Just as fresh oysters were to Anthony Bourdain and Sole Meuniere was to Julia Child, the meal that was my epiphany to refined food was an unforgettable dinner of French onion soup and herb-encrusted rack of lamb at the Le Meridien Hotel in New York back in the mid-1990's.

This is a question that is very hard to answer.. So much is dependent on circumstances, desires at the time.

We caught, cooked and ate some shrimp in South Carolina that were just unbelievably good..

Many years ago, Chinatown, Chicago at King Wah's I had these rib tips in garlic sauce.. The sauce was so good everyone at the table was spooning it onto their plates.

Pork loin cooked on hot coals when camping.. man that's 'good eats'....

A small town bar here in Indiana serves unbelievably good steaks!
It's all in the mood and location... I wouldn't put one above the other.

Don't let love interfere with your appetite. It never does with mine.

Summer squash salad with candied pine nuts, sliced fluke with pickled pearl onion, and steamed pork buns from Momofuku in NYC. The flavour combinations were amazing, I was completely blown away. I think it was then I became a devoted foodie!

Omigosh! There have been sooooo many "best" things I've eaten that I can't say only ONE.

However, I would have to say that my introduction to some of the most awesome gourmet food would have to have been when my father took me to the Blue Room in the Roosevelt Hotel in New Orleans when I was 13.

The dining room was like a movie set and I felt like a queen when we were seated at a beautifully draped table that was set with beautiful china, glassware and silverware...even a few fresh flowers.

I can remember like it was yesterday what I had:

tiny roasted Cornish game hen with wild rice stuffing
green beans almondine

I'd never seen anything so amazing in my young life and I was in heaven when I took my first taste of the tender, sweet little bird.

My daddy loved good food and guided my menu choice that night. I've always had a special place in my cooking repertoire and my heart for Cornish game hens.

Sadly, my daddy died when I was 24, but that memory is still crystal clear and as sweet as the little hen was.

This is real inspiration. Look what Julia became!
