What's your most favourite and least favourite food?
i eat almost anything, but I love fish and chips from the chippie with salt, vinegar and brown sauce. I also love rare steak. I don't have either very often so I think that's part of the appeal. I also love a plain sponge with butter cream.
I hate peas (but will eat mangetout and sugar snap) and haven't eaten them since i was little. and oysters, yuk! They taste like slime.
What about you?

I'll follow your example with a few choices
I love hot pies like steak, chicken and mushroom etc. I also Mexican food like enchiladas.
hot chocolate fudge cake yummy
dislike wobbly seafood like squid and octopus, meat with visible white fat (I have to cut it all off). dried fruit like currants in muesli (but can just about manage them in a fruit cake)

Ooh favourite is hard. Roast chicken, or Christmas turkey dinner with all the trimmings. Or steak, chips and peppercorn sauce.
Food hell would be shellfish of any kind

Hell: Coconut. I hate the taste and smell of it. H thinks I can smell it a mile away! Hate anything sweet and savoury together. Avocado, beetroot and lamb.
Heaven: cheese cheese cheese! Pizza.

Heaven: Spicy Indian or Thai

Gosh, I have quite a few favourites including battered sausage and chips from the chippy, chicken roast, pizza, sausage arribiata and of course things like chocolate and cheesecake!
I hate red meat still pink (has to be well done for me), also not keen on salmon or prawns, squid, etc.

Like many others I have loads of 'heavens'! Seems we all like our food here I love my grandma's curries and my mum's pizzas (she makes both the dough and the sauce from scratch!).
I can't bear raw tomatoes. Yuck. Oddly enough though I like them cooked, in soups and sauces etc. Just not raw!
Oh and I'm a vegetarian so won't eat meat or fish, although that's not exactly 'food hell' just things I don't eat.

Hell would be gooseberries and custard. Cannot stomach the smell of gooseberries never mind the taste of them. They are the one food which really still turns my stomach that I've hated from childhood. And custard just don't like although at a push I would eat it. But not the gooseberries.
Or anything heavily flavoured with chilli as I just don't like that burning sensation.
Heaven - proper fish and chips. Or roast dinner with roast potatoes. There's loads of foods I love I'd find it hard to choose just one.

Food heaven, a roast, particularly roast beef, mexican, chinese, indian and cheese
Food hell, fish that looks like fish or has bones in, salmon, anchovies, oops I also don't like shell fish, bakewell tart, maderia cake, marzipan and not keen on cadbury's or chocolate coated turkish delight. Although I do like proper turkish delight as long as it isn't totally covered with a really thick layer of icing sugar.

Food heaven, i love italian foods but also a good roast. I love sausage and mash too!
Food hell, fish really, anything other than chip shop fish. I'm dead fussy with meat so no fatty bits or rare steaks.

Interesting to see that fish and shell fish are coming up quite a bit as food hell. Shellfish I can understand as I'm not a huge fan of some of them, but I love many kinds of fish. And one of my favourite holiday memories is having a whole baked fish sitting out in the sunshine in Greece once.
Agree with the marzipan as a hate. Can't stand the stuff - just about manage with Christmas cake but those marzipan fruits are horrible. So add those to the gooseberries and custard and you've got my dessert from hell

Food heaven - my Mum's roast potatoes, palak chicken curry and risotto.
Food hell - cherries, nuts & lettuce!

Heaven: apple crumble + custard, fish and chips with mushy peas and a can of vimto, jalapeño chilli poppers from chiquitos, sweet potato, salmon, broccoli, chocolate in all shapes and forms. Couldn't live without yoghurt in general either.
Hell: full fat milk, pears (can't stand the texture) and I don't eat meat.
