Anyone else had a "conversion" to anything of late? I'm interested
to see if others have changing tastes.
However, I do often think that I should try some of the things that I
know that I *used* to hate but, just in case my taste may have changed,
I might now enjoy.
Oysters spring to mind. When I tried them probably 20+ years ago, they
were just like eating salty snot. But I love seafood (and always have)
but I might give them a go next time I see some *really* fresh ones on
That's a good one - I used to detest oysters. But since going regularly
to Normandy & Brittany I've tried them again, and love them.
I think the key is not to think of them as "seafood", in the same
context as, say, cooked mussels, prawns and suchlike, but more to see
them as related to their taste, ie as a sort of sea-produced pickle.
I also find the *really* fresh ones have a sort of mineral jolt to them,
almost like a belt of espresso, but different. Whatever the reason,
they seem to wake me up and enliven me.

I'm quite happy not to try tripe *ever* again, though.
No I'm done with tripe too I must say - I keep trying to talk myself
into sampling one of the french dishes that use it, every time I see it
on a french menu, but I always come back to the smell of it, which as a
boy used to make me retch.
I'm also not a fan of liver either, although I have changed my mind
about kidneys; done properly they're a delight.
