As I’ve gotten older, I have found that even several foods on my “hate” list can be transformed into tasty dishes by someone who REALLY understands the ingredient.
I have some hope that since A) my case was relatively mild, B) my sense of taste seems mostly intact, and C) my sense of smell isn't completely gone, it will recover quickly and well. That may prove to be false hope, but false hope is better than none ...Damn! I hope you recover soon, and with your senses intact!
I’d probably try anything on that menu. Everything, given enough time and money.
Theres a couple of bakeries around here that make their choux pastry ahead of time and let you choose the filling. It’s about the closest thing around here to a New Orleans style chocolate eclair- as in, chocolate frosting with chocolate filling. Even in the French bakeries here, most chocolate eclairs have a creamy vanilla filling with a chocolate frosting.
