I hate the smell of herring, but love to eat it.

My first husband used to have herring in the can for breakfast. YUK! I couldn't even open the can.

Ch..ch... chi chicken! Can't stand the smell, I run around the kitchen like a lunatic trying to escape my fate when I have to cook it lol!

Cheese curls, boiled egg, raw onion, cauliflower and raw whole fish all smell bad to me.

I eat everything but the chicken or raw onion regardless of the smell.

If you put salt on the lid of the pot while cooking cabbage it removes some of the odour while cooking. Not sure why but it works.

Cooked cabbage, overcooked any kind of brassica. Curry powder - I like curries, just not that yellow stuff called curry powder. We figured out what it is that makes me nauseous from that smell: stale fenugreek.

I make my own curry paste and powder. Smells fine. Maybe you should try making your own without fenugreek?

My all time favorite breakfast is baked potaot and hearing. And I buy the whole fish, head and tail and all. Clean and cut my self. my hands stink after that and I keep washing them all day, but still I love the taste. Weird, huh?

Lemon juice, Charlie. I used to keep a bottle in my tacklebox when I was an avid fisherman. It works well.

I haven't got a lot of use for "curry powder". I do have some garam masala and I buy Patak's curry pastes.

I wouldn't mind having a recipe for that yellow, supermarket curry powder. A number of Danish recipes use it. It wouldn't work with a more authentic curry powder.
