I dislike a lot of foods, but I can usually understand how some people like them. Zucchini has me puzzled, though. It tastes bad enough to make me gag, and bad enough such that I could not imagine anyone enjoying it. People who claim to like it say it tastes much better when cooked with something flavorful. Any time I eat something of this sort, the taste of zucchini shows through; but if all you want to do is mask the flavor, why not use a less repulsive base?
