Iceland's president forced to clarify views on pineapple pizza ban

quote:
Last week, answering questions from pupils at a high school in Akureyri, Guðni Th. Jóhannesson said his favourite football team was Manchester United and he was “fundamentally opposed” to pineapple on pizzas.

The president then went further, saying that if he could, he would ban the tropical fruit as a pizza topping.

What topping would you ban from a foodstuff? Or what arguments do you have about toppings/seasonings?

Chicken salt (salt with chicken extracts, or flavours at the least) on [hot] chips here seems to be the loudest argument people seem to have here: either hated or loved. I may lose friends but I quite like it.

Any of the cheese flavoured snacks made from petroleum based products. Does the world really need to be feeding kids this stuff? To me its like the fake lentils made from plastic on sale in China. [Disappointed]

Onion. In any form, including shallots and spring onion (scallions in the US, I think). I'd ban the lot because my system can't cope with them.

Yeah, sweet and savoury together generally. It's either the pudding or it's not. If it is, it's sweet. If it isn't, it isn't. It's not hard.

So this covers pineapple on pizza, apple sauce and those various red abominations people put on poultry.

It's why I don't buy coleslaw at Morrisons because the idiots put sugar in it and as a result it tastes terrible.

I can just about cope with dried apricots in tagines but they'd be better without them, IMNAAHO.

Amen! And if it's put on or in something, removing it does no good because the other foods will have absorbed the taste. I hate the taste of onion when I manage to swallow some -- and continue to hate the taste of it for about 24 hours since it's the taste that will not go away.

Cinnamon. In north America it is obligatory to add cinnamon to all pies and baked goods, and there are no exemptions; not even a note from your mother. The only use I have for cinnamon is in carefully calibrated small additions to curries, where the effect can be quite sublime in conjunction with all the other spices, but not in pies!

No, no, no! Brownies should never be served warm. Also, no hot fudge on my sundae, please -- just cold chocolate syrup.

And also, no warm chicken, shrimp*, salmon, whatever on my Caesar salad. Refrigerate them first.

*Sorry, Miss Amanda. I love shrimp -- at the proper temperature for the dish it's in.

Keep your peas out of my carbonara.

I actually like peas. But when I order carbonara, I've announced that I have gone all in on satisfying my tastebuds at the expense of my personal health and nutrition needs. So spare me your nod to healthy eating, and just give me the cream, cheese, eggs, cured pork, and white pasta that I desire.

I am, more or less, an autoalliumator. They go in everything. Mashed potatoes are so much better with a bit of onion. My favourite salad is a spicy bean salad with onions, garlic, cumin, and several different kinds of bean.

(Although I'll follow Karl and make a sharp distinction between food and pudding. No onions in desserts, thank you.)

I'll happily ban mustard, though.

But most of all, I'd ban the practice of people describing something as "a ham sandwich" when it's really ham-and-pickle or ham-and-mustard or something.

Go anywhere where sandwiches have been provided for lunch, and you'll be offered a choice between beef and turkey, say (I'm not going to choose the veggie one). And for me, that's not the relevant information.

Beef-and-what? Turkey-and-what? Which sandwich contains a flavour I dislike? Knowing what meat is in it doesn't help me.

Coriander/ Cilantro
It is NOT a Christian plant, though from having tasted it convinced me there is indeed a Devil and the Devil is a very nasty chef. So it did strengthen my faith in a back-handed, disgusted way to know it exists.

I believe coriander is technically the seeds and cilantro the leaves. But it doesn't matter. If I go to hell I will be force-fed cilantro-topped yoghurt. It mustn't go in nor on anything. Ever.

Research leads me to believe that some of us taste cilantro as unspeakably ghastly vile - soapy and rotten meat combined with the sensation of metal contacting a tooth filling - far beyond regular food preferences. Experience tells me that those who don't have the genetics to taste this vile aspect have no idea how truly awful it is, and how angry we get about it.

My Hell Diet of cilantro-topped yoghurt leads me to yoghurt, which besides upsetting my dairy-disliking tummy, has a nasty glairigeous twang which no amount of disguising can disguise. My Heaven Diet is anything else.

We must learn to live in harmony with nature. If we don't cease believing we can master and dominate it, life on Earth may be destroyed.

Hops (as in the beer ingredient) are the same way. I went to a beer tasting lead by a scientist from the local museum who specializes in taste, and she had everyone taste a strip of paper that was treated with the offending oil from the hop plant. The true hope heads tasted nothing, folks in the middle (like me) tasted something bordering on unpleasant, and the third group immediately reached for the tic tac that was included in the bag with the tasting strip to clean out the taste of Dawn dish-washing soap from their mouths.

Coriander.... Was sent down by a gracious God to those whom s/he loves, and wished to enjoy even more the spiced gastronomical treasures and pleasures of India. I am not sure what s/he wishes upon the others. Next time I am enjoying yogurt with cucumber,a little cumin and some fresh coriander, I shall pray that No Prophet's heart may be turned instead of his stomach.

Not a fan of pineapple on pizza, either (or anywhere else)--though I feel no need to keep other people from eating it.

I have to avoid calamari--tastebuds and stomach don't agree about it.

*Sharp* cheddar. Though I don't think I've had it on *hot* apple pie.

Custard? Is this custard that you can eat separately for dessert? Or something else?

Thx.

Thanks, LC. If that's related to our kind of custard, then it looks like it's poured hot, before it sets up. I don't think I've ever heard of a custard sauce here. But someone might well experiment at home.

ETA: if I were going to pour hot custard over a dessert, I'd probably use an unfrosted cake.

The "normal" way to make custard is to buy a tin of Bird's custard powder, and mix custard powder with boiling milk and a little sugar.

Custard powder is basically cornstarch, vanilla flavouring and annatto for colour.

"Real" custard is made with eggs, and is more or less what the French call "creme anglaise".

(And it's not only poured hot, it's eaten hot. At home, one would bring a jug of (hot) custard to the table, and each person pours some onto his pudding. Custard is de rigeur with spotted dick and similar stodgy puddings as well as with pies.)

Well I like everything mentioned here from cole slaw with a bit of sugar in its mayo to turkey with cranberry sauce on the edge. Liking everything is one of my problems with food.

However, I do think you chocolate maniacs -- and you know who you are-- have gone a bit far at times. Chocolate sauce really doesn't belong on everything. It certainly doesn't belong on cheesecake and chocolate chips in pancakes just fight with the maple syrup and if you're thinking of leaving the maple syrup off then why even have pancakes?

THIS!

Pancakes and maple syrup also benefit muchly from a scoop of Mascarpone. We recently discovered empirically that UnclePete does not benefit from the presence of Mascarpone in his food - isn't that sad? It means I shall have to finish the tub all on my own.

[Roll Eyes]

I agree wholeheartedly about fruit in savoury dishes - in certain styles of Indian food, thankfully not too popular round here, it is common to add raisins or whatever or even, in some meals, pineapple curry! Give me more Bitter Gourd [Bitter Melon and a million other names] and forget the fruit stuff - except for pickles - Mango Pickle, Lime Pickle, etc. are okay and carry the WW seal of approval although my real pickle passion is Garlic Pickle.

YUM!

I'd ban mushrooms in anything. Becauase I'm allergic to them. And oranges for the same reason. So many things I like have sneaky orange in them.

Where I grew up (east coast USA, NYC area) anchovies were common on pizza. I moved away and miss the anchovies.

Have you not thought of carrying around a stash of anchovies for these occasions?

Coriander/ Cilantro
It is NOT a Christian plant, though from having tasted it convinced me there is indeed a Devil and the Devil is a very nasty chef. So it did strengthen my faith in a back-handed, disgusted way to know it exists.

I believe coriander is technically the seeds and cilantro the leaves. But it doesn't matter. If I go to hell I will be force-fed cilantro-topped yoghurt. It mustn't go in nor on anything. Ever.

Research leads me to believe that some of us taste cilantro as unspeakably ghastly vile - soapy and rotten meat combined with the sensation of metal contacting a tooth filling - far beyond regular food preferences. Experience tells me that those who don't have the genetics to taste this vile aspect have no idea how truly awful it is, and how angry we get about it.

My Hell Diet of cilantro-topped yoghurt leads me to yoghurt, which besides upsetting my dairy-disliking tummy, has a nasty glairigeous twang which no amount of disguising can disguise. My Heaven Diet is anything else.

Having spent a happy forty years cooking, for myself and others, I don't think I've found anything that inspires such loathing as coriander. Over the years I've asked what it is that these people dislike, and there is such a striking uniformity of description, according with No Prophet's, that I'm sure that it is a very specific biochemical phenomenon.

I quite like it.

As to the nomenclature, this coriander=seed, cilantro=leaf division is absolutely fallacious. The use of the name "cilantro" has arisen in North America with the growing popularity of Mexican cuisine. A lot of cooks who had never used or even seen coriander started experimenting with Mexican cuisine, largely as a result of the influence of Diana Kennedy and Rick Bayliss, who, naturally, used the Spanish name for this herb. Call it cilantro or call it coriander - it's still the same leaf.

Turning to pizza, my rule is that the product on the pizza must occur on the Italian peninsula, and an Italian would be comfortable putting it on a pizza. Artichoke? Unusual, but permissible (and delicious). Pineapple? Abomination. And I like pineapple. Similarly, chicken on pasta. To an Italian, they are separate courses. To my mind it's a textural offence, as well. Traditions and rules are there for a reason. We shouldn't be shackled by them, but we should respect them.

Our local pizza place will bring you a bowl of anchovies for your family size caesar salad, if only one person wants the anchovies. I put the leftovers on my pizza as I eat it, which is actually better than putting them on before you bake the pizza. If the anchovies go in the oven, they tend to get their oil all over everything, and you can't taste much else. I much prefer a distinct bite of anchovy here and there.

Damp bread. No chip beef on toast, no hot turkey sandwiches, no gravy of any kind on any bread product and that includes biscuits and gravy. Most likely started when if ill my mother would give me warm milk on toast. [Projectile]

Milk and sugar on grits. Of all things. I have a friend who eats hers that way, and it almost makes me ill to watch. The proper way is butter and crumbled bacon all mixed together with the grits, or bake a dish of cheese grits! Yummy!

I'm one that can't abide ice cream and cake or pie on a plate together, but with me it's a texture thing.

I quite like the sweet/savoury mix, mint jelly with lamb and cranberry sauce with poultry. However I will never forget a dinner party where I was served beef stew with blackberries!No, no, a thousand times no!

Pancakes of the thin crepe type, as served next Tuesday, require lemon juice and sugar, not maple syrup.

And I cannot eat roast pork without the apple sauce my mother taught me. Half an onion diced small and sweated in butter, the apple diced larger added, with a spoon of sugar and a grind of black pepper. (Actually, back then, no-one ground pepper.) Possibly a little water. When cooked, the apple crushed, but not to a smooth pulp. The tartness cuts the fattiness of the pork. (It shouldn't be a very sweet eater, but Bramleys pulp too easily.)

This is obviously going to offend many.

No, no, no! No grits, no way, no how! I don't care how you cook them or what you put on or in them. Just no!

Re carbonara:
There is a tendency to try to gain creaminess with excessive cheese. Please don't!

Re anchovies:
Often too salty by half. Given where we live, smoked fish goes on pizza nicely, usually pickerel, jack or rainbow trout (often called respectively: walleye, northern pike, steelhead). Pickerel and jack are excellent pickled as well. Rainbow makes good gravlax or frozen and then sliced thinly when still icy like arctic char.

Also, no croutons in my salad.

I know that this aversion stems from my being given milk toast to eat when I was sick as a child. Either I was sick enough that I didn't want anything, or I was hungry and milk toast did not appeal at all. Also I don't like warm milk.
