Cringe. Memories of an intact severed sow's head sitting on butcher paper on the kitchen table. Shudder. Which GG boiled.

Tell about your run in, Kadesma!

I cannot stand beef liver, chicken livers or chicken gizzards. Beef liver literally makes me gag. One day my mom was cooking it making a liver and onions dish. It smelled sooo good! I was excited to try it. First bite and gag.

As a kid I loved head cheese ate it every time I could. One day I came home from school went to the refrigerator to get a glass of lemonade, opened the door and there staring at me was one big hogs head eyes and all intact. I bet my screams can still be heard echoing over the years. I've never eaten that yuk again. Same with the bear paw someone gave gramps to cook for us.YUKITY YUK YUK And as for my grandmother who tried to serve me my pet rabbit, lord love her that was hard to forgive or eat. I didn't it was hard going to bed before dark and with growling tummy

I have to agree...I'm old enough now that I never have to eat another green bean casserole.

I like green beans with lemon zest, garlic and sliced almonds.

Nasty food to me is venison(deer meat) Everyone always says you have to try it my way. As far as I am concerned there is no good way to eat it.

Mushrooms!!!!!

They look horrible. Can't stand how slimy they are. Gummy little things. Reminds me every time I see them of the little slugs the slimy ones that hide under a rock. Grosses me out. I can't handle even looking at food pics that have them in it.
I have issues with them. Excuse me while I work it out..

I grew up eating fried cod eggs. They aren't bad. I suspect they could be quite yummy. I like nice, pink, salmon "caviar". I don't think I have had the really good stuff, but I would like to try it. The less good stuff is yummy. Sour cream or crème fraiche go well with caviar.

As to escargot, I find them bland and rubbery. The sauce is excellent. It would go well with mushrooms and they would fit nicely in those special bowl/plate things they use to serve escargot. Now, sea snails, that's a whole 'nother story. Lots of yummy flavour and not usually as rubbery.
