Max reminds me that he doesn't like pumpkin every time I serve it (which is often). And I get that, we all have foods that we're not really fond of.
However, I am also a firm believer in a few food facts:
1. Our tastes change. Yes they do. Think wine/beer/coffee.
2. We can learn to like tastes (wine/beer/coffee)
3. The more familiar we are with a food the less offensive it becomes
4. Different prep methods can make a food more palatable.
These are the reasons I keep serving and keep expecting Max to like pumpkin more.
And to a degree I have been proven correct. Last year he begged me to take him to the Food & Wine Show (which I did). He tasted Simon Gault's Indian spiced soup and LOVED it. I tried very hard not to say "told you". I make a version of this soup quite often now (including tonight) and Max eats the lion's share.
