That vile Parmesan. It's the most vomit-inducing stink I've ever smelled. Putrid. I don't like it either grin About the only thing I do dislike.

Yet I love a good Danish Blue ?

Hate:

However, I can eat all those things I hate, and have done on occasion, I don't find any food that disgusting that I couldn't eat it. But I definitely can't drink whisky or brandy, they just burn my throat and taste vile; I can't understand how anyone can drink them!

Can I ask Paddyanne what made you go back to eating a small amount of meat?
I haven’t eaten it since 2000 - F&M outbreak - although I do eat fish. I’m in a dilemma as it would be much easier to have a roast chicken with my husband now and again or a beef casserole, especially as he is ill and I cook meat for him. I’m sure I could get it from our local farm shop, but at the end of the day, it’s still a dead animal or bird.
