Hi people! 🙂
Are there any food combinations you hate?
I think quite a few, but what comes to my mind right now is that I hate the combination of spicy with sweet. I love love love spicy food, spicy condiments etc. and I love a lot of sweet things as well, but together they taste gross. I hate things like chocolate with chilli, or sauces that are kind of both sweet and a little spicy, or some crisps are like that too, spicy with a bit of sweet-ish flavour, it’s yucky. If something is spicy, then I want it to be really spicy, and not something in-between. Similarly, there are probably even more things that are both spicy and sour/vinegary, especially crisps or sauces/ketchups. I really like things that are really really spicy, and when for example I want to buy a hot sauce for something, I know a couple that I know are really good, but when I buy something new that I haven’t tested before, chances are quite high that, instead of being spicy it’ll only be spicy-sour or spicy-sweet. My Mum dislikes spicy-vinegary things as well, generally some people say though that I’m weird, because lots of things aren’t spicy enough for me, even if they don’t contain any taste combinations like that, haha, so perhaps indeed my perception is different or something.
What’s the spiciest thing you’ve ever eaten?
Hmmmm… the spiciest thing? That’s a tricky one… because I’ve eaten so many spicy things, I love spicy things, and sometimes people say they’re so spicy that they’re uneatable, but I like them. I really can’t recall something that would be so spicy that I just couldn’t eat it, would choke or have red eyes or something. And, if I’m honest, I’d like to eat something like this once to feel how it is. I don’t know what’s wrong, whether I am sorta too immune to spicy things or people around me are too sensitive, but it just needs to be very very spicy for others to affect me at all. I can’t say I like ANYTHING spicy, I think there should be more to a dish to like it then just that it’s spicy or salty or sweet, but I like the vast majority of spicy things. But… um… let’s think… recently we had tortilla and my mum got a very hot sauce to it, something starting with Z, it was just… heavenly, I just loved it so much, and yeah, it was spicy, my Mum couldn’t ieat it, Zofijka couldn’t, Olek didn’t even try, only me and my Dad could and it felt very hot, but I hope there are more spicy things in the world, if not, that’s a pity, because I believe it still could be more spicy and it could be even more heavenly, I believe there are spicier things haha. How about you? 🙂
