I am so happy I stumbled onto this site a few months ago, but there is one thing I've noticed. I have very immature taste buds, at least compared to most of my fellow Chowhounds.
I saw on the "condiments" topic most mentioned fancy hot sauces or chutney's I've never seen and I'll be honest.... I was expecting the typical mayo and mustard type stuff. Okay, well fancy mustard at least.
I've also mentioned things that everyone else who loves food enjoys, but I loath. For example; dark chocolate, goat cheese and sushi.
I think I have SOME sophisticated tastes like stinky cheeses, good steak tartar, anything duck and any beautiful, not nauseatingly sweet pastry.
I will admit though, I still like an old fashioned grilled cheese made with "cheese product" and 10% natural canned tomato soup. I like making my own little Lunchables with Swiss cheese and turkey and fried egg sandwiches with no fancy frills.
Is it because I have 4 young children? Is it because I sit at a computer at my office all day? Or is it just because I've not been exposed to some of this cool stuff? I hope my taste buds grow up before I'm 50!
