SO. I like to eat many different foods. The list of foods that I do like to eat is vast and varied. There are however, some foods that I don’t like to eat. This list, when laid out, can be a bit surprising considering the things that I am willing to eat and enjoy.
Sensibly my main issue with nearly all of these foods is the taste. I don’t like the taste. This makes sense.
The other issue I have with some of these foods is that they looks SO TASTY AND APPETISING. So tasty. And yet they are not.
Basically, I don’t like food that looks like it should taste good.
First up? Olives. Now, I like olive oil. Olive oil is great. It’s nice to cook with. It’s nice to dip bread into and eat. It’s nice to drizzle over my vegetables or fish.
Olives though? EUGH. And yet? They look so good, round and shiny and perfect. Even the texture is good (and texture is important with food). I don’t even mind the smell.
However, when I bite into one and the flavour spreads across my tongue? MASSIVE FAIL. And I want to like them so badly.

- Liverpool and it’s Chinese Children – At the end of the Second World War hundreds of Chinese seamen married to women in Liverpool were forced out of the UK. They left behind them their wives and their children. Few of the women were ever to see their men again. The children grew up never knowing their fathers.

- Mixed Britannia – Faculty of Arts and Human Sciences| London South Bank University – Over the past few decades, people and couples from mixed racial backgrounds in Britain have become increasingly visible in the public eye, and there is still a tendency to herald their presence as part of a new multicultural phenomenon – what has been dubbed the rise of 'Beige' or 'Brown Britain.'
Yet, mixed race people and couples have a long presence in Britain, as evidenced not only by the prolific debates about the implications of interracial relationships and 'mulattoes' and 'half-caste' children in the late-eighteenth and early-twentieth centuries but also, as we increasingly see, through their own accounts.
