My mother, AYKB, lost most of her sense of smell in the Depression and was also not particularly interested in food as food, rather than fuel, apart from cakes, which she enjoyed and made quite well. And she was enormously faddish in ways which produced a war on artificial colourings and additives COMBINED with a boycott of foods from places she disapproved of COMBINED with "You can't shop at that market stall he's an awful man" COMBINED with the worries of growing up on very limited money in a pre-refrigeration era COMBINED with a belief in "healthy eating". So there were types of food which were inherently suspicious ("underdone" meat, shellfish, various spices) and types of ways of cooking it which were right out, and an insistence on substituting polyunsaturated health food shop vegetable oil spread for butter etc etc. The absolute nadir of her approach was the "healthy rice pudding" made with skimmed milk, polyunsaturated health food shop vegetable oil spread and unpolished brown rice.

She pressure-cooked sprouts.
