Please help - 9 month old spitting food - dreading every mealtime

Just that really - I have tried so many things - letting her play with food on the tray, giving her a toy to play with, giving her finger food while I spoon feed her, watching tv during meals, giving her a spoon, eating with her, not eating with her, putting a tissue in front of her mouth every time it looks like she is about to spit, singing to her (kind of worked actually but I can't do it for every meal!), shouting 'no' at her, ignoring the spitting and getting on with get the picture!!!

She used to be lovely to feed - I know, I know this is a stage - my dd1 must have done it too but I just don't remember it and I don't remember it being this bad - she literally covers me in food at every meal and I am so miserable and fed up.

Any advice please, apart from the usual mantra of 'This too shall pass...'

WHEN??? (She wails!)

Does she do it with food she really likes? If not why not just feed her what she loves for a while. It might break the cycle, then reintroduce other foods.
