  • Never. I hang out with my HR Director a lot and she's just awful with roasts. Like everything is always super well-done as she always errs on the side of overcooking. Unfortunately, she errs heavily and often. But the thing is, I'm not the only one because I remember this particular dinner party and seeing everyone's face when they were eating it. No one said a single even slightly negative comment. Fortunately, lots of wine was involved so by about halfway through, it didn't seem to matter that the food was bad.

    Anyway, I'm much happier when she invites me over for brunch because it always revolves around fresh fruits, store-bought charcuterie, and store-bought baked goods. This is definitely the meal that poor cooks should be hosting!

    • Amen to that! And it can still be a pleasant and enjoyable meal, probably even more so when you know what the alternative is

  • I’d be more honest about it with family and close friends. If it’s someone i don’t know, i would pick something good and bad about it while sugar coating it

  • Feed it to the dog under the table. I generally lie, don't finish it and say I'm not hungry. If I know I'll get it again, either I avoid dinner or fess up.

    • 🤢 I just threw up in my mouth

  • I don't remember having a crap meal that somebody else cooked for me, for a hell of a long time.

    As a kid, I got a fair few, but I always tried to eat them, and stayed quiet about it. I definitely remember, one guy I was friends with - his mother couldn't cook for shit, and she was a Home Economics teacher...

  • I can't really vote for any of these because it would totally depend on what it was and how bad it was. My ex was REALLY good at cooking a few things, REALLY bad at others but I never said anything, I just asked for the good things when it was her turn to cook.

    • Lol I don’t think that’s the desired outcome with any dining experience

  • I’d never tell the truth if it wasn’t good., unless they person was a family member or a close friend. I’m sure they will get feedback (no pun intended) from their friends or family if I’m just a casual guest for dinner...

  • I tell them that I don't care for it.
    If it is something that I seriously dislike and have to spit it out in my napkin, well I can't always hide that reaction if they are watching.

  • suck it up and finish what you can. If they care enough to make you food, the most you can do it try and eat it

  • I am a foodie and I like all types of foods. If the food is slightly burnt, or overcooked, or too much salt, or just tastes "off", then I will probably comment on it after I finished. That is because, despite all of these off-putting things, I can handle strange flavors pretty well unless it is too fishy, offal (certain organs take nasty), and strange textures and rank smells (duran, yuck!).

    Now if it was too spicy or smelled funny, I'd probably say something immediately or show it on my face. If it was my SO, I'd try my damnedest to hide it, at least until later when I'd tell her that I am not a big fan of that dish or that there was something off about it.

  • It really depends on how much I dont like it and why, like if there's no flavour I will generally just eat it and tell them that I didn't like it, or if it actually tastes bad, I jut won't finish it.

  • I'll eat it probably because it's a very nice gesture. If it's my partner I'll probably offer to cook together next time and help him or we'll just eat out :)

  • I will still eat it but when they ask for feedback, I would say something like, "it could have been better" or "it's not really my taste". Something along those lines.
