Famous Chefs Refuse To Eat These Foods

They may be the ultimate foodies, but even famous chefs have foods they just can't stand — and some of them are not what you'd expect Some refuse strong spices or overpowering herbs, while others despise some pretty common fare

Here's what some of your favorite TV chefs just won't eat Bananas Food Network Star Ree Drummond doesn't hold back about what she doesn't like When it comes to bananas, Drummond has three words: "Abhor, loathe and recoil" Drummond has developed a few banana recipes for her fans over the years, but they are not her favorite When asked about her perfect dish by Design and Living Magazine, she immediately took a shot at the yellow fruit

"Oh gosh, well again, if it doesn't have bananas I don't like bananas I like to drive that point home" Green peppers There's not much to hate about green bell peppers They're like lettuce — crisp and crunchy without any strong taste

But that's exactly why Chef Aaron Sanchez told Food Network he won't touch them "I like red bell peppers and yellow peppers, but green bell peppers just don't taste like much of anything" Wasabi Many chefs love spicy food with bold flavors, "BAM! That's a little 'bam' right there" … but not everyone can get on board Chef Katie Lee told the Food Network that she just can't handle wasabi

"I love spicy food, so I'm not sure why I have this aversion to wasabi, but I really detest it" While Lee holds the wasabi, she's up for other spicy bites, noting that she keeps hot sauce in her purse, just like Beyoncé Airplane food Chef Anthony Bourdain travels like no one else So it may be a little surprising to hear that while he spends much of his time on a plane, he never eats airplane food He told Bon Appetit, "No one has ever felt better after eating plane food

I think people only eat it because they're bored I don't eat on planes I like to arrive hungry" Because Bourdain refuses the plane food, he once decided to bring his own food on his flight, but never again "If you want to be the most despised person in the cabin, bring some good barbecue on and have everybody in the plane smell it

" Pineapple pizza Some people think pineapple pizza is the perfect blend of sweet and savory Chef Gordon Ramsay disagrees When hosting The Nightly Show, Ramsay decided to order pizzas for the audience Audience members called out toppings while he phoned in the order, and when one person asked for pineapple pizza, Ramsay lost it in his signature way "Let's have, umm

ten of the pepperonis?" "Pineapple!" "How many pepperoni's sir?" "You don't put f—– pineapple on pizza!" [Laughter] Deep-fried turkey Ramsay doesn't just hate pineapple pizza He also won't do grits or an American Thanksgiving favorite: deep fried turkey A friend in Los Angeles convinced him to try it, and "And it was f—— disgusting" [Laughter] "OhhhIt's so good!" "Dry turkey? There's a reason why we only eat that bird once a year" "I'm from the South, everything is deep fried We dip it in concrete, and then we deep fat fry it" Truffle oil Truffle oil just sounds elegant, so you would think that someone as proper and elegant as Martha Stewart would be all about it Well, you'd be wrong

Stewart told People, "I hate truffle oil It's horrible and horrible for you It's made out of chemicals, and it's not pure truffles" Coconut When chefs don't like certain foods, they have to decide if they are still willing to create recipes with them Many people love coconut, but Chef Giada De Laurentiis can't stand it and doesn't like to cook with it

She told People, "I don't like coconut I may have one coconut recipe in all the recipes I've ever written" Cookie dough Bizarre Foods host Andrew Zimmern told People that even though he enjoys some of the strangest foods on the planet, he can't do raw cookie dough — and some other perfectly normal foods, including oatmeal and walnuts "Raw cookie dough Won't eat it

Can't stand it I love fermented walrus, so I get to not like some things" Fair enough! "You gotta love this kind of thing Mmm 'Cuz it's kinda like eating sand
