  • Eat around the unpleasant bits. Try to eat some of the gross stuff but then politely say it's not to my taste. They should understand. If they are good friends/family they ought to have known what was to your taste in the first place and not cooked you something you wouldn't like

  • I can remember when this happened. My sister made meatloaf for the first time and forgot to put breadcrumbs in it and so it was basically a loaf of meat covered in ketchup that had been cooked. All in all not awful but when you go for a bite of meat loaf and end up with just cooked hamburger in your mouth it is weird. I just let her know it was strange and we looked over the recipe and figured out what happened.

  • My brother's girlfriend made a vegan curry and it tasted disgusting. I ate as much as I could without actually throwing up then snuck off to the toilet to actually throw up before returning, sitting down eating a little more and saying I'm full.

  • If they get up to do something I'll usually let the dog devour some quickly then say I'm not full which is more convincing with most of the food gone because of the dog

What Girls Said 23

  • I tell the truth in a nice way. They should know so they can be better. When it comes to cooking you need to be honest. Some people can actually feel sick if the food wasn't good. I use to always feel sick when I ate something nasty or wasn't cooked right. So I remembered telling myself ( before I started cooking ) that I want complete honesty and to make sure the food I cook is done right if not I'm not going do let anyone eat it.

  • If it's just not good, I'd eat a spoonful at a time followed by drink. If it's like hella nasty, I'd either scarf it down or take even smaller bites. And say something like "I don't know why I'm so full! Sometimes I can barely eat (ex) rice, pasta, whatever the food is made of (within reason))

  • No no you let them know the truth and contribute always let someone know i you dont like something otherwise you'll find yourself eating more of it in the future say itnnicley itnisnt something I typically like you'll find there's an agreement upon you dont need to eat it I've had only a small few times someones served me something I can't eat vs i do not like it nods maybe something else is worth it

  • I'm an adult, I keep eating and say thank you because someone went to the effort of cooking for me!

    It won't make me sick and it is edible, so just being polite and eating it is the right thing to do in my book.

  • I don’t say anything if it isn’t necessary, but I don’t want to be dishonest either, so if they ask I just say “it’s not my favorite, but thank you for making the meal for me”

  • I tell them it's great and keep eating normally. I can't believe how much people would told them it's gross. It's shocking O-O
    In my country they would be considered rude and they would get hated.
