This is quite a off-the-cuff topic that I’ve been thinking quite a lot about lately. People’s food likes and dislikes tend to get a lot of chatter, either for people’s “oh, I just can’t stand…” or strange appreciations. This is, if anything, about the opposite of that—have you actively courted a food to start liking it more? Is it something you’re interested in doing?
Over the course of this summer, I’ve been adjusting my palette so that I can enjoy eggs and tomatoes more, and it’s gone pretty well. I’m not quite at the stage where I could bite into a tomato like an apple yet, but the possibilities are unlimited. As someone with a few strong allergies, it’s been nice to be able to push my tastes into a more varied direction, since I know what it’s like when you just can’t eat something.
