Most likely because of evolution, like many weird things about humans. Meat tastes great when it’s grilled, because then it’s (like 99%) free from bacteria. Cooked/grilled fruit and vegetables like pineapples or potatoes taste good as well. But warm and never roasted fruit or vegetables are disgusting in most cases, because they started to rot and become dangerous. Cold fruit doesn’t allow bacteria to grow and is an indicator for fresh food, and tastes great because then it’s also a good source for vitamins, water and sugar.

The less dangerous something is, the better it tastes.
