    I don't abide that Dr Oetker Pizza Ristorante advert fork nonsense where she takes a little triangle smaller than a dorito on her fork.

    Saying you've bought "Chicken" and presenting "Chicken Roll" (The circular processed chicken-esque meat that's like 89 percent water or something)...

    OR TURKEY HAM.

    Turkey ham is REVOLTING, my mum used to give me it EVERY DAY in my pack lunches as a kid, until I became old enough to make my own and had cheese almost every day instead

    I believe it is supposed to be "turkey that is cooked to taste like ham"
    Now that I eat ham I can say it tastes nothing like ham :| A food crime indeed!

    I had this debate before. I was like, "Is turkey ham fake ham made of turkey, or some kind of turkey-and-ham reformed concoction of the two?" as I discovered it contained quite a low percentage of turkey. So I simply assumed it had to be composed of ham, too. Well, no. It's just made of a little bit of turkey, a crapload of chemicals, water and some kind of weird agents that make it appear to gel together into viable "cooked meat" format.

    Needless to say regardless of the outcome, Turkey Ham is an abomination.

    And can anyone remember the advert where the woman eats like a huge folded wad of Turkey Ham and looks like she's in utter bliss?

    getting a delicious pasta meal and then DROWNING IT IN PARMESAN. I like parmesan, but seriously? Why not just eat the slab on it's own?

    also, when people spit out food because 'they don't like it' and then retch/pull a face/etc. Instant rage.

    This is annoying when people are doing it because they're just being overdramatic, but I know with me if I REALLY don't like something I start retching entirely involuntarily and spit it out. It's horrible, but I can't help it :/

    If you genuinely can't stand something, spit it into your hand etc, that's not so bad; I'd far rather you did THAT than not try it at all and say "I hate it." The fact you tried it is enough for respect from me.

    It's the ones that say "I hate all fish. I hate all veg" when they just outright refuse to try it - now THAT is a crime.

    My friend "hates all fish" - so I was like, all of them, really? They all taste so different. So she was like "no seriously, I will never ever ever eat ANY type of fish. Or seafood. Or anything containing fish. I wont/don't like it." Oh, which fish have you tried?
    "er....none."

    or "I hate all meat".

    Yes, there are people who are veggie for purely this reason and nothing else

    Does it matter though? I mean, if they don't want to eat meat - because they have decided they don't like the taste, or the texture etc - does it really matter? :confused:

    Fair enough that 'I hate all meat' is a generalised statement and the likelihood is that they haven't tried all meats to make that judgement. But, if they have decided not to eat it, why does that bother anyone else?

    I hear ya.

    "I hate all Seafood".

    Oh, really? What an absurd concept. ALL... SEA FOOD?

    Would you balk if I mentioned I hated... All Landfood?

    Consider quite HOW MUCH that consists of. Then think of how much more of the earth is covered in water than land.

    Yeah. ALL SEAFOOD. Pah!

    I hate the people who go on Come Dine With Me and spend the whole time listing off all the foods they DON'T like. "Don't eat veg, don't eat fish, can't STAND prawns, can't have spicy food (by which they mean anything spicier than a Korma)..." and they sit there at the table with this disgusted look on their face the whole time, like they're being force-fed a kangaroo testicle on I'm a Celebrity...
    What are you doing going on food programme? Did you think it was called 'Come And Eat a McDonalds Happy Meal With Me'?

    Hahaha, I agree with the Come Dine With Me thing, flo, although I understand why they do it (they're obviously chosen for the greatest TV conflict/entertainment value) but it simultaneously winds me up.

    See back in the beginning of that show, it was far more of a cooking show, with Dave Lamb actually narrating on the cookery. Now it's like some kind of cooking panto with the wildest, wackiest bunch of people they could find, and sarky-comment-a-palooza from Davey Lamb!
