You can always ignore a thread you're not interested in, Steve. Please don't go.

I really don't like curry.

I reserve the word hate in my daily life for very few things. Personally I think it's an ugly word and the only food I've tried and truly hate is brussel sprouts. They are the work of the devil and nobody will ever make me eat another one. It's perfectly ok with me if you love them. So there you have it.

The very differences between us is exactly what makes this place so enjoyable. Just my humble opinion, mind you.
Good for you, Hoot. I was trying to give you a line of thumbs up but they won't work.

Isn't it funny how brussels sprouts are never just "OK" - we either love 'em or hate 'em - no middle line!

(Don't worry, Kayelle, I'll always eat yours if you need a volunteer.)

You may have mine too, MC. I despise the little round balls of h*ll.

I've tried to like them, I really have. I would rather eat my way through an entire vat of cilantro.

Thank you, Dawg, I really will enjoy them.


I'm rather ashamed to say this but I like cilantro too. I'm one of those people for whom it doesn't taste soap-y.

No slinking for me! I am out and proud to declare I love brussel sprouts (although overcooked they are rendered unappetising) and cilantro for that matter.

Tastes can also change. Since my mum's dementia became more pronounced she eats certain foods she disliked before...

I'll eat anything that's not potentially poisonous. Including everything mentioned on this thread.

I love cilantro and Brussels sprouts.

I made Killer Brussels spouts last night -- shredded, mixed with shallot and red and orange peppers and garlic. Sautťed with butter and evoo.

Brussel sprouts can be rendered more palatable by being blanched, halved then stir fried with pancetta and/or chestnuts - particularly attractive as a xmas side dish.

I seem to recall that cabbage and brussel sprouts get a bad press mostly emanating from excessive/overcooking. When they are cooked properly i.e. not soggy and still retaining some of their flavour, they can be redeemed.
