standard cooking tasks that you just won't do......

alkapal | Sep 29, 2008 06:46 AM

i can't stand handling raw chicken. i can deal with rock cornish game hens, but regular chicken -- especially fatty ones -- just are smelly to me. i hate, hate, hate to cut up a chicken into pieces for frying, braising, whatever. i always wear latex hospital-type gloves to handle raw poultry.

i know as a chow cook, i should easily overcome this disgust. but i can't -- and likely that is true because i don't want to!!

do you have a task that every "cook" easily handles (or so you think....), but you won't do it? or you will do it, but with your nose turned up and a grimace on your otherwise friendly face?
