    best- amazing middle eastern cuisine including hummus w hashweh, armenian sausage, fattoush, garlic chicken, soft shell crab at a local hot spot

    worst- WE keep going to a friends where they love to cook...theyll make soup that take 12 hours, etc and everything is blander than bland literally tastes like hot water. I also find chain/franchise pizza GROSS...like pizza hut, little ceasers, dominos, etc GROSSES ME OUT just thinking about it

    I feel your pain Femme. We have friends who rate themselves as real 'foodies' because they make stuff they think is really 'out there' like sushi and asparagus dip. The reality is that they overcook everything, including veggies that are boiled into submission and then smothered in a disgusting white sauce. Meat is cooked to a crisp. And, shudder, they make their own wine which is truly the most disgusting thing I have ever tasted, and I have a pretty cast iron stomach. I think toilet cleaner would probably taste better. We dread going over there because we take a couple of bottles of drinkable wine which our hosts guzzle down and then we have to drink their homebrew shit. They think parsnip and beansprout wine is totally delicious so we have to agree while trying not to spontaneously gag/puke.

    THANK GOD Im not the only one who has dealt with these self-important "chefs" lol. I know exactly what youre talking about--these people too think their cooking is soooo exotic bc theyll make thai food and 12hr long sauces...the sauce tasted like baby food--sure it had homemade ingredients, but it had absolutely no seasonings.

    And speaking of "disgusting white sauce", they once made pork loin which they totally over cooked and then doused in some sort of alfredo-y concoction...the best part is there is NEVER a sufficient amount of food, so if I actually liked the crap they made, Id STILL need to grab real food otw home

    Ew, I feel really sorry for you both. Do you cook for them, and if so, what do you make? And what do they say? Do they notice the difference?

    I usually do something very simple but (hopefully) well executed with meat that's just done so you can actually taste it, steamed veggies that retain a little flavour and texture. Sauce, if any, is served separately. They are very appreciative but I don't think they can distinguish the difference. Of course, here in Oz it's kinda traditional when invited to dinner (unless it's a very formal affair) to 'bring a plate' so guests will bring maybe some canapes, or dip or maybe dessert. This means the 'foodies' will bring some foul concoction we are forced by politeness to eat and of course they also bring the Chateau Draino '98 too.

    How could somebody not tell the difference between perfectly steamed veggies & soggy ones? Overcooked veggies are disgusting.

    And, um, you were kidding when you said they make parsnip & beansprout wine, right?

    Best - Gyro and hummus Oh it was heaven

    Worst - bean burrito I grabbed from Taco Bell yesterday afternoon cause I wasnt really hungery but needed something in my tummy. I dont eat their meat anymore after reading a post about what grade of meat they use so I figure refried beans would be safe but it just was blah.
