What is Your Food Disgust Level?


Were you one of those kids who wouldn't eat their peas if they were touching your carrots, or were you the child who mixed everything together and just dove right in? One of the beautiful parts of cuisine is that there is truly something for everyone. If you want to be an adventurous eater who tries everything and anything, you can be. On the other hand, it's all right to stick to the old classics and avoid anything that might be a bit too unique. There are tons of factors that play into why humans eat the things we do. Childhood diets, cleanliness, cultural beliefs, texture sensitivities, and even the thought of certain ingredients can make a dish extremely appealing or downright inedible for certain people. Maybe the thought of chocolate-coated ants is gross to you, but it's a delicacy for someone else. This quiz focuses on identifying your food disgust level. By testing how you react to things like food cleanliness, smells, flavors, and your general feelings toward meat, you'll see how you measure up to everyone else. Find out if you're the pickiest eater around or if you're just the average diner.

Fun facts about French Cuisine

  • Historical Significance: French cuisine has a rich history dating back to the 14th century. Guillaume Tirel, a court chef known as "Taillevent," wrote one of the earliest recipe collections of medieval France, "Le Viandier".
  • Influence on Western Cuisine: French cooking has significantly influenced Western cuisines. Its criteria are widely used in Western cookery school boards and culinary education.
  • UNESCO Recognition: In November 2010, French gastronomy was added by UNESCO to its list of the world's "intangible cultural heritage."
  • Role of Cheese and Wine: Cheese and wine are integral to French cuisine. They play different roles regionally and nationally, with many variations and appellation d'origine contrôlée (AOC) laws.
  • Culinary Tourism: The Guide Michelin has played a crucial role in acquainting people with the cuisine bourgeoise of the urban elites and the peasant cuisine of the French countryside.
  • Regional Dishes: Many once-regional dishes have proliferated in variations across the country.
  • Medieval Banquets: In medieval French cuisine, banquets were common among aristocrats. Multiple courses would be prepared and served all at once.
  • Preservation Techniques: In the Middle Ages, many food items were preserved with salt, spices, honey, and other preservatives.
  • Influence of the French Revolution: The French Revolution played a significant role in the expansion of French cuisine by abolishing the guild system. This allowed anyone to produce and sell any culinary item they wished.
  • Nouvelle Cuisine: The term "nouvelle cuisine" has been used many times in the history of French cuisine to emphasize the freshness, lightness, and clarity of flavor. It was popularized in the 1960s by chefs like Paul Bocuse, Jean and Pierre Troisgros, Michel Guérard, Roger Vergé, and Raymond Oliver.

Did you know?

Your personality type can extend to your food tastes?

As odd as it may sound, researchers have found that among many other factors, your personality type is one of the biggest influences on whether or not you’re a picky eater. Think about it. Pretty much everyone knows at least one person who is up for anything. They’ll hop on the wildest roller coasters, be the first to try dangerous stunts, and—often—they will literally eat anything.

Experts have found a clear personality trait that drives some people to always be on the lookout for new and greater thrills. The strongest evidence for this is in studies of spicy food. Generally, people who self-identify as having a more reserved or cautious personality are far less likely to try new food, especially spicy dishes. However, people who say they often engage in riding roller coasters, hang gliding, or other heart-thumping activities are also far more willing to dine on new or exotic dishes.

How to Play?

Our personality quizzes are set up a little differently than your basic trivia quiz, but you’ve probably seen their kind around. Rather than having to choose the right answer from a list of multiple choice options, in this case, there is no “right answer”! (Two plus two will always be four, but every Golden Girls character is equally awesome.)

So, stop stressing. Just click on the answer that suits you best, and enjoy the ride. These quizzes are just for fun but who knows – you might just learn something about yourself along the way!
