My preferred meal is...what is yours?

prosciutto with melon
roasted leg of lamb
roasted potatoes
green salad
and to whash it all down....a Pinot Noir


For me, a balanced meal is having a large piece of cake in each hand!!

Lots of fresh seafood with accompanying sauces and salads. Lots of picky food - I love grazing. Innovative dishes grab me too. And must have variety!

Not huge on desserts but love to have sorbets with some fresh fruit.

And to wash it all down - lots of very cold water on ice, some bubbly and a non-alcoholic mocktail like a strawberry daiquiri.

Too many restaurants, not enough time...

The one that sets before me at the time
My taste varies too much to narrow it down to even a food group!

I cannot, simply cannot.

I think of starting with scallops, but then my mind will come up with a soup or hummus.

Then I imagine foie gras, or mussels mueniere or shrimp or crab meat cocktail.

A lovely country pate, maybe sone quail, oh yes, lobsters maybe made ala Americaine on angel hair pasta, or a .......

And that is for starters. Or I might consider just tapas.

And that is only for starters.

No, I cannot choose a favorite meal. All I can tell you is that if I could it would not contain cauliflower.

Wow...Thats a tough question for Miss Dodi.

Lots of seafood, both fish and shellfish prepared in various ways. Maybe a light delicate sauce or two. Sides wouldn't be to important.
To wash it all down a nice 2007 Water with Lemon!!

The only way I could be forced to choose is if it were going to be my last day on Earth. If it was, I'd be very hard pressed to choose a favorite meal based on what I liked best, as I adore so many kinds of foods. Rather, I'd have to base my choice on the rarity of the food. So I think I would choose a meal of wild brook trout, from the Canadian streams emptying into Lake Superior, dredged in flour and pan fired in cooking oil. With that I would want a creamy soup made with morrel mushrooms, riced potatoes with black truffle shaved over the top and sweet-cream butter, perfectly seasoned bread dressing with turkey giblets and chestnuts, breaded and deep fried squid rings, a small chunk of seared, rare tuna, a mall chunk of prime, aged, rib steak, bone on, and for desert, creamy New York cheesecake, topped with wild Michigan Blueberry preserves.

Seeeeeya; Goodweed of the North

This would have to be enjoyed in company with my family.
