...the first time you had caviar?
Swoon with pleasure after your first taste of foie gras? Did your eyes roll back in your head the first time you had sushi?
How about sauerkraut? Anchovy? Buttermilk?
Some people who love them say these foods "are an acquired taste." Did you have to learn to like goat's cheese? Maybe black coffee, kimchi or capers, menudo or pickled beets?
And if you did "acquire a taste," how? Did you revisit some food from time to time and find your acceptance growing? Did someone prepare the offensive food in a new, tasty way? Did you find it more enjoyable with candlelight, white linen and a glass or two of wine? Or have you given up and made peace with the fact you're never gonna like sweetbreads?
I'd to hear your experiences. As a terribly picky child, forced to sit at the table for hours trying to choke down cold liver, I know that method is not conducive to broadening one's food repertoire.
