"The problem with the Baked Beans you get in France is that the beans actually taste like beans. And to make it worse the tomato sauce in there tastes of tomatoes too..."

Mark Balsom, speaking in Brittany, last century (little improvement since)

I'm afraid I'm, to put it mildly, a bit of a pain when it comes to food. When I first went over to see my now wife Christina she asked me for a list of things I don't eat. I had to explain it would be easier to send her a list of things I do - much shorter! One of these days I'll hopefully grow out of it, but it's not looking promising. In the meantime the list is here as a reference, with my apologies. It could be worse, mind, I could be a vegetarian. Hopefully you'll be pleasantly surprised by some of the things here, but more likely you'll just be deeply disturbed!
