It's love at first (or second) bite with some food
Sometimes it takes baby steps, or baby tastes, before we realize we actually like a certain type of food.
For some, it might have been a first bite of a Reuben sandwich that led to a love of sauerkraut. For others, a bit of tapenade dabbed on a goat cheese-topped cracker that led to an appreciation of olives.
For me, it was my first taste of crispy baked pieces of torn kale that led to an affinity for the firm green leaves with thick hardy stems.
