Foods you were a late adopter of

• tomatoes - only got into them at about age 22/23. Have them with everything now, obviously.

• mushrooms - in the last 6 months (I’m 32 next week!). I’ve gone from detesting them to having them for basically every meal.

• Olives - a classic this one, isn’t it? I hated them ever since my dad got me to try one by telling me it was a grape as a child and being fucking outraged. Made myself like them in my late teens by trying one every couple of weeks. Adored now of course.

My dad made me try everything. I remember being quite young and him making me try oysters in front of a lot of people at a dinner party as some form of entertainment

genius move tbh. if you like the oysters, you look like a posh grown up. if you don’t, well, its still funny.

Oh loads. There are the foods that I’d never eaten until I went to university (eg curry, chinese, mexican food, thai food etc), but then also the foods that my girlfriend has introduced me to over the past couple of years, especially fruit and vegetables, eg mangoes and pomelo.

Because tastes change and you might like it now.

With food? Doubt it, sure when you are a kid you have more tastebuds and everything tastes different by my age nothing is going to change

Same for me with mushrooms. Always thought they were icky and had literally never made them for myself until the other day after watching Phantom Thread and now I’ve had them 5 times in a week.
