As a food lover, cook, chef, caterer, there are very few items I will not try. In cooking school I was taught you have to at least try everything once...or twice before making your decree about them. So in the spirit of being a "professional" I never turn my nose up at anything that is put in front of me to try, in fact, I enjoy the challenge, and look forward to discovering new foods. However, there are certain ingredients I just can't get past the palate.
Parsley (I gag if I detect the slightest taste of this herb in my mouth)
Mayo (can only eat (in moderation) if it's heavily disguised with other flavors)
Yolks (holy crap, kill me)
Frog (have never tried it, but I have a deathly fear of frogs, Can't even see them in print, and the thought of eating it would be like a Fear Factor challenge)
but I will happily and eagerly try and eat anything and everything else under the sun. Put it in front of me and I'll dig in!
