    i think olives are over rated. and white wine.

    actually chocolate is pretty over rated, especially cadburys and nestle.

    I have to be in the mood for an olive. I can't say I couldn't live without them.

    ANCHOVIES are a weakness of mine. I would certainly MISS them, let's put it like that. And MUSSELS, but they are more of an OCCASSIONAL food than a staple.

    I often think im a bit boring with food....i dont like things like olives, shellfish, anything too fancy or too strong a flavour. Im much happier with bland tasting food, pasta, chicken, etc

    You just need to go to a nice restaurant that will confuse you with all the nice flavours and fancy names Rachey. I can't imagine there are many culinary WIZARDS on 'The Island'.

    i just went and did a £120 shop today and didn't but one single bit of junk food - it was quite liberating - but also daunting to think that i've got not convenience food for the next fortnight.

    i bought no chocolate or booze - scary stuff.

    We have LOADS of good restaurants here actually, it is a top tourist destination after all :disco:

    But i always stick to simple pasta or chicken dishes really, mainly because alot of other dishes are either too spicy, contain peppers or are all meat things.

    Yes :shy:

    Only because im not a big meat eater and the thought of steak made me feel ill, but it was actually lovely.

    I cant eat lamb or veal tho...ever.

    I'm finding my palate unnervingly similar to Rachey's, reading this and the other thread!

    I think I'm a bit more adventurous as I love my spicy stuff, but on a day to day level, we're scarily similar!

    I was very unadventurous as a child, but I was once at a meal and didn't want to make a FAUX PAS by refusing to eat something, so I just RAMMED IT DOWN my throat, and from then on I became a veritable EDDIE [without the issues of course].

    Do you like proper spicy stuff? Mouth burning? I never understand people who eat curries that burn your mouth, you cant even taste them after a while

    i'm quite adventurous with food - i think it stems from my mother being such a flop cook and me being brought up on casseroles and oven chips.

    as soon as i left home i tried all the things i'd never tasted when i lived at home.

    Beef/lamb - mainly because i just dont eat much meat, but i can see why people do like it.


    Salt & vinegar crisps....i just dont like the tangyness, plus i hate vinegar.

    Spag Bol...i dont like mince unless its with cheese sauce in lasagne.

    Whyever NOT? It might be lovely.

    I'm a little apprehensive about going to Mongolia - apparently a host often SPITS in the drink of his guest. Maybe I'll pass JUST THAT ONCE.

    I don't really eat red meat, aside from steak a couple of times a year, 50% for health reasons, 50% cause I prefer the alternatives...

    Have it with meatballs then. Either way it's one of my fave foods, especially with finely chopped onions & bacon.
