Seafood or fish of any kind. I can't stand the smell of it, and I don't know how anyone could smell it and still eat it. Don't tell me that the very fresh stuff has no smell because it does, just much more mild, my sister lives on the coast of Maine and gets seafood right off the boat, literally.

Cilantro, it tastes like soap to me, it's a flavor that I can detect right off. I am becoming a bit more tolerant to it, but am not crazy about how "trendy" it is. The last time I went to Cheesecake Factory, it was sprinkled on all 3 appetizers, even though it wasn't listed in the description.

Organ meats. I liked liver as a child especially venison liver, but even the smell turns me green as an adult. Not crazy over wild game.

beef liver , creamed corn, sardines, or most baked fish. i love fried fish pretty much doesn't matter what fish, but baked or steamed is a big no no for me. go figure.

You're unlikely to find octopus on my plate, unless someone else puts it there. I'll eat it, but won't take it willingly. Just doesn't do it for me. But I really don't think there's anything in the way of food that I absolutely won't eat. I may eat it to be polite or because that's all there is, but I'll eat it. Oh, yeah. I won't eat one of those fried whole onion "flowers," even to be polite. Too greasy. Otherwise, I take the attitude that it hasn't killed the locals and probably won't kill me. I'm far more leery of badly done food than any particular food.

On My Plate...

Okra. Yuck! I don't even like it fried (and I could eat a fried almost-anything) or smothered in tomatoes.

I don't think I'm related to most of you because I've never met a veggie that I do not like. I also like liver, seafood, and most fishes. As GLC said, I won't like anything that isn't well-prepared. Also, textures are very important to me. Sometimes, the dish will taste fine, but I cannot tolerate the texture. Warm mayo-based salad comes to mind as does boiled ham. Boingy or bloody chicken on my plate? Game over. I'll lose my appetite.

While I like to try different things, and like to believe I am fairly adventurous, I know I won't be trying some of the things mentioned like the maggoty cheese and the buloot. I simply cannot get my head around it. I also do not want food that is fighting back. For example, I love octopus, but I saw a vid posted here where it was struggling to crawl out of the bowl and slapped the diner with its tentacles as it was being eaten. I'll pass, thanks. I just don't have enough backbone.

I like liver, but only if I cook it. Then I know it's done right.

Here is what Kathleen doesn't want to see on her plate. Eggs, bacon, pancakes with fruit topping, sausage and potatoes... all touching.
