The Smelly Things I Eat

You do not marry a Frenchman and suddenly start to love smelly cheeses. I don't think I ever will, actually.

And if you think he'll learn to appreciate your shrimp paste (belachan) and other pungent delicacies, you can keep on waiting.

So voilà the compromise is to eat my stuff when he's not around, though sometimes the proof remains in the air somehow and he freaks out when he comes home and gets a whiff of it...

Recent delicacies indulged in include Fried Dried Anchovies (ikan bilis) in Sambal Belachan, Okra in Sambal and Mussles and Okra in Spicy and Sour Sauce.

I wouldn't bother to provide the recipes. They are only for the initiated.
