There is a house in New Jersey where it is said a man ate a tomato for the first time and lived. It's one of those Civil War style houses with a brass placque about the event. The whole town turned out expecting him to die horribly. I don't like tomatoes unless they are tomato paste and don't look like a huge poisonous berry.

When you make eggplant, you should slice the eggplant into disks then salt both sides. The salt draws out the bitter taste. Wash off the salt after about half an hour or so then fry in good olive oil. This part of preparation seems to be skipped even on the Food Network. Failure produces very bitter eggplant.
Try fried eggplant and cream cheese sandwitches (I found these in Italy.)
