    Re: not love food

    favourite/least favourite is the way we say it in England, but your spelling suggests you might want a view from the US.

    The phrase 'least favourite' may seem a bit formal for some contexts. The most natural rephrasing would be 'The food I like least is pork'. (In very informal usage people sometimes use a word that is unacceptable in standard usage: 'unfavourite' - avoid this, unless your listeners can hear the quotation marks [that is, be sure they know that you know what you're doing].)

    I don't find "least favorite" to be terribly formal.

    Re: not love food

    My favourite food is ham. I don't like pork.

    Least favourite means, to me, that you like it but it's at the bottom of your list of foods that you like.
