Celebrity Chefs Reveal the One Food They Can't Stand
The Barefoot Contessa has a strong stance on the world's most controversial herb, cilantro. "I just can't stand it," she told PEOPLE during her book tour in January.
The Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives host has a well-documented aversion to eggs, which came about after a particularly jarring experience he had as a 10-year-old.
One might not expect the man who eats everything on Bizarre Foods to have any food hang ups, but Zimmern's are actually fairly commonplace. "I can’t eat walnuts," he told PEOPLE. "Won’t eat ‘em, can’t stand ‘em. Raw cookie dough. Won’t eat it. Can’t stand it. Oatmeal. Won’t eat, can’t stand it. I love fermented walrus anus, so I get to not like some things."
"I hate, abhor, loathe, and recoil at the sight of bananas," the Food Network's Pioneer Woman wrote on her blog—ironically, on her recipe for Bananas Foster.
Okay, so it's no surprise that someone with Bourdain's palate doesn't totally embrace airplane food. "No one has ever felt better after eating plane food," he told Bon Appétit. "I think people only eat it because they’re bored. I don’t eat on planes. I like to arrive hungry."
The Good Eats host is not here for artificial truffle flavor. "Truffle oil sucks," he once proclaimed to Grub Street, adding on Twitter that it "ain't got no reason."
The outspoken British chef has made no secret about where he stands on the great pineapple pizza debate. "You don’t put f—ing pineapple on pizza," he declared on The Nightly Show.
