Dishes or meals that you love to cook...but not to eat?

JasmineG | Sep 26, 2007 05:47 PM

I realized anew last night that I love making risotto, but I don't particularly like eating it. I was feeling a little under the weather and out of sorts last night, and the chopping and stirring of making risotto was just what I needed. But then I ate it and didn't really enjoy eating it (thank goodness I love arancini!). (I don't think it's that I don't make good risotto, I've had it elsewhere too and it's not that I dislike it, it's fine, but it would never be my choice). I really make it only because the making of it is so fun. Do other people have these dishes or meals that they enjoy cooking, but don't really enjoy eating?
