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

Very true. It needs some but the cheese and bacon combo is very rich. Cheese lovers can grate more in for themselves.

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.

A lot of saltiness can be taken out of anchovies by soaking them in milk for half an hour.

The damp bread thing.
Why do people think cutting zucchini (courgette) into wedges, breading them and frying would be a good idea? Same with eggplant slices (aubergine, brinjal). Don't bread things!

anchovies & milk: shall try. Thanks!

The President gets my vote. Pineapple is the fruit of the devil. Vile, disgusting so-called foodstuff.

And while I'm at it, I'd also ban cucumber. People who love it tell me it doesn't taste of anything. I'm here to tell you it tastes incredibly strong and contaminates everything it touches.

I'm moving to Iceland.

In England pineapples were anaemically pale, pale yellow. I tasted my first decent pineapple in Fiji in 1971. Perhaps they are now not picked so under-ripe for transport to the UK.

We now grow our own pineapples and picked them when fully ripe. But I won't put them on pizza. "Hawaiian" pizzas are unheard of in Hawaii, I understand.

Similarly we eat fresh pineapple but then it is locally produced and actually tastes of something - bananas are the same, even if I went to UK I wouldn't eat them there as we grow tasty ones in the back garden not flavourless muck!

Papaya is one fruit that always tastes soapy however fresh it is - once or twice a year I manage a little as long as it has lime or lemon juice sprinkled over it but otherwise [Projectile]

Balsamic makes me [Projectile] I even get queasy when I see people lapping up the gallons they pour on a salad with a spoon.

Even as a child I detested bananas and pineapple. It was only when I lived in South Asia that I found out what was missing - taste. I still won't touch the facsimiles peddled in North America. Watermelon is insipid. Lettuce is a complete waste of agricultural resources.

I quite like coriander. And most other melons.

As an adult, I banned egg custard from my house. I haven't had it since I was force fed it as a child.

Pineapple, cucumber and bananas may well not be at their best in Scotland; berries generally do not grow well here. Buy and eat what grows best locally.

Absolutely!

Spinach seems one of the most universally loathed green veggies but not over here where it is in season most of the year and is grown in the next village down towards the river. One day we were driving past a field where they were harvesting the stuff so we bought 10 rupees worth [not a lot of money], took it home and within half an hour it was cooked and on the lunch plate. It tasted vastly different from the frozen spinach I used to get from Sainsbury!

Actually, thinking about this thread and loathed foods I think half the problem is the cooking - people seem to loathe Okra [ladies fingers, vendaka, etc.] and say it is slimy but that is not how it has to be.

As for Calimari - why not just buy a bag of rubber bands and chew them?

Spinach should never be cooked (yuck!), but it is wonderful raw -- as a salad or in a sandwich.

Spanokopita is great.

I grew up in the 50s and 60s with English cooking of vegetables each done separately and overdone removing flavour. No wonder the kids won't eat them. I think that cooking in the UK has improved now. At least where I go on my return trips it has.

... Because, calamari needn't be rubber bands. Properly prepared, squid is quite tender. It has to be flash grilled or stewed low and slow. As a friend put it to me once, "two or two": two minutes or two hours, nothing in between.

Milk toast -- an old grandmothers' cure-all (sort of like chicken soup) from time immemorial.

My life would be significantly less worth living if I couldn't sop up my pasta sauce with a piece or two of nice fresh crusty Italian bread. Torn off the loaf, not sliced. My grandmother always said it is a sin to slice bread.

But olives? Fruit of the devil's own making. (I'll bet that's what he gave Eve, not an apple.)

We must disagree once again, Miss Amanda. Of course the serpent offered Eve an olive, because it was the most delicious, tempting fruit in the Garden. She wouldn't have accepted it were it not.

(The Serpent must have had all the necessary ingredients to make it edible first; olives cannot be eaten fresh off the tree. Or perhaps they were edible straight off the tree before the Fall.)

The milk toast got me dredging up repressed memory of blood soup. I think it is a central and eastern Europe thing. Pig blood. I have memory of my Prussian born gramma spooning it into my mouth while recovering from mumps and measles. Had them in rapid succession, and apparently I needed building up. I recall the 'skin' forming on top as it cooled, which is probably clotting, and also sticking to the roof of my mouth. I will skip lunch now.

Reminds me of dim sum one Sunday brunch in a Chinese restaurant. Along with all the dumpling delicacies was a soup-like dish of dark red liquid. I thought it might be borsch (yes, I know what you're going to say). I asked the waitress what it was, and she replied, "Duck's blood."

Needless to say, I passed.

Salad should not be served with hot food. At least not on the same plate.

Hot food should be served on a warm plate, and salad on a cold one, keep them on separate plates, otherwise what happens with too much pub food in Britain occurs:

Lettuce which was presumably crisp and cold when it was put on the warm plate in contact with the hot food is already going limp when it gets to the table, and halfway through the meal the the cucumber is lukewarm. Putting cold salad on the same plate as hot food is a sure way to make the food underwhelming. Just leave it off or put it on a side plate.

Proof enough for me that she did swallow*. But we digress.

No excuse. We could agree on a salad bar, I would imagine. Things that grow in the ground are eminently edible -- except, of course, for olives.

Yea and amen.

I must be in the minority when it comes to coriander - I can take it or leave it. The seeds are lovely ground and cooked with cauliflower and/or broccoli, but the leaves? I'd really just as soon have parsley.

I understand that whether you taste fresh coriander as soapy is a genetic thing, rather like being able to roll your tongue.

And I'll 'fess up now - I quite like pineapple on pizzas (sorry Mr. Johannesson), especially if they also have ham, mushrooms and sweetcorn.

I'd better see myself out ... [Big Grin]

Many years ago we were in Gujarat [NW India] and there they put sugar in everything - vegetable dishes contain sugar, even Dal Fry has sugar in it - not only is is inappropriate, not only does it taste vile but also, perhaps unsurprisingly, Type 2 diabetes is rife!

I wonder if that could be a remembrance of the colonists? When I was very young we stayed with an old lady in Fife who didn't think fresh peas were fit to eat unless she threw a large spoonful of sugar in the pot after boiling the life out of them.

Different sprouts, but we can never understand why brussels sprouts form a necessary part of the festive Christmas dinner. Best cooked, cooled and then put into the compost bin is our opinion of them.

No excuse. We could agree on a salad bar, I would imagine. Things that grow in the ground are eminently edible -- except, of course, for olives.
A salad bar without olives?!?
[Eek!]

Good idea. Olives are quite unnecessary; you can get the same effect anyway simply by rolling candle ends around in salt for a bit.

So someone ordered pineapple on their pizza, and the cook refused to do it! (Hello Giggles)
[Eek!]

There's a link there to the original tweet, which has a link to a relevant pic. Doesn't look like it's a Hawai'ian pizza (usually ham and pineapple). But still.

And while I'm at it, I'd also ban cucumber. People who love it tell me it doesn't taste of anything. I'm here to tell you it tastes incredibly strong and contaminates everything it touches.

Are you my long-lost-separated-at-birth twin? [Paranoid]

(though the cucumber ban is more about its repetitive action than taste per se)

I am glad to find you, sister.

I did a church talk recently where I spoke about my three most hated foodstuffs:
3. Pineapple
2. Cucumber
1. Pear
It's fair to say my audience was bewildered (though about 10% shared my cucumber loathing). Indeed, one man was heard to mutter, "That girl needs help."

I ate in a Gujarati restaurant once (can't remember what city I was in at the time - somewhere in the UK, probably), and remember thinking that the food was quite horribly sweet. I put it down to a bad choice of restaurant, but maybe it was a bad choice of Indian region.

To me cucumber tastes like watermelon, which I like. Trouble is, people often leave the skin on cucumbers. Yuck! Both cucumber and watermelon have to be eaten minus the skin.

I don't think anyone has mentioned rye yet. The devil serves rye bread in hell. I'll eat a Reuben sandwich but on sourdough, please.

Oh, it was a children's talk about things that make you go 'yuck', and these foods make me go 'yuck'. And that's okay with food, but in Jesus' time, some people thought other people were 'yuck', and wouldn't touch them or anything. But Jesus loved them and touched them and healed them, and nobody is 'yuck' to Jesus. [Smile]
