Liver is another thing B
won't eat so I don't cook it and anyway it is high in points.
When I was engaged to my latex husband, I was going to do lamb's liver
for dinner one night and he told me he hated liver. He then tasted
some of what I'd cooked and said it was nothing like what his mother
served and he really liked it. I told him it was possibly not lamb's
which she served and doubtless she overcooked it.
Sometime after we married ma-in-law asked me one day what we were
going to have for dinner and I said liver. "Our Leslie doesn't like
liver" she stated. I thought it politic not to say "he doesn't like
the liver you serve but he loves it when I do it".
That sounds very much like my latex husbad and his mum! In his case
it was roast lamb which gave him a problem, when he went home raving
about the lamb I'd cooked him, only to be reminded that he didn't like
lamb. I don't think he was as tactful as you; I think he did say
that he loved it the way I cooked it, which was very different from
when his mum cooked it.
We both very much enjoyed offal although in the end I gave up cooking
kidneys for him. He was working in a path lab at the time and I
always seemed to cook kidneys on days he'd been dealing with renal
biopsies! Understandably, he wasn't too keen on eating them just
then, however much he enjoyed them on other occasions.
 Note to Rosie, I generally preferred lambs kidneys and I don't
remember using Encona Hot Sauce on them, although I did like devilling
