I can't stand to smell brocolli, cabbage and fish cooking. I love to eat all three of those foods but they always stink the house up when I cook them.

Limburger cheese tastes delicious but it stinks to high heaven.

Snapper before it cooks smells awful to me.

Sometimes the shrimpy/fishyness of Vietnamese or Thai cooking gets to be a bit much for me.

Easily, broccoli. It smells like loaded baby diapers after they've switched from milk to food.

And after raising four kids, I'm an expert on that particular odor.

Anything with assafoetida.

Spouse makes a simply wonderful dal that I could eat forever, but the smell of it when he adds the assafoetida makes me want to run away from home.

chitterlings. if cooked---parboiled, pressure cooked, or fried---in the house, you, along w/ all the furnishings, will have to be wiped down and cleaned, in order to continue to live in the house. you can't be that close to a butt hole w/out getting a little smell on you.

Rhubarb smells terrible when it's cooking. I don't actually mind the taste but the smell of it makes me want to puke. Eugh!

I don't get everyone saying broccoli though. Maybe my nose is just shot but I didn't even realise it had a smell when it cooked. I've certainly never noticed it anyway.

There are a couple of different ways to spell it, but the definitions can be found here:

Asafoetida - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

assafoetida - Wiktionary

Scroll down in the first link to the section on etymology - I particularly like the names it has earned in other languages, e.g. ***** du Diable, Teufelsdreck, and other translations of Devil's Dung.

As I said, the end result is wonderful, but oh, how I hate smelling it while it cooks.
