flist friday: f is for food  
As you know I am Italian, so good food is pretty important in my life...

Like, I honestly get upset when I go to an Italian restaurant in the US and I order spaghetti and I see that watery thing appearing on front of me, or when I order a pizza and the crust taste like nothing because there is no salt in it!

So here some questions about food...


- Do you prefer sweet or savory?
- What is your favorite kind of cousine/what is your least favorite?
- Top 5 of your favorite foods / Top 5 least favorite foods.
- Taste changes: What did you like now that you didn't like when you were a kid?


- Do you prefer sweet or savory?
As a kid I was all about savory, but after the crazy diet that made me lost half of my weight and put me in a borderline situation, I started to appreciate sweets as well... but I tend not to indulge myself if not once every 2 weeks.

- What is your favorite kind of cousine/what is your least favorite?
I like real italian food... But now that I'm in the States I find that my favorite is now Japanese Food! When Eric an I go out we almost every time go to eat sushi. My least favorite is Indian.... I tried it a couple of times but I just don't like it! :(

- Top 5 of your favorite foods / Top 5 least favorite foods.
FAVORITE:
1 Focaccia Genovese
2 Pesto
3 Salad with Romaine/Tomatoes/Avocado/Feta/Homemade Crutons (with olive oil as dressing)
4 Porcini Mushrooms
5 Stracchino Cheese

LEAST FAVORITE
1 Anything with Vinegar/Balsamic Vinegar
2 Apples and Pears
3 Eggs (by themselves not as part of baked goods)
4 Red Meat
5 Spinach

- Taste changes: What did you like now that you didn't like when you were a kid?
When I was little I absolutely hate having to eat Minestrone (alla Genovese... which is not as watery as the Minestrone other people knows and it contains Pesto) I didn't like veggies so much. But then I stopped eating, because I wanted to get thin and the best thing to put in my stomach that was low in calories were vegetables. I started eating salad at lunch and boiled mashed vegetables in the evening and I started to like it... I still eat salad every day at lunch and soup or yogurt in the evening, but I tend not to starve myself counting the calories! :D

I wish you all a great weekend, if you go eat out I hope you'll go get something that's in your top 5 list! <3

Oh my goodness, I love food <3

I like both sweet and savory, but not at the same time.

I love Italian food and Japanese food - I've also been delving into Indian, Korean and Vietnamese cuisine, and they are unique and tasty.

My favorite foods are: sushi, pizza, pasta, salad (especially with red apple balsamic vinegar), and chocolate.

My least favorite are: liver, onions, jalapenos, spinach, and bleu cheese DX

I found that I didn't like cucumbers when I was little, but now I love them, :3

Oh gosh liver it's the worst...

I can have your blue cheese and you can have my cucumbers <3

- Do you prefer sweet or savory?
Completely depends on the day.
If it's a bad day tho, I tend to reach for sweet.

- What is your favorite kind of cousine/what is your least favorite?
I love Mexican, Thai, and Indian. Not a huge fan of Greek, but that's mostly because of the olive, cause I hate olives and they are in everything.

- Top 5 of your favorite foods / Top 5 least favorite foods.
Fave: French Toast, Shepherd's Pie, Red Curry, Huevos Rancheros, Burritos
Lease Fave: Mushrooms, Shrimp, Olives, Coffee (I'm counting it as food), Seafood (yes I mentioned Shrimp already, but that's the worst...this is the rest)

- Taste changes: What did you like now that you didn't like when you were a kid?
Brussel sprouts, spinach, curry, spicy food, messy food, chili, pancakes
Ery-chanerychan86 on February 10th, 2017 10:07 pm (UTC)
I am attracted to sweets only when I'm about to et my period (like now I would ill for some cupcakes LOL!

Mexican is SO GOOD! I love Chips, Guac and Salsa <3
~*Suzy Q*~blakmagjick on February 10th, 2017 10:24 pm (UTC)
I love guac...there is a Mexican market close to my house that sells REALLY good guac!

Ooh nom nom nom I love food, have to participate.

- Do you prefer sweet or savory?
A balance of both! I cook both and enjoy both.

- What is your favorite kind of cousine/what is your least favorite?
I eat a really broad range of food and cuisines. I love Asian food best, though. Thai and Indian probably top the list.

- Top 5 of your favorite foods / Top 5 least favorite foods.
Favourites: SO HARD I LOVE SO MUCH FOOD. Um, no. I actually am sitting here trying to think about this too much. I'm not choosing favourites among my children.
Least favourites: Peas, olives, all seafood, aniseed products, fennel.

- Taste changes: What did you like now that you didn't like when you were a kid?
I used to hate pumpkin but now I love it. Especially roasted.

Do you prefer sweet or savory?
I prefer sweet, to be honest. However, I like combining sweet and savory together, making a perfect balance of the two (like dipping french fries in Wendy's Frostys, for example).

What is your favorite kind of cuisine/what is your least favorite?
Japanese has been my favorite cuisine for a long while. I also eat a lot of Italian-esque foods (pasta, pizza, etc.)

Top 5 of your favorite foods / Top 5 least favorite foods.
Favorites: Pizza, pasta, gyoza, chocolate, and cornbread stuffing (from Hometown Buffet, RIP.) Least favorite: Bacon, chili, cauliflower, coffee anything (I'm allergic), and pie.

Taste changes: What did you like now that you didn't like when you were a kid?
Honestly? Pizza. I have a memory of trying it once as a kid but immediately hated it, and I didn't eat it for a long while after that. It wasn't when I was in junior high when they offered pizza during lunch when I tried it and I suddenly loved it. Alternatively, the kind of thing that I used to like before but now I don't is soda. I was addicted to soda all throughout junior high and high school, but realizing how unhealthy it was for me I stopped, went cold turkey. I never went back to drinking it. I even tried a sip of one once after the fact and I cannot stand the taste of it.

- Do you prefer sweet or savory?
Savory 99% of the time.

- What is your favorite kind of cousine/what is your least favorite?
I don't think I can pick just one! The only food I really don't like is bad food - overcooked, bland, fatty for the sake of being fatty (and not for the sake of being delicious).

- Top 5 of your favorite foods / Top 5 least favorite foods.
Favorites: Pizza, peanut butter, bacon, cheeseburger, steak
Least Favorite: Broccoli, olives, artichokes, mushrooms, Crisco (I knew someone who used to cook with that garbage and it was like trying to eat motor oil or something)

- Taste changes: What did you like now that you didn't like when you were a kid?

I think I like vegetables way more than I did as a kid (save broccoli). Sometime in college, I finally had a rare steak and realized I hated steak all those years because my parents would cook it to death.
Meredith: Teal'c - sg-1xfirefly9x on February 11th, 2017 04:51 am (UTC)
Sweet and savoury - it depends on my mood.

My fav is Italian, Japanese, or Mexican. And least favourite is Thai.

Top 5 foods: Pasta, pizza, sushi (prawn/avo or crumbed chicken/avo are the best), pavlova, pretty much anything that has mushroom & spinach in it.

Least fav foods: Sun-dried tomatoes, gorgonzola, jerky, liver, kidney.

Taste changes: I like olives now (on pizza or with something, not so much by themselves), and pickled cucumbers.

Eleonora: misc/cakeseleblack on February 11th, 2017 03:45 pm (UTC)
MMmhh a meme about food! *likey likey*
I LOVE sushi too! It's like a drug! I don't eat it often though because of its cost...

- Do you prefer sweet or savory? I am a fan of everything when it comes to food, but my heart will always belong to sweets.
- What is your favorite kind of cousine/what is your least favorite? Italian cuisine is above all, but I like to experiment, so Japanese, Chinese, Greek, Mexican and Indian food are all welcome. I can't say what my least favourite one is tho... I haven't tried anything which I didn't like :D
- Top 5 of your favorite foods
1) Pizza
2) Sushi
3) Zeppole
4) Cheesecake
5) Lasagna
Top 5 least favorite foods.
1) Tripe
2) Stockfish
3) Turnip leaves
4) Raisins
5) Garlic
- Taste changes: What did you like now that you didn't like when you were a kid?
I used to be a real pain in the ass, I wouldn't eat any vegetables (nor minestrone!) and even "normal" stuff I would eat only in a particular way, e.g. no minced meat in the sugo, only certain kinds of cheese and fish, and so on. The more my parents tried to force me, the worst it got. In time I just learned to at least try and taste everything and by the time I was 20 I LOVED food and there's nothing I wouldn't eat or try... it's funny how life is... I actually had a hard time finding 5 foods I don't like!

(So you're like the luckiest kids in the world to have PESTO in your minestrone and you didn't even eat it!? Bad, bad girl. :P)

- Do you prefer sweet or savory?
Savory. I'm not a big sweets person, though I do sometime crave it.

- What is your favorite kind of cousine/what is your least favorite?
I'd probably have to go with Italian for my favorite. Not sure on a least favorite...I feel like there's been at least one dish in every cuisine I've tried that I've liked.

- Top 5 of your favorite foods / Top 5 least favorite foods.
Favorites: pizza, potatoes, pasta, filet mignon, beef stroganoff
Least: sushi, portabello mushrooms, olives, enchiladas, jalapenos

- Taste changes: What did you like now that you didn't like when you were a kid?
Lobster is the first one that comes to mind. I'm sure there's others though that I'm just not thinking of, though.

Saaaaavory. I love salt. I like sweets well enough, but the only things I tend to go nuts about are frozen. Like I will eat a ridiculous amount of ice cream or sorbet or whatever.

Italian/Mexican are tied. I...honestly don't know what my least favorite is. I struggle a little with Greek because I don't like olives and olives are EVERYWHERE in Greek food, but I still find things I love in Greek cuisine.

Top Five Favorites, in no particular order:
Everything bagels.
Mangoes and blueberries.
The perfect salty bliss of plain potato chips.
Sushi.
Pasta.

Top Five Least Favorites, in no particular order:
Olives.
Cottage cheese.
Water chestnuts.

...I can't think of anything else I greatly dislike. I'm not wild about jalapenos on things, but I like them in salsa and stuff.

As a child I didn't care for lasagna because of the ricotta cheese. I came around though. I also didn't like avocados! Now I love avocado.

- Do you prefer sweet or savory?
Both, it just depends on my mood and what I've been eating recently! If I eat a lot of sweet food I always want something salty.

- What is your favorite kind of cousine/what is your least favorite?
My favorite is Indian food, haha! I just love all the flavors and spices. My least favorite is Hawaiian - it's too salty and not flavorful enough. Otherwise I like most types of foods.

- Top 5 of your favorite foods / Top 5 least favorite foods.
Favorites: sushi, pasta, various types of Asian hotpot, French fries, mangoes... these are just the ones that occurred to me, haha. Least favorites: bell peppers, Brussels sprouts, beets, eggplant, ribs.

- Taste changes: What did you like now that you didn't like when you were a kid?
Cauliflower is the only thing I used to hate but now like.

Silvia: foodsilviarambles on February 12th, 2017 03:28 pm (UTC)
STRACCHINO! Stracchino must be one of my favourite foods, I can find it in London but it's crazy expensive...still, every now and then I cave in and splurge. I definitely prefer savoury to sweet, so it's my special treat!
Driver Picks the Musicbatmarg on February 21st, 2017 05:59 pm (UTC)
- Do you prefer sweet or savory?
Definitely savory

- What is your favorite kind of cousine/what is your least favorite?
French is my favorite. My least favorite is a "country restaurant." Now don't get me wrong: legit Southern food is some of the tastiest stuff ever made. However, those buffet places with grease-drenched friend chicken & veggies that were just dumped out of a can & heated up w/o any seasoning, are disgusting.

- Top 5 of your favorite foods / Top 5 least favorite foods.
Favorites: (1) cheese...like all of it (2) broccoli (3) onions (4) bacon (5) potatoes since they are delish prepared so many different ways

Least favorites: (1) raisins (2) velveeta or any other faux cheese product (3) pumpkin [as a dessert, i like it as a squash] (4) ketchup (5) coconut. I loved it as a kid, but I think I overdid it back then & it turned me off it. Same with ketchup actually
