In The Beginning

7 Oct

It’s easier to explain what I don’t like to eat than what I do.

-Pork and products that come from pigs. Well, I don’t dislike it, it’s that I just don’t eat it. I only stopped eating pig a few years ago, so I am still nostalgic about the taste of chorizo, proscuitto, and pancetta. Waving a slice of jamón serrano in front of me is a sure way to make me cry.

-Anything licorice-like. Fennel, aniseed, Sambuca, pastis, you name it. I can’t even stomach RedVines. Poisonous stuff. If I can leave the fennel seeds or the star anise out of a recipe, I will do it.

-Raspberries and blueberries. Yes, I’m strange. But hey, more for the rest of you!

-Ground and/or sweetened almonds. Marzipan is the creation of the devil.

-Things with flowery flavours, i.e. rose and lavender. Exception made for Hendrick’s Gin.

Other than that, it’s open season.

    I’m with you on licorice and flowers. Hate all the licorice-related tastes — it’s a visceral thing. Same for the florals! (Jasmine tea, gin…ugh!)
