Brocoli tastes bitter? I had no idea. I knew that it was always used as the go to nemesis for children at the dinner table, but I had no idea why. Then I listened to this episode of the podcast Surprisingly Awesome and they talked about how many people carry the gene to be sensitive to the bitterness in broccoli while others do not. Clearly I fall into that latter group. It really is a fascinating thought to think two people can eat the same food and it will taste so vastly different to them.
