We've had the good-natured discussion of what foods we'd never have in our kitchen, the ingrendients we'd never cook without, and our favorite ways to prepare our foods. We are truly blessed (or lucky) to live in a society that affords us the variety and wealth to choose what we eat, and to have it relatively quickly, and in good condition. In many cultures, this is not even a dream. What food do you undrerate a little, but without it, your culinary life would be a little less bright? And for what food are you most thankful? For me it's any fruits.
