&ved=1t:429,r:0,s:0,i:85&tx=87&ty=40
I probably would.
p.s. if you're gonna come back on DiS, remember how to link properly....:D
good to see nobody's wasted any time fixing the site or anything dull like that though.
...pretty rank to be fair.
My mum stealth-fed me them in france when I was too young to know what I was eating.
There are foods I don't like, but I know that from trying them. Fussy eaters are rubbish.
(allergies and eating disorders obviously very much excused)
Don't give them excuses
No such thing as a nut allergy, MTFU
but she's not convinced.
Bull shit. We went for a curry once and it turns out his had nuts in and he jsut went a bit red and coughed and didn't even start to choke. Just say you don't like nuts you fucking liar. I like to bring peanut M&Ms and Snickers bars in and tell him I'm only interested in snacks that could potentially kill him
I'm just saying that I'm not going out of my way to try a hunk of eel.
it's grilled in a teriyakish sauce, it's totally far from gross. not slimy or anything like that.
I'm going to nobu on saturday night and i'm going to stuff my face with eel.
but I probably wouldn't go in for the hardcore stuff like fish eyeballs and pig brains
That episode of the Simpsons probably destroyed the Fugu market
...tastes of surprisingly fuck all.
where they had an english family eat one of those and a japanese family eat some stilton? i miss banzai.
I mean, it's horrible, but it's worth a bite just to say you have.
Or rather, becoming a bit particular about it. At bookclub last night, we had some food plattters and a cheeseboard, AND THE CHEESE CONSISTED OF A MASSIVE HUNK OF STILTON AND A SLIVER OF SOMETHING THAT MIGHT HAVE BEEN PARMESAN, MIGHT HAVE BEEN STRONG CRUMBKLY PALE CHEDDAR. iT WAS NICE. oh no< i've just looked up at my screen and see the capsmess. sorry, can'tr be arsed changing it. Anyway, I got lumbered with the blue and I was thnking- I only really like sticky blue cheeses now (like dolcelatte, mmmm.) The crumbly ones taste a bit bitter. I've also gone off goats cheese. Yeah, fuck you, goats cheese.
It was the much feted food of the 90s and o0s and I'm bloody downright sick of it. It can FUCK OFF, right?
NOT eating that
"Because the larvae in the cheese can launch themselves for distances up to 15 centimetres (6 in) when disturbed, diners hold their hands above the sandwich to prevent the maggots from leaping. Those who do not wish to eat live maggots place the cheese in a sealed paper bag. The maggots, starved for oxygen, writhe and jump in the bag, creating a "pitter-patter" sound. When the sounds subside, the maggots are dead and the cheese can be eaten."
no worms thanks. Not even with tequila. (although I did eat sand eels last year. Wouldn't really recommend.)
Have an aunt that tried to sneakily put in sandwich she made me once...I nearly gagged. I'm more forgiving to the artisan variety of mayo with a bit of colour and a few extra ingredients thrown in. Otherwise not too fussed and will try pretty much anything.
But mundane stuff:
I tried lobster last year and it was disgusting. It just tasted like warmed up rubber. So I had to basically get a can opener out to open something up that tasted like warm rubber.
Tuna mayo? Never tried it?
My dad said the same thing about Lobster. I had it a few weeks ago and it was amazing. I had it steamed with lemon and garlic butter.
So good (what does ITT mean?)
I always thought that I'd never eat fish at all until a couple of years ago, when I tried some cod.
Since then I've tried white bait, and bream. Tuna would be a step too far though.
sure it wasn't squid?
gloopy horrible shite
I make a killer leek & potato soup
it's great and dead simple too
i had to eat some eyes when i auditioned for fear factor UK
i have to say i'd probably eat anything once
i was sat at a street food stall thing in penang and whatever guide i had out in front of me said "try the beef torpedo sup" and being really hungry i didn't actually process what the "torpedo" bit meant.
it wasn't until i got back and thought to google it.
IT'S INSECTS THAT LIVE UNDER THE SEA
ENJOY YOUR WEE BEASTIES
and carrying on the Scandinavian theme, that decomposing fish they leave in a can for 500 years or sumfink.
but surströmming can fuck right off
Having said that, "The Kiviaks" would be a bloody great name for a band
or most fish pies for that matter. Sound wonderful, but you're putting fish. And prawns. In a cheese sauce. It's like making the Incredible Hulk wear a pink thong, or something.
