My younger brother, a very well seasoned eater,  admitted last weekend that he actually doesn't like chicken livers. He confided that he only really tucks in  - as he currently so was doing - because he loves the sauce they come served in.

Ubiquitously, in South Africa, chicken livers are served smothered in a spicy and indeed very tasty peri peri sauce. So his confession was at first surprising ( because i can recount numerous occasions where he volunteers the ordering of livers ) but on contemplation made perfect sense.
