    god shed loads of stuff, I'm really quite fussy

    I can only eat cheese if it's melted, 'raw' cheese makes me sick
    Tomatoes, I HATE them in sandwiches, except BLT which is different for some unknown reason
    Sushi.... no way
    Deep fried chips, ewwwgh too greasy and soggy, mccains home fries all the way

    There's loads of stuff I used to detest but as I've got older I've realised it's actually just my mum's appauling cooking that put me off. She used to do this thing called creamed spinach, basically she's boil the spinach for about half an hr so it's just this soggy mess, attempt to drain it and fail miserably then mix some cream with it and serve it like that, was absolutely vile and put me off spinach. Then I got served some when I first went for dinner at my ex's parents, didn't want to be rude to ate it and was amazed it's actually quite nice. Same with sprouts too and loads of other stuff. But Ian trained as a chef so thankfully now I get loads of yummy food, unless he makes me cook :rolleyes:

    But is cheesy peas not just Matar Paneer ?? which is really quite yummy and one of my favourite Indian side dishes.

    For me it would be:
    Snails (escargot - dress in whatever fancy name you wish) :sick:

    Offal :sick:

    Yep - love tomatoes in a salad, but on a sandwich or in chunks on a pizza :sick: even BLT's they get picked out.

    Boiled carrots - especialy the mini ones as whole :sick:
    Fresh carrot - yummy :)

    And on the topic of eyeballs...ugh. Some people here consider eyeballs as a delicacy. Not me!

    Excuse me, can we just go back to where someone said they ate a giant moth....I think we have a winner.

    Also like to send up a big hurl for marrow, aubergenes(sp), mushrooms AGAIN, call it what you like - it's nasty, my mothers egg & mushroom cream (can of mushroom soup, served in a cup, with a hard boiled egg sliced in the bottom and some grated cheese) YUCK - I remember her chasing me all over the house with that trying to make me eat it with a spoon and me crying because there was NO WAY IN THE WORLD that I was eating it.

    I'd rather eat my mothers egg & mushroom cream then a giant moth though. I think.

    For me:

    Anything griselly/flabby (bacon has to be cremated)
    Any fish that tastes of...well...fish. Exception being fish 'n' chip shop fish.
    Pork - tastes like pigs strangely enough.
    Offal with the exception of decent smooth pate.
    Blue cheese (with the exception of cooked eg. stilton soup) or goat's cheese.

    I'll add to this most likely. I'm really very food phobic for such a fatty.

    I'd eat anything that is safe basically, well I woudln't eat human brains (yes there was a guy who did this, now in prison). I wouldn't eat any meaty things raw, and I also wouldn't eat fat. You could ask me to eat some food, and even if I find it revolting i'll still eat it, to prove a point that it's edible.

    This topic is old but I had to reply! It's such a good topic.


    I eat many of the things listed here a lot haha. :( Tomato + avocado sandwiches are divine; mushrooms are amazing- earthy, meaty, and aromatic; liver is good; raw or cooked fish and also fish eggs are good; pickled things are actually one of the first forms of preserved foods and are also delicious; Marmite isn't bad- a bit bitter, but it has a complex flavor; et cetera on the weird foods!

    I would eat many things, I'm not afraid of odd foods. I have an iron stomach, it's my Polish side. I've eaten some dumb things before too hahaha. Wild mushrooms, wild Queen Anne's Lace root, dandelion, etc. My epicurean curiousity will get me into trouble some day.

    I do refuse to eat some things. I get nauseous at the smell of canteloupe, and even though I've tried before, I can't seem to enjoy octopus. Crayfish are too weird looking (though their cousin lobster is delicious). Philadelphia sushi rolls are vile.

    I'd eat most organs besides perhaps the eyes. Eyes in food are just weird.

    Some foods that some people find gross but I LOVE:

    escargot, I used to like it when I was small, now I'll eat it but only if I had to.
    sushi, YUMMMM! :drool: :drool: :drool: :drool: I know that this is a fish site, but I love fish, both cooked and alive!
    I have just read that some people consider olives and oyster bad, but I love green olives and fresh oysters!
    I know most people like tacos, but my family hates them and I'm the only one to stop by at Taco Bell!
    Hmmmmmmmmmmm...
    Spinach, it's not one of my faves but I guess it is good...
    Mushrooms, these and carrots are my favourite foods in the veggie category. But I tasted a raw button mushroom for Thanksgiving and I almost threw up :sick:
    octopus, the tentacles are my faveourite parts :D I know I'm gonna make a lot of people sick saying that :D

    That's probably not all, but I can't think of all of them now...

    My hated foods:

    any kind of stomachs,
    pig ears, nose, feet,
    anything with a lot of fat on it I can almost barf thinking about that white sticky stuff sticking on it...
    mushy carrots,
    again, raw mushrooms,
    frogs! My dad actually ate one!
    Spiders, my brother told me about a show where this guy cooked a tarantula and it turned pink and bubbly :sick:
    black olives,
    icing! It just makes me sick at the thought of it! :sick:
    Chocolate cake! WAY too sweet for me!
    dark chocolate, its just so bitter :sick:

    I'm not sure if that's all, but I think so...

    First on the list would be peas, just the mere smell is enough to make me hurl. After that I'd have to say oranges (the peel and pith gives me really bad headaches, yet I can drink orange juice fine), eggplant, asparagus, squash, cooked mushrooms, (raw are ok but I don't like them cooked) tripe and marrow. I haven't tried eggplant or asparagus but think they'd be bloody awful to be honest. I eat pretty much anything else (food-wise, the obvious ones don't really need a mention :lol: ) and am willing to try anything at least once (even the aforementioned eggplant and asparagus, although I doubt I'd like them).

    poop

    I have eaten live crickets before though, they have no taste, but their exoskeleton gets stuck in the back of your throat, and is really chewy.

    Edit- Marshall.., they actuallly had to eat that on fear factor before!

    I remember eating that cricket, we did that at my house.

    I won't eat peanut butter, I have a bad reaction to it.
