It’s a simple question, but one that drew nearly 30,000 comments and upvotes on Reddit, and it's still going strong. It seems that when it comes to cooking and food, people have very strong opinions and they are not for turning.
We all have our culinary quirks, but some of our food beliefs are so deeply embedded that they are more than just preferences and actually more akin to values or belief systems. Whether they are inherited at the family dinner table, passed on by doting grandmothers, forged in the white heat of service, or formed through trial and error in the kitchen, they are the culinary values that we live by and form the basis of our own cuisine.
Here are some of the most noteworthy reactions, but make sure you visit Reddit to explore more.
