Try okra in a seafood gumbo you might change your mind. :P
I agree.. Okra is delicious in gumbo.. Cajun cooks, worth their salt, won't cook a gumbo without it..
The taste & texture I can't rave about when cooked by itself in a saucepan.

For food phobias? In western culture, insects don't make a bit hit on the dinner table..
Sowbugs (those little woodlice you find under a log or a rock, that curl up when you touch them) probably put your off, yet they are in the same phylum (Arthopoda) and subphylum (Crustacea) as lobster & crab, which are might tastey.:tongue2:

I'm afraid to eat blowfish. There is this nagging fear that I could die.
My mother has a sister, she is very good at cooking with a blowfish

The smell of a ham joint being boiled actually makes me sick, is this a phobia?

I liked boiled octopus. In Japan they have street vendors selling bright red octopus on a stick (or is it squid?) - meaty and slightly smoky, like a very tough hot dog.

And beef is in the same phylum and class as bat.
