To be fair I have only ever learned to like seafood, it's never been something I really loved. But fresh fish right on the beach, and well cooked shellfish, converted me.

But I still can't get into cans of sardines and anchovies like pops loves. Even canned tuna and salmon is off the menu for me.

so much of what we consider “our taste” rely on being served properly cooked versions of the food in question. If your mom overcooked spaghetti by 5 mins, you probably would have avoided pasta for most of your life.

Disagree. If she overcooked her spaghetti for 5 mins, he'd probably avoid pasta that isn't overcooked by 5 mins. Much of our food preferences are shaped by what we grew up eating, especially when it comes to the culture we grew up in.

Prep is mucho important. I hate zucchini but grilled ... love the stuff.

It's the reason so many Italians are sheltered when it comes to food. Anything that isn't pasta, they freak out. (My dad)

Hey mamma is siciliana and cooks seafood better than anyone. Probably too much fish smell as a kid.

I've never budged on the melt. You're right on the money there. I was a lifelong skeptic that has been converted.

I think you’ll reconvert. Like I did with chicken McNuggets back in the day. Initially thought they were gross, then had them at the Skydome during a jays game when I was starving and just went with what my friend got because he’s such a McNuggets fan. Had it a few more times after that without loving it until on the last try I was like, why the fuck am I eating this garbage?

ha, the old man was from Halifax and used to stink up the kitchen regularly -- I swear that is the reason I don't like seafood all that much.

I'm well aware of the goings on in Politics.

You're just dying to hear my take on it. So sorry.

My parents cooked all sorts of shit improperly and it's the only way they eat it. Same story as my aunt/uncles. Nothing as sinful as overcooked pasta but still.

fish smell isn’t supposed to be overpowering; that’s a sign of lack of freshness

food transportation/distribution has improved a lot since then

My wife grew up with tomato paste as the sauce. Not even seasoned. No lie.

I was amazed when I met my future in-laws and the lack of cuisine. Pork chops and potato family.

A lot of high end sushi restaurants actually prefer and use semi smelly, less fresh fish. The argument is that fresh fish actually has almost zero flavor.
