This week it's food.
The Michelin three-starred Fat Duck in Berkshire has been slated in the press for chef Heston Blumenthal's science-based cooking. Fancy salmon poached with liquorice?
Bacon and eggs ice cream perhaps?
How about snail porridge? Oysters in jelly with lavender? No thanks.
So we ask: what's the most unusual meal you've ever eaten?
At a wedding reception buffet, I helped myself to a large bowl of fruit cocktail and then heaped lashings of thick, whipped cream on top. Only when I started eating, at a table of strangers, did I realise it wasn't cream at all, but mayonnaise. To save face, I ate the lot.
Kevin McFarlane, 37, project manager, Stratford As a connoisseur of ice cream, my worst experience was a product called 'Too good to be true' which promised all the taste but half the fat. A famous actor promoted this marvel. It was by far the most disgusting concoction I have tasted - imagine skimmed milk poured over crushed ice and refrozen - yuck. Bacon and eggs ice cream sounds great for breakfast.
Andrew Powell, 40, senior group engineer, Manchester Thankfully I have managed to avoid some of the more hideous dishes like sheep's eyes and goats' gonads. I was once served a toasted teacake garnished with garlic butter. On enquiring about the origins of the dish, I was informed that it wasn't a local delicacy, rather a parting gesture from an outgoing chef.
Robert Pike, project manager, Exeter I've had a few nice meals in far-off places that have had a revolting effect, but I won't go into details. I did once make borscht for two from a recipe for four, in which I remembered to halve the quantities of all the ingredients except the vinegar!
Brian Rousell, 32, design & planning manager, Sussex When I was in the army I had to eat stew from a can.
Chrysostomos Loizou, 28, infrastructure engineer, Croydon As the former editor of NCE International, I've had the privilege of eating in many far-flung places.
Cold pickled duck's feet in Shanghai stand out as a squeamish high point as does another Chinese delicacy, drunken shrimps - not the grilled Hong Kong variety but live prawns swimming in brandy. A colleague maintains I once returned from a trip boasting of having eaten buffalo penis, but for some reason I have no recollection of the event.
