What is your signature dish?

Maybe a two part question.

What one dish do you consider to be your signature dish? The one dish that says YOU all over it. The one you are most proud to put in front of company.

Possible secone question. Those that you cook for on a frequent basis, may view a different dish as your signature. If you are aware of this then what is that one.

I feel that my signature dish is my cheesecake. I got the recipie from a restaurant that drew from miles around for just this cake. I top mine with three kinds of fruit and seldom have leftovers.

Many of my friends are very enamored with my Rye Bread. I have shipped it as far as Atlanta. Also great reviews.

Hope you all have fun with this.


One difference between a cook and a chef is that the cook mows the lawn, while the bread is rising.

My signature dish is my Thanksgiving dinner, the best 3 being my Turkey (stuffed with meyer lemons & fresh grown herbs), carrots in a dill cream sauce and the greatest sweet potato dish ever (and I got it here!): Best way of cooking sweet potato?

The one that most ask for is my cookies, specifically my Grandma's Monster Cookies. They're big & chewy and IMO, the greatest cookie in the world. Someday I hope to publish them (as well as other recipes) as a tribute to my Grandma.

I would have to say my Lasagna is my signature dish. My sons have requested it and others have raved about it.

I have no idea what my signature dish is. Wow. I have never thought about that. I'll get back to you on this one. Maybe my husband will see this and weigh in. Ken? You out there?

MY family and friends love my homemade ravioli and the sauce or gravy for them..They also request my stuffed onions..All three were from tying my mother-in-law to a chair and forcing the ingredients out of her These I learned to give my DH something he dearly loved after his mom couldn't do them anymore and also for his brothers who's wives just didn't want to be bothered..So I learned
