Is it me or does that ice cream scooper look like a fish head?

2 Alex Belth   ~  Oct 21, 2011 12:39 pm

Aw, man, why do you have to bring fish into this?


3 Chyll Will   ~  Oct 21, 2011 12:46 pm

[2] Because it's Friday >;)

4 thelarmis   ~  Oct 21, 2011 1:55 pm

apples, cider, doughnuts, ice cream.

i'm batting .250. i've only had one of those foods. i'll give you a hint: i got a walk-off hit!

5 RIYank   ~  Oct 21, 2011 2:15 pm

You... have never... eaten an... apple?

Yeah, that't it, now I'm done being surprised by your culinary history. That one did it.

6 thelarmis   ~  Oct 21, 2011 2:20 pm

[5] yeah man, never had an apple. however, i have apple sauce in my fridge. does that count?! : )

i'm going on a date tonite and i believe we are eating Indian food. no apples, but i'm good with saag curry. go figure...

7 Chyll Will   ~  Oct 21, 2011 2:32 pm

[5] Haaa! and I thought I was picky... >;)

8 thelarmis   ~  Oct 21, 2011 2:43 pm

[7] and i left you a funny message at ny minute : )

my ex used to put bits of apples in a great chicken dish she used to make, but i haven't had a straight, fresh apple. and, of course, i've never had an apple pie. that just seems...ick!

9 Chyll Will   ~  Oct 21, 2011 2:55 pm

[8] Un-American? But seriously, I've changed my mind on a lot of stuff over the years that you would agree I thought were nasty. I still don't eat mac n cheese because it looks like re-fried brains to me, but I'll eat macaroni medley (macaroni noodles with chopped stewed tomatoes and spice), I'll have apple pie now as opposed to as a kid and I no longer drink Strawberry Quik or Kool-Aid (or any Kool-Aid for that matter...) A lot of times it's a matter of presentation, and a lot of stuff is presented in a way that looks inedible even if it ultimately tastes great.

You wouldn't have caught me dead in a restaurant that specialized in Indian cuisine until the show I was working on highlighted one of the best in town, Devi's. Incredible edibles there. Cauliflower? Brain salad! But the way they made it, I had seconds...

10 Chyll Will   ~  Oct 21, 2011 3:04 pm

[8] And don't worry, I left one back >;)

11 Alex Belth   ~  Oct 21, 2011 3:25 pm

8 and 9) The two of youse should have your own cooking show. Now that I'd watch.

13 ms october   ~  Oct 21, 2011 3:41 pm

[11] ha seriously - that would be something else. it could either be about them exploring new foods, or discussing all the foods they won't touch - either way it would be entertaining.

14 Alex Belth   ~  Oct 21, 2011 4:52 pm

12) Couldn't resist, sister. 13) I'd pay to see it.

15 thelarmis   ~  Oct 21, 2011 5:54 pm

[11] oh man, that would kick ass! hey chyll, when do we start shooting?

we'll have to come up with a theme, like ending each show at a different Carvel, or something!

[14] we'll have you on as a guest. you'll mention all these exotic foods and fancy recipes and chyll & i will shoot them all down! it'll be a riot.

[9] i've never had any kind of kool-aid, but i used to love chocolate quik. still have it when i visit my parents house...so, next weekend, with bagels!

and, yeah: cauliflower = brain salad

16 Chyll Will   ~  Oct 21, 2011 6:00 pm

This has got to be the longest Taster's Cherce thread I've ever seen.
I'm down for a show like that; two food haters exploring a world gone mad with nasty recipes and ingredients. Apples? No, thank you... Mac n cheese? Bleah!

It's the Bizzaro Andrew Zimmern Show! The Mikey Show! We Won't Eat It, We Hate Everything!!!

17 thelarmis   ~  Oct 21, 2011 6:09 pm

[16] but, it sounds like you and i have explored and do indeed like quite a bit of foods.

hell, i LOVE indian and thai food and cook sauteed spinach all the time. never had a pear though. i didn't have a salad til i was like 23, but i like 'em now. i do love me some plain pasta and garlic bread. but the bread can't be burnt. oh, and i hate BBQ. there are always lines on the bird. ICK!

18 Chyll Will   ~  Oct 21, 2011 6:22 pm

[17] That's the irony of it; we actually do like quite a few things, but they are either likely out of the norm or things we came to like later. Kids would love it because they would relate to our distaste for food that just plain looks nasty or feels funny in the mouth. Adults who are picky would relate to why we are so picky in the first place.

The character arcs would be interesting; maybe there are foods we end up liking after all after actually tasting it, but the entertainment would be in our reaction and resistance to something that either looks or actually tastes nasty without already being weird.

And in the end, there's ice cream. A nice reward for trying! >;)

19 thelarmis   ~  Oct 21, 2011 6:29 pm

[18] dude, this is *perfect*!!! we've gotta do it.

and yeah: color, form, texture - that all plays into it. the main reason i really don't like things like doughnuts or cake...or cauliflower...

alright, i'm off to eat curry, papadum, naan & basmati rise! : )

20 RIYank   ~  Oct 21, 2011 8:05 pm

Right, donuts, cake, and cauliflower. Those are the three obvious food items to put in a category together. Maybe you were Indian in a past life. (I know our people don't believe in past lives, but Indians do and that's what matters.)

I love papadam and those things. But it is really, really weird that you don't eat apples and pears. When I eat those things I feel like they are the food that humans are supposed to eat.

This evening I think I ate at least as much roasted garlic as I'd eaten all together before tonight. It was a memorable experience. Also artichokes. I wish Chyll Will had been there!

21 Chyll Will   ~  Oct 21, 2011 8:18 pm

[20] You'd have preferred my sister's company; she's the garlic freak. Artichokes are wasted on me; better ship those to the Ded Sox dugout with a bottle of zinfandel... also red, of course...

22 Chyll Will   ~  Oct 21, 2011 8:19 pm

[22] Okay, maybe a case. I'm thinking they need as much class as they can get >;)

23 RIYank   ~  Oct 21, 2011 8:49 pm

They only like Popeye's chicken and, well, the first report was beer, but then it turned out it was Bud Lite.

24 kenboyer made me cry   ~  Oct 21, 2011 11:53 pm

Thelarmis, didn't your mother cut an apple into sections when you were like three years old?

Have you ever had a banana? How about peanut butter? I remember some posts where you do eat pizza. Does the texture of the cheese throw you off?

Can you eat chicken on the bone? How about lobster? Any other seafood?

I know this is only opinion, but there is nothing that defines fall, like that first perfect macintosh or macoun apple. It is a sensory experience of taste, feel, smell, sound, and sight.

I guess artists do it different.

25 thelarmis   ~  Oct 22, 2011 2:18 am

[24] nope, she didn't. i was more picky then!

i actually had a banana last week! my mom was here visiting, bought some and one was leftover. it was good!

i LOVE peanut butter! pizza is a major food group to me. no lobster. never. no seafood, really. tuna every now and then...

a quirky artist - i am definitely guilty!

26 thelarmis   ~  Oct 22, 2011 2:20 am

[20] this made me to laughing!

[21] i am with you on artichokes, my friends. can we add olives and broccoli to that? yucksville!

oh, and RI - i'm not a berry guy. blue, black, red, pinstriped...

27 thelarmis   ~  Oct 22, 2011 2:22 am

[24] forgot about the bird. i LOVE the bird. i'd wither away without it. growing up, i always ate chicken on the bone. i still do sometimes, but i definitely prefer it off the bone and cut up.

i had a chicken curry dish tonight with carrots & potatoes. it was almost as lovely as the woman sitting across from me! ; )

28 thelarmis   ~  Oct 22, 2011 2:23 am

RI - i think you'd come up with the best, funniest, most clever name for the food show Chyll & I are gonna do. have at it!
