I watched someone defile rice last night by boiling it like pasta. I grimaced as he fished the rice out with a strainer and, as a Chinese woman, every fibre of my being was screaming “You’re doing it wrong!”.

I don’t like cheese. I hate the taste, the texture and the smell of it. But I love pizza, so every time I eat it I would scoff the toppings, then meticulously peel the layer of cheese off, toss it aside and devour the base. Onlookers would watch in horror as I discard what they would call the best part of pizza.

Let us know about your worst food foible in the comments.
