What foods do you dislike?

Every few years I’ll be at a market that has a selection of the most beautiful olives and I’m tempted …

… to buy them all. I like how colorful they are, how diverse their textures are, how elegant they look when served with a piece of parmesan or spicy nuts. The only problem? I hate them. It’s not that I’m a fan of Kalamatas, but not of Castelvetranos. Or that I like the oil-hardened, but not the allspice-filled one. I don’t like any of them. And this is not a picky situation either. Every year I’ll try a good bite – like no nibble – to see if I’ve outgrown the aversion, and each time I’m reminded of how fast I want to run in the opposite direction of a puttanesca.

I’m not proud of that! But I take comfort in the fact that other people who write about food have unexpected dislikes too. Ina Garten despises coriander and Ruth Reichl avoids honey.

What about you? Do you have any food aversions that might surprise people?
