There are foods / drinks that took me awhile to acquire a taste. Examples include anchovies in my pasta sauces, oysters, blue cheese (although this didn’t take me long and can now eat the stinkiest blue cheese plain as a snack), and vodka martinis. I went through a phase where I tried to be more […]
