I have a special cooking technique just for people like you.

I'll cook the "those peoples" steak to about 130 first, pull it and toss it in small ice chest wrapped in foil, it'll never get above 140. Then right before I serve I toss it back on the grill for a few minutes a side.

You think its well done because all the pink is gone on the inside but its still a med rare.

1. Barbeque ribs
2. Pan fried steak
3. Breakfast eggs

In that order of avoidance. Not that I would NEVER eat them elsewhere but I definitely avoid it.

Scallops. Like most seafood, they're really easy to overcook. I like to keep my eyes on them and remove them from the heat the instant they're done.

I've spoiled myself to my pecan pie. I have never found another that comes close.

I won't eat home canned food unless I canned it myself, or know the person who canned it extremely well and seen how they cook. I've heard too many horrifying tales of how people use dangerous methods and claim it is perfectly safe because no one in their family has died yet.. I just won't take the risk.

While I may prefer my cooking of certain dishes over another's, I'll always take and eat the foods that are offered. Why wouldn't I? Everyone knows the foods I like and it would be pretty weird to go to someone's house and not it it just because they cooked it. If I don't take a dish, it's because I genuinely dislike it and wouldn't ever make nor eat it.

Agreed.

In many other countries, preparing food for a guest is mandatory, even if it's at great budgetary expense--anything less would be a tremendous insult. At the same time, for a guest to refuse to eat food prepared for him--possibly at great budgetary expense--would also be a tremendous insult.

I've learned to slice my steak in half before returning to my table at a BBQ *or* before you let the server leave the table.
