I'm sure I'm not alone in this!
I will eat raw mushrooms (and often do when I am preparing them) but don't much care for them cooked. They're fine if chopped up quite small. It's not the taste it's the texture.

Now that made me really laugh.

Looks like a gap in the market. Why don't we all write a 9 ingredient recipe and then publish a DVDF 9 ingredient recipe book.

Just came across this one - The worst cookbook in America: A collection of the most odious concoctions ever brought together at one time in one place

Only available used (at over £50!)- but had to laugh at the Tuna Twinkie Souffle - now where do you get Twinkies from in the UK?

If you want bad recipes, just find some british cookbooks from the 70's and 80's. Esp those ones for 'the busy chef'. There was one I found that involved pouring a tin of spaghetti into a bowl, breaking an egg over it, covering it with 'hard table cheese'* and then baking for 20 minutes. Smashing!

*what we used to have instead of parmesan, I think.

I'm not saying that ALL the recipies are unattainable , but half the time I watch these shows and think, "That jar of spice is about six quid,there goes two quids worth of cream, that fish would be about a tenner in my supermarket, I'd have to find some obscure deli to buy that..."
