"Don't knock a food out until you tried it three times. After the third try, you can safely say you'll never eat that again." -William Karmany-
A family friend, a retired Navy chef, had told him to always try anything three times, try it at different times, if by the third try, you still don't like the taste, then it's safe to give up on it. He had adopted that policy when it comes to trying new food.
