Isn't that quite small?

Like cheese. and I like fish.
and yet, I don't really eat a lot of either. There is nothing worse than bad fish. That horrible strong fishy taste is disgusting. But good fish is a real treat. I love Halibut, Fresh Tuna, really fresh cod and sea bass. But if it is even a bit less than very fresh, I cannot stand it.
Cheese is good too, but only in moderation, and I do get indigestion if I eat too much of it. But a good Brie, or a strong Somerset Cheddar with some good pickle is a joy.


Agree. The horrible strong fishy taste is one of the worst things in the world of food. I love fish. But eat 'bad fish' (e.g. cheap stuff out of a can) and you can be put off of it for a long time. I had salty 'new young herring' (a Dutch specialty) once, entirely prepared by an amateur, who cleaned, salted, etc. the fish.

After a courageous two bites I was near vomiting, and worse: I couldn't even make myself eat properly done young herrings for god knows how long.

Same thing happened with mackerel out of a tin can. I always was very partial to buy a whole mackerel (not expensive, and vaguely comparable to the eels of old, which are now very pricey); but the canned mackerel was near inedible. Had to recover for two years, I guess.
On the whole, I'd rather be in Wallenpaupack.

I'm lactose intolerant, but that hasn't stopped me from eating cheese most of the time. Good thing there are Lactaid pills available. I had some in my side salad at lunch just today. Love the stuff.

I like fish as well, but haven't had too much experience with it to be honest. I certainly can't cook it properly as I will overcook it every time, so it's wasted. When in restaurants, which is quite rare, I tend to order things that I can't do well at home. Fish would be included in that, but there's usually something on the menu I would appreciate more.

So, I haven't voted in the poll yet, but I guess I should go for the cheese option (since Footy ain't around).

No I will not give up either.
Two of my favorite things cheese and fish(I go to Maine every year so I include all seafood )

Both can be amazing and also can be the worse stuff in the world to eat.
Very picky about both but so many great cheeses of the world and same with seafood.
