Imagine eating your first ever piece of chocolate cake. Or baked cheesecake.

Imagine biting into your first crunchy juicy sweet apple. 

Imagine your first ever sip of summer strawberry smoothie, rich with creamy yoghurt and bursting with fruit.

It's on for young and old here.

The final small member of our little family has started eating. (Organic baby rice and a little bit of avocado at this stage, but from little things… you know!) Very exciting.





I remember tasting apple-pie-icecream when I was about eight. It was the first time I'd had icecream with stuff in it – not just a straight flavour but a whole idea. That was awesome. I remember caramel from our neighbour when I was even younger, it had a lasting impact. That chewy, sweet, caramely goodness. I remember my first avocado. On a picnic on our front lawn with my Mum. 

What about you? More to the point, what would be fabulous to taste for the first time? A killer espresso brownie? Perfect brulee?

I’d never thought of it like that before – the first time you taste something. Gorgeous pictures. There are still some things I haven’t yet tasted, but those things I’m happy to leave be, such as fried tarantulas and toasted cockroach. Those silly people on the telly who feel they have to try these things can keep them.

What a fun topic. For me I think re-tasting strawberries or peanut butter for the first time would be incredible!

Well actually, this Christmas was my first vegan one and it blew my mind to taste vegan “liver” pate that actually tasted of liver; here’s the recipe, briefly: fry one chopped onion until translucent; cook a cup or so of brown lentils in vegetable stock, drain; soak and process a cup of salt-free walnuts. Blend the onion, lentils and walnuts together with salt, pepper and a few fresh herbs like rosemary, time, oregano; chill and eat with crackers. Amazing! Even the colour was spot on!

They are the most gorgeous pics!
I have loved to watch my kids’ faces as they’ve tried new flavours for the first time.
I love how expressive they are. Sour, sweet, dry, salty…
I love how they try to describe it to me too.
Have fun.

I remember being in the local “asian” restaurant with my mum at age 9 (maybe older, but I’m talking 1980) and trying some green weird stuff. I spat mine out, mum chewed hers (briefly) and popped it on the side of the plate. When the waitress came over mum pointed to her briefly chewed stuff and said, “what’s that” the waitress promptly popped it in her mouth and said “coriander” but mum and I were in fits of laughter… yeah, I totally remember trying coriander haha
