I no longer hate Brussels sprouts! For years, I couldn’t stand them even though I kept trying them hoping they would taste good. I tried them prepared by chefs I trust, and still no luck. I had an inkling that things would someday change when I tried one a few years ago at Millennium and it actually tasted okay.`
For the first time, I bought some Brussels sprouts that were still on the stalk and cooked them up the next day. I actually wanted seconds they were so yummy.
