Thread Starter 
what is your favorite food ?

what food you cannot eat ( answers are accepted only if you have already taste it) ?

I begin :
- i can eat many differents foods if they are well cooked : the list is too long and increasing each years. My best meal was taken in Bocuse's restaurant (the guy is totally megalomaniac indeed)
- i can't eat jelly

Anything with sugar. More sugar is better. Examples:

-all chocolate, except for that baking kind (phooey!)
-tiramisu
-flan
-ice cream
-cannoli


What I don't like
Anything without sugar.

Yes, my teeth are falling off. Why do you ask?

(Well, yogurt's okay, too. If you add sugar.)

Favorite food: meat.
- Red, white, fish, meat-pie, meat stew, meat kabobs. . . . The only exceptions are certain uncooked & slimy invertabrate meats. I recall an experience with sea urchin at a japanese restaurant. Very slimy. It reminded me of mucous.

Foods that I won't choose to eat:
- Asparagus, leafy vegetables, things that are sour, things with a slimy texture.

Now, that's not saying I won't eat them if they're put on my plate.

Biologists tell me that there are three kinds of consumers: Predators (carnivorous), grazers (herbivorous), and Scavengers (omnivorous). I would indeed fall into the scavenger category, with a bias towards finding a hunk of meat. When I need to create my own meals I usually throw a little of everything in the refrigerator into a pan and stir-fry.

Not exactly French culinary tastes.

My favorite food, sadly, is still pizza. I'm all grown up and my tastes have developed for spicy foods, especially for Indian food, but pizza is the one food I wouldn't want to be without. I worked for a guy once who told me that pizza comes in two varieties for him: a 1 and a 2. But while I've occasionally found a truly gross pizza, the occasions are few and far between.

The absolute worst food is the traditional English breakfast I was subjected to fairly recently. I don't know how you guys do it, but you really know how to ruin sausage, eggs, bacon, tomatoes, and toast. :o

My favorite, genre-wise, would probably be Italian. And I love seafood very much. Basically, it's when the two are combined (some sort of shrimp garlic pasta with clams and sauce) that I absolutely go bonkers and am in heaven.

I also like Mexican food, but sometimes it doesn't like me so I'm careful about when and how often I eat it. 45 minutes of culinary pleasure could result in 1-2 days of gastrointestinal "issues".



And I love fruit: bananas, grapes and peaches especially.

What I can't eat?

Most vegetables, especially ones that are green (spinach, turnips, brussel sprouts, cabbage, celery, etc.) although I like cucumbers.

Also, I hate Thai food, most fast food burgers (quite disgusting, actually) and I absolutely REFUSE to eat anything with nasty, stinky Parmesan cheese sprinkled all over it! GROSS!

My fav: Spinach Lasagna

What I can't eat: Mayonnaise

My favorite foods are chicken fingers, fries, and pizza.

I'm another one that hates anything with nuts.

Ooh, also in the not-nuts-about-nuts crowd. Not even coconut.

As my grandmother says, "nuts for the nutty!" (She says this whenever she hears the word "nuts" in any context. She's getting up there in years.)

Indian or Thai food are my favorites; not too spicy though. I also love Italian, specially pasta with pesto sauce...and the more garlic the better!!!!
And as for Belgian DARK CHOCOLATE!!!!!!!!! yummie...nirvana

Dislike: anything laced with additives, colors and chemicals...invariably tastes godawful.

English breakfast can be very good, in fact it's the best thing in english cooking, perhaps the one you eat was badly cook. Bad cooking ruins everything . The worst thing in english cooking is the Jelly <img src="graemlins/surprised.gif" border="0" alt="[Surprised]" />

Yes, catfish as well.

I think American food needs some props here, our beautiful mish-mash of cultures can lead to some faaantastic confections. You cannot deny the beauty that is Tex-Mex or the cheeseburgers and fries that the rest of the world loves to hate (and eat).

Maybe you should try real, fresh coconut.

Buy one at the store (make sure you can still hear the juice sloshing around inside). Go find a nice machete to crack it open.

Pour the juice out and set it aside. Scrape the white meat out into shaving.

You can add it to something, like some dessert dish. Or eat it plain. With sugar, of course.

This is the only way I like coconut.

In my experience, English cooking is awful! I was in the UK last summer, I stayed in a little guesthouse somewhere in Cornwall for a few days...the people there were so amazingly friendly, but had no clue about cooking, specially vegetables! I don't think the word "steamer" is in the culinary vocabulary of England, certainly not where I went...vegetables were invariable blasted to oblivion, boiled, boiled and boiled some more until they became a mush of tasteless glop, ewwwww...yuk!

The 'full English breakfast'....now thats quite an ordeal ...I ordered one the first morning I was there...and I got enough food for about 15 people: a monstrous bowl of cereal, followed by this totally massive 'fry-up' on a plate the size of a tractor wheel; 2 thick rounds of fried bread with a fried egg on one, and a pile of scrambled eggs on the other, fried tomatoes, fried mushrooms, 3 fried sausages, a pile of fried potatoes cut into circles, a huge pile of baked beans, fried bacon, and a chunk of dark salami-like stuff called 'black-pudding', and the whole thing was a quarter-inch deep in grease! YUK! Now American size portions are often on the large size...but this was way, way beyond ridiculous. I am vegetarian, so much of the dish was 'out of bounds' and as I tackled the scrambled eggs region..(actually that part was nice, but it was all I managed!).. the waitress returned with a rack of 6 slices of toast, a dish of butter and a jar of marmalade, saying "if you want any more, dear, just let me know" and off she bustled to help more customers. As I am only used to eating a slice of toast and a coffee for breakfast, I ate about 10% of what was served up...and I was so full I could barely move for the rest of the morning !

The best breakfast i have take was at the Marriot Hotel in San Diego in 1992 during the america cup. The way that the chief cooked the potatoes was great. But the one of the worse thing was the seafood, i order scallop one of my favorite meal, unfortunately it was deep fry, all the taste of the seafruit was removed , just replaced by the taste of the fry : best way to ruin the best thing.

Usually i did not eat many things at breakfast but sometimes at holiday when i wake up light i like to have great breakfast.

Favorite eats:

sushi
spanish tapas
pizza
fresh bread with butter

but nothing quite satisfies that carbo-craving like pasta

as for non-favorites, I guess I'd lean toward not much liking anymore the fast food that I used to dig. It just doesn't sit very well.
post #26 of 35


No...actually Japanese (Sushi or Teriyaki), Chinese, Tai, Italian, Greek and Mexican.

Worst...Liver, Salmon Loaf, German food, English food, Burger King, Taco Bell...this could go on for a while...

I agree with groverat; American cuisine is sadly overlooked. Although, this is changing. <a href="http://www.stylenetwork.com/Shows/Nigella/" target="_blank">Nigella Lawson</a> frequently cooks "Amurrican" and show some US cookbooks as being the last word.

Faves:

Breakfast- Indian leftovers one day old...somehow a night fermenting in the fridge makes Saag Chicken taste so much better.

Lunch- Pie'n'mash (with liqour of course).

Evening meal- (im discounting Indian 'cos I had it for breakfast...but thats the only reason)
White bait, lots of lemon and black pepper followed by some pasta, spaghetti perhaps, a garlic and extra virgin olive oil sauce, parmesan and flat leaf parsley on top and some fresh baked crusty bread.

Can't eat (miss desperatly) soft boiled eggs.
post #30 of 35
My favorite is definitely Indian food if it is prepeared well. I think it will be the next food to become popular. Japanese had the advantage of being healthy. Thai became popular largely because people were used to Chinese and wanted to try something different. Indian food has no advantages and smells a little weird if you're not used to it. But it is becoming more popular simply because it is so good.

Any food can be really great if well prepared. Even simple things like chicken salad, stuffing, or keilbasa can be amazing if done right. A lot of foreigners and even Americans themselves don't realize that there really is such a thing as American cuisine.
post #31 of 35
Oh, and the food I don't like is Vietnamese except for the most Americanized things. It can be kinda weird.

Cucumbers are actually a fruit... anything that has seeds in it are a fruit (made so animals would eat it and spread the seeds farther away from the plant then the wind could...)

as for my favorate eats... I will eat (taste) anything once... and I usually like it... the only thing i really dont like very much is anything too chewey (although that can be a good thing at times) I just dont like having to work too hard to get something down... as for my faves, you gotta go with anything italian (aldente pasta cannot be beat, esp w/a good sauce) not only pasta tho... veal, chicken, fish... and the obligatory pizza...

seafood is also very good...

Nuts are also very good. You guys dont like pistachios? peanuts? walnuts? what is the matter with you?!
