But anyway, how did you discover all these other foodstuffs? Did someone turn you on to them, or was it self-discovery and education?
I am not sure. My father was sort of like that in that he often bought imported food (mostly Italian) but he didn't cook exotic food. As a child, I was exposed to a lot of German cooking from my grandmother. She would take me to a German movie theater and, afterwards, to a German Food store (Kuhns on Lincoln Ave) and buy me German candy. My mother often tried cooking new things. However, my exotic tastes are mostly limited to sweets. With non-sweets I would say that I have typical American tastes except I don't like fish. In any event, I try to analyse the taste of food that I like because I am analytical by nature.
