I will not eat anything fishy, Allergy, and even the smell of fish makes me feel ill. Just as well I don't live by the sea.

Veal, Foie gras, because of the particularly cruel way those foods are produced... being a meat eater I have enough guilt as it is.

Aubergine and raw apple now make me ill, though they never used to. Tahini makes me want to retch, though I enjoy hummus.

Love cheese, curry, garlic. And as an occasional treat, unicorn burgers, or wafer thin slices of pale swan braised in nightingale's tears.

Quote:raw apple now make me ill

For many years I ate bananas then suddenly the made me feel nauseous so haven't tried one since.
Rhubarb and gooseberries, I had them when I was a child and hated them. I could write a whole spoil on that, maybe sometime...
Desiccated coconut.
Battenburg cake made the cheap way with benzaldehyde (you may need to google that Wink) infused rubber rather than proper marzipan made from real almomds.
Cheap and nasty meat products.
And let's not forget junk food. Well, actually, let's...

In my case, over the last few years I have developed an odd 'condition'. Whereas I can still happily eat bananas and apples (and do), in both cases about 15 minutes after doing so, I start burping like mad. Doesn't happen with other fruit, just those two.

Nothing - I eat pretty much everything that is generally considered food.

Sweet fizzy drinks never, I avoid food with added sugar or salt, junk food, fast food and try to avoid processed food as far as possible. I love pizzas but now never eat them as they have far too much salt.

Many years ago my mother asked me what we were having for dinner. I told her it was a curry. She said, "I'm not eating that foreign muck!" so I asked what she was going to be eating. Her answer, "Spag Bol!"

I had to leave rapidly or I'd have got a clip round the ear.

Reminds me of a conversation I heard on the bus years ago, as we were going through Newcastle. Lady behind us says 'Why all these foreign restaurants? Why can't people be satisfied with traditional English food like MacDonald's?'

I don't understand why there is so much aversion to curry. I just love a good curry.

It is usually heavily spiced so you cannot taste the component ingredients and I cannot stand the smell. Also it is often not very solid unlike a good meat and 2 veg. I do understand that there are better quality curry dishes which may well be OK but I have never been to an Indian restaurant and not willing to try based on the poor curries I have eaten which others at the time thought were good.

Salmon oysters & cabbage, spinach & similar.

Until 1998 I liked Salmon especially smoked salmon but I had a serious virus attack which lasted about 18 months (nothing to do with salmon) after that I could not eat salmon of any sort, just made me feel sick. Most white fish I like but have to be in the right mood. Really like prawns & anchovies.
Oysters because I never fancied them, but one day I was at the coast & bought a dozen oysters and really intended to give them a try raw.
They all looked good, when I opened the first one it was just a black slimy mass. The other 11 were ok and I rather warily fried them and ate them. Now, just not interested.
As far as cabbage is concerned 72 years ago when I was at primary school I was forced by the teacher to eat a big lump of over boiled cabbage, on a plate with a slice of what might have been beef? There was a caterpillar in it. Now I cannot even look at cooked cabbage or spinach. OK raw though.
