I tried a ham, cream cheese and pineapple sandwich at uni once. I could kind of see the thinking behind it - ham and cream cheese is good, ham and pineapple on pizza is good (not convinced about it in a sandwich), but all three together was just disgusting.
Never, ever again!

We could never be friends.

Also do you resent your parents for not teaching you good table manners?
I have impeccable table manners, I just choose to be a little unconventional.

Overcooking ANYTHING (steak, vegitables, pork, even chicken).

People who are really picky about food, especially healthy or exotic food.

People who wont try something once ("I know I wont like it").

Ketchup - its not disgusting its just a horriblly overpowering taste that ruins good cooking. I would genuinely kick someone out of a dinner party for asking for ketchup.

Mayonaise on anything other than chips (or in tunagoo and a few other specific concepts). Especially salad - who the **** does that?

People who ask for beer with my well cooked meal despite me having picked out a perfect, complimentary wine. Seriously **** off back to MaccyDs

In fact, anyone who doesnt drink wine with a good meal. What a waste.

People who deliberately pick something cheap on the menu then make a big deal out of splitting the bill (and, generally, forget tip or tax).

Vegans (I can just about tolerate vegetarians as long as they keep it quiet, though my favourite veges are the ones who will occasionally eat meat at a dinner party so as not to ruin it for everyone else... no you cant bring your own food you stupid ****)

Anyone who doesnt like a fryup when they are hungover

PEOPLE WHO CANT USE CUTLERY PROPERLY. Seriously get out of my house and never speak to me again for the rest of your life.

Anyone who doesnt believe in seasoning.

People who throw away food before its gone off because they are afraid of germs.

Anyone who eats fastfood regularly. twice a year, while ****faced, is your limit. Kebabs while drunk excepted.
what a plonker. are you 55? And I don't think you've got any worries about vegans coming over to your house...we're normally quite a tolerant open-minded lot, but we generally have a ****-ometer and learn to avoid people like you who thinks it's amusing to wave steak in our faces...

I take it you don't like pears and stilton then? Or cranberry sauce and turkey? Or apple sauce and salty pork? Or bacon and maple syrup? Or salty peanuts in chocolate bars? Or lamb tagine? Or chocolate coated pretzels? Or prosciutto and cantaloupe melon? Or strawberrys with balsamic vinegar? or chinese five spice?


Some of the best flavour combinations ever discovered mix sweet and savoury flavours together. This unnatural obsession with dividing flavours into sweet and savoury is a rather provincial british one.
all thosee things you mentioned sound vile. i really can't stand sweet food mixed in my meal at all. saying that i did think i was pretty unusual in my hatred for it

Apple sauce with roast pork works, and although I don't think I've ever tried proscuitto with canteloupe melon it does sound like it would also work. Nothing wrong with some raisins in a lamb tagine, either. Not sure about the salted peanuts with chocolate, though saying that I dislike salty nuts on their own anyway let alone with chocolate as well. Same thing with the pears with Stilton - I hate Stilton anyway so wouldn't like it any more or less with pear added to it.

I'm pretty sure I'll get over the trauma. I just hope they choke on a chicken bone.



Back on topic - I don't know why anyone would put sweetcorn on pizza, just seems wrong.

I actually agree with about 3/4s of this, although I'm not quite so militant about it.

Baked beans and gravy on the same plate. :nooo:

And the mayo-tuna sandwich, which is essentially 90% mayo.

Posh ham n melon is a wedding starter staple. You never had a snickers bar? They're quite salty.

Tomato Ketchup with Mashed Potato or ANY Roast.

WHY ruin such culinary effort!
My brothers and dad all do this, it's like WHYYYYYYY??
All you need to add to it is salt or butter! Ketchup RUINS an otherwise lovely meal!

Another one I've experienced was just this past Christmas, and it wound me up really badly.

At Christmas, I received a box of Signature Selection Hotel Chocolat chocolates; now, these are pretty damned premium stuff (I think they work out like £1-£1.50 PER CHOCOLATE) so they're very coveted by me... but hey, it's Christmas, right? So I crack open this £25-£30 box of chocolates and offer one to my mum, dad, and sister JUST as my Aunt visits. Clearly I'm not going to pass out chocolates to some people and not others, so my Aunt (who, can I just state for the record, is even more of a total commoner than my immediate family, which says a lot considering our usual meals were special offers from Farmfoods most days) was offered one too. She picked out &quot;whatever one has caramel in it&quot; and took a big bite out of it, grimaced, and said &quot;oh, that's rotten, that one&quot;, throwing the remainder away, immediately snatching the opportunity to look at the little chocolate menu and grabbing a different variety, to which she had the same reaction and said &quot;Tommy, what kind of chocolate are they, they taste rancid!&quot;

This alone would've been enough to send me over the edge, but managing to salvage about two thirds of my box from the clutches of the &quot;I'm going to sit here and take a bite out of every one in the box and spit it out like a toddler&quot; brigade, I put the lid back on and put them through onto the kitchen counter. After exchanging gifts, my mum enquired where my young 8-year old cousin was (who had come with my Aunt), and I went through into the kitchen, to see the greedy little pig munching through my chocolates - and I mean, munching. You know in cartoons when you see them not even finishing what's in their mouth before grabbing another? That. With Hotel Chocolat Signature Collection chocolates.

I will never forget the number 8, because it was literally, the number of chocolates remaining in the box I got to keep to myself.
Oh my dear God.
I would need therapy if that happened to me D:
Reminds me of when my cousin came around whilst I was at school and mum let him play with my WATERCOLOURS and he squeezed all the brightest colours from THE MIDDLE OF THE TUBE and squeezed out SO MUCH PAINT and then didn't even use most of it. :nooo: Not really food related but still the same sense of agony, I think.

Eating meat . . .

Please don't flame me.

I can't think of anything so weird that I'd call it a food crime. I didn't used to like it when people rejected the sealed part of a roast (you know, the slightly tougher bit around the outside) but it just meant more for me. That was before I stopped eating roasts, ofc.

I like ketchup but there is a time, place and acceptable quantity. A thin layer for flavor or a pot to dip, but don't douse ANYTHING in it! It's rank in large amounts and quite spoils the food.

I hate it when food reaches my plate that's never seen salt, pepper, herbs or spices. All food needs some sort of seasoning and leaning what/how much is one of the arts of cooking.

I have some weird habits with my food - I'm sure I do things that freak other people out a bit. Rasins and rice crispies in porridge? YES PLEASE!

Oh, big annoyance - throwing food away before the sell-by date, let alone before the use-by date, unless it has gone off prematurely. Good food is good food and unless you have a compromised immune system (or it's a very special case) you'll be FINE. The opposite is also true - I hate people that buy something and then let it fester and go mouldy.

Oversteaming/boiling veg. Boiled veg is generally rank anyway but overboiling it until it is totally impotent and flavorless? Why!?

Favourite greasy pizza topping? Pineapple, mushroom and garlic butter. But only for nasty, take-away pizzas.

EDIT - yay, I got negged for this!

EDIT 2 - that wasn't an invitation to keep negging me.

I remember this guy in high school buying a slice of pizza with beans in the canteen. Really odd combination.

Sweetcorn on pizza works.
