    Default Does anyone else 'experiment' on friends and family?

    My DP insists he is "allergic" to mushrooms and they cause him to break out in hives, it wasn't until he ordered mushroom sauce with his steak one night that I realised he actually wasn't and just didn't like mushrooms in things. I know put them in most dishes and he's never had a problem doesn't even know they are there so I was missing out on my mushroom fix for years for nothing I do however have an allergy to tomatoes (not tomato sauce though) and get stomach pains and very ill usually results in a stomach ulcer and I have had people put it in things to see whether I was lying or not it does cause me immense amounts of pain wish people would take it more seriously but because the result isn't instant like a full on anaphylactic reaction it doesn't seem to be seen as quite so serious.

    Allergies are different. I would NEVER try to get someone to have something they were allergic to.

    The tomato thing with my DH is just something he 'doesn't like'. I may be sceptical, but I really can't see how people can be so sure and so passionate about not liking something they've never tried or, in DH's case, they last tried when they were 3.

    It just makes me sad because bolognaise is my favourite, and I'm not allowed to have it, lest our precious cooking utensils come in contact with tomato (oh the horror!!!).

    Agreed! My son is allergic to tomatoes and capsicum, a family member who thought they knew better fed it to him, and then wondered why his lips started swelling and he started breaking out in hives everywhere! I would never mess around with allergies.

    I don't like plastic cheese. Hubby hid 1/4 of a slice under tuna on a cracker. Oh I noticed. I didn't like it before and I didn't like it after. I don't get how it affects people if others don't like certain things?
    Hubby is adamant he does not like mango and avocado. I've never thought to trick him, he just doesn't eat it when I do. No skin off my nose?

    If someone tells me they get a reaction from something I take them at face value and don't give it to them. I think its disrespectful to 'test' them and potentially dangerous.

    I'd be really upset if DH did that to me.

    I can actually tell if people put the water in my coffee first, it tastes bitter... DH does it all the time.

    My Dad is Eurasian and adores rice, however he thinks the westernised way of putting cream/sugar etc into rice to make creamy rice pudding is almost sacriligous to rice and we have had to hear over the years how he wouldn't put cream and sugar in potatos because that would be sacriligious to potato lovers! all (tongue in cheek stuff).

    Anyhow, for about 5 years now, my DH has tricked my Dad into eating creamy rice by telling him that he has made my Dad his 'Nanna's special creamy rice recipe' which has been handed down the generations etc. Without wanting to offend/upset my Dh and his beloved Nanna, my Dad happily obliges and eats the creamy rice and even remarks how delicious it is!

    Little does my Dad know, it is my DH buying cans of creamy rice, pouring them into a casserole dish, sprinkling with some nutmeg and 'cooking' in the oven!
    To this day he still has no idea and still happily eats it when offered by my Dh as he is thinking he is eating this beloved creamy rice recipe and doesn't want to offend!
