I think everyone has that one food that they hate more than anything. For me, that used to be buffalo sauce. I just didn’t get it. I thought it was too messy to eat in company and the sauce was such an unnatural florescent orange that I thought it could potentially be poison. I wasn’t exactly a staple in the sports bar scene, so I could usually avoid the sauce. Then, I started hanging out and eating dinner with Ray Hancock, an avid buffalo fan. I would have tiny tastes of Ray’s meals and forever vowel to never eat another bite of buffalo chicken (over and over). I thought it was a lost cause.
One evening Ray invented Buffalo Chicken Rice (recipe coming soon!), and guess what… IT WAS DELICIOUS! A few months later, we came across a recipe for pulled buffalo chicken sandwiches, which I instantly fell in love with.
I don’t know if something clicked or my taste buds rapidly matured, but I’m pretty happy about it. Do you have any foods like that? Or am I just a crazy weirdo?
