Express It In Yiddish:
each and every person has his/her own preferences and tastes and that's all fine, different strokes for different folks, there's no accounting for taste, to each their own

איך אומרים ביידיש:
על טעם וריח אין להתוכח, אין שני אנשים זהים זה לזה, כל אחד והשגעונות שלו

איינער האָט ליבּ סמעטענע און דער אַנדערער מפטיר

eyner hot lib sme'te'ne un der ande'rer mafter

one person likes sour cream another likes Maftir

אחד אוהב שמנת ואחד אוהב מפטיר

Yiddish is rich with expressions. In fact, sometimes the same phrase can be said in a number of different ways. I try to bring the unique ones, where it is is not obvious from the literal translation what the expression means.
