I consider myself open to pretty much any kind of food. I’ll try anything at least once and often many times over the course of my life as tastes change. For instance- I hated eggs and mushrooms until I was in my 20s. Now I make mushroom omelette nearly every weekend. There are a few foods I’ve all but given up on- beets and brussel sprouts come to mind. I’ve tried dozens of incarnations of both and have been let down everytime. What are some preparatios that would change peoples’ minds on “difficult” foods? Yes, I’ve had brussel sprouts cooked in bacon and they’re ok. But it’s sort of cheating....bacon cooked in anything is going to taste pretty good.
