Often our relationship with certain foods developed from events that occurred in our childhood. For example did you learn to love cold lemonade whilst sitting in a porch swing at your grandmother's house. Or perhaps you were made to sit at the dinner table until you ate every last brussel sprout on your plate and hence despise them now. Photo courtesy of freedigitalphotos.net and Marcus

Ooh, ouch. What a painful lesson to learn.
Thanks for your answer.
I must say I wasn't a big fan until I went to my mother-in-laws house and she made sandwiches with them. Thick bread, even thicker layer of butter and pilchards. All washed down with a mug of tea. Thanks for bringing back, a good memory for me!
In the UK I had Black pudding. It seemed quite dry. I can't say I will rush to have it again. For a kid to watch it, I could see why that would put you off, unless you're a vampire! :-)
Oh dear! My son had the same experience with spaghetti and meatballs. Even now, anytime I see a plateful, those memories come rushing back. Thanks for your answer.
I think many people don't like their food lumped together on a plate. To be fair, broccoli does look like little trees. I have never tried to grill broccoli! Thanks for answering.
