Cool The worst thing I have ever eaten!!!

we have all herd someone say the best thing I have ever eaten was or even you yourself might have said it and then named the food and restaurant where you ate it or even the friend or family member who cooked it well here we are not going to talk about the best thing I have ever eaten but the worst thing now this is sort of specific this is how it works if you like fried chicken but have had it made really poorly name the restaurant and what the food is that you ate that was so bad or even if it was at aunt Betsy's house name what she cooked that was so bad

Well I will start I use to have this Aunt that always said she can cook but my taste buds knew different she would make hamburgers that tasted like overcooked unseasoned Beef I tell you she brought a new meaning to the cooking term Blackened no offense to her but she could not even make toast in a toaster with presets LOL

well that was pretty easy now it is your turn

Well the worst thing for me was when I once did Boston Baked Beans. I couldn't get any salt pork so decided to make my own.

I don't know what I did wrong but it tasted awful, the most salty thing I have ever eaten.
I don't know if I can even class this as the worst thing I've ever eaten as we only had two mouthfuls each before throwing the rest away.

Lives of great men all remind us we may make our life sublime.

Welcome to D.C., lilg1983!
For the most part, I like nearly everything. 'Course there are many items I have not had the opportunity to try.
Like Wyshiepoo, the worst thing I ever put in my mouth was of my own making and involved salt.
Way back in 1979 or 80, I was really making a serious effort to learn about cooking. Whilst attempting to make my first cheesecake, my eyes played a vicious trick on my mouth.
The recipe called for 1/4 tsp of salt. My eyes told my brain that "tsp" was "cup".
Needless to say, that attempt got flung out the door in short order.
I used to be a racist, but I don't have much interest in it since Dale Earnhardt got killed.
Outside of a dog, a book is a man's best friend. Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read.
Good judgement comes from experience; experience comes from bad judgement.

Tripes a la Mode de Caen!

I slaved over an Elizabeth David recipe, added cognac and wine. Served it up with pride. Sat down to eat. put a forkful in my mouth ..... and nearly threw up. I could neither chew nor swallow it. and had to spit it out. It was the taste and the feel of the tripe in my mouth.
Don’t look for the light at the end of the tunnel. Stomp along and switch the bl**dy thing on yourself.

This would have been in the late '70s. My ex and I had a wonderful supper at a Greek resto, can't remember the name. After supper, we ordered Greek coffee and the server asked if we would like dessert. We asked if they had cheese cake. The cheese cake arrived and it was absolutely awful. I suspect it really would have been quite good, if we had been expecting something savoury. I think it must have been tiropita.

I was on a cruise and getting a bite in the buffet. The buffet isn't really known for great food, but you can usually put together a tasty plate by going to the various stations. Unfortunately this was a small ship and the buffet was very limited. I picked up a breaded stuffed pork chop without really reading the description. It was stuffed with pineapple and cheddar... This could not really be part of their regular offerings, maybe someone was trying to get creative.

With that said, the formal dining room food was usually spot on.

We were in Antigua, our first "big" trip together, eons ago. We went to a little beach side restaurant for lunch, and I ordered chicken. I got what looked like a whole skinned rat on a plate. I couldn't even take a bite, I was so grossed out.
