Broccoli, Brussels sprouts, liver. Everyone has at least something they were forced to eat as a kid. Some of us have risen above, some still blanch at the very mention of smoked salmon (me).
What are your food hang-ups? Which have you overcome? Which hold as strong as ever?
By way of example, Mom used to boil the hell (not to mention the nutrients and flavor) out of broccoli. Now, lightly steamed and topped with some sun-dried tomato butter, it’s one of my favorite veggies.
So send your ideas…I’m working on a column about great ways to prepare long-maligned foods and could use your input.
