Wow, I say люблю with food all the time and no-one ever thought that I'm weird :)
Good to know. I use love in English with food as well. She's been here in New Zealand for 10 years and switches between Russian and Ukrainian a lot. I think she may be getting confused and maybe getting out of touch. But we'll just keep that between us. Thanks for your help. Loving this Beta!
People commonly use любити with things in general and мені подобається with particular things, things you just saw/heard/tasted: я люблю морозиво - мені дуже подобається це морозиво (I love ice cream - I like this ice cream very much), я люблю котів - мені подобається цей кіт (I love cats - I like this cat)
People also use любити as a strong word for something you really like: мені дуже подобається ця пісня - я дуже люблю цю пісню (I like this song - I really love this song)
But you can never use любити to say about something you just "met" (e. g. "I love her dress!"). That's when people may think that you are weird :)
