The aforementioned buckwheat groats porridge, which was regularly served in the school canteen when I was a little kid.

Storyteller, it might, it might... But I adore buckwheat groats, too. Especially with chicken liver. :D But NOT with milk. Never with milk. And not cream of wheat, either, especially with lumps in it.

Re: The food thread

Postby GoodSam » Tue Dec 30, 2008 1:37 pm

Interesting thread. First I'll answer the questionaire, then some thoughts.

Name your three desert-island must-have ingredients

Garlic, any lean meat, salt

What would you have for your last supper?

I would start with a fresh green salad with a variety of leaves including various kind of lettuce, raw spinach, arugula, cherry tomatoes, thinly sliced carrots all with a nice bleu cheese dressing. Then I'll have a nice 12 oz. rib-eye steak cooked medium covered in sauteed mushrooms with grilled asparagus and a small baked potato all washed down with a nice glass of Merlot. I'll finish with a small dish of vanilla ice cream drizzled with Grand Marnier.

What food would you ban?

Three bean salad. This is the only food that activates my retch reaction as soon as it hits my mouth.

Favourite tipple?

Red wine. I favor Merlots, but I find some of the Californian blend wines particularly pleasing. Cabernet is a bit too dry for my tastes unless it accompanies a very strong main course.

Childhood treat?

Sugar cookies.

Most memorable meal?

There was a romantic dinner in Glenwood Springs when my wife told me she was finally ready to have kids. I think I was having some Cajun dish with angel hair pasta. Then there was the romantic dinner at Jacques in Laramie Wyoming where I proposed to her. I can't remember what I ate. I think I sense a pattern here.

Worst meal you ever had?

My wife and I "won" a dinner at a strange little restaurant in Laramie with really bad service, mismatched dinner-ware and flat-ware, and an extremely noisy bar playing Western music just on the other side of the uninsulated wall. We should have known when we were the only people in the place on a Saturday night.


Now the thoughts:

It occurs to me that a memorable meal consists of about 20% food and 80% company. I have eaten some of the most spectacular food with some of the most unpleasant people I have ever known and would consider those meals as terrible. In contrast, I have eaten Dominoes pizza with groups of wonderful people, and I consider them wonderful meals.

A spectacular view in a lovely climate and beatiful weather improves the quality of the meal by as much as 50 percent.

High price does not necessarily mean a good meal. Give me the quirky quaint little Malaysian restaurant near Embassy Row in Washington D.C. over the poshest of eateries anywhere any day.

Some times your own dining room table is the nicest place to eat in the whole city.

Adventure improves a meal in much the same way that climate and view do.

Did you ever eat it in a Russian school canteen ot any other kind of place that can be termed obschepit? It's a profoundly traumatic experience.

GoodSam, all your comments are excellent observations. But I have also found that some of the very best food has come right out of my kitchen and sharing with friends in a home setting where we can laugh loudly and everything is relaxed.

Also, the same above, but in the home of my family. My brother hosts all major holidays now and it is the greatest time, the very best of food and we sing and play until we drop.

For me, there is rarely anything better than that. :D

Agreed. Some of the best times have been with close friends of family over a home-cooked meal in one of our homes. Still, there's also something nice about not having to cook, or (even better) clean up.

Agreed, Ayslhyn. I would prefer to cook for friends and family or just for myself. I know that you and I have talked many ka-billions of times about food and preparation and while I haven't had the pleasure to dine with you yet, I hope to someday and then FORCE you to cook for me all the lovely curry dishes. :D

GoodSam, I love them both really. I adore cooking and adore eating out. If I am cooking I don't mind the clean up, and for MANY dishes, I would prefer to cook them myself. But a really good restaurant with a great staff, wonderful chef, warm lighting, great view.....hey, all good to me too.

Very interesting!

Name your three desert-island must-have ingredients.
Onion, rice, and beef.

What would you have for your last supper?
A big salad with fried chicken strips to go with.

What food would you ban?
All sweetbreads. :P Neither sweet nor bread!

Favourite tipple?
Well, I haven't had much, but I guess I'd go with hard cider.

Childhood treat?
Ice cream sandwiches. They attained a sort of mystical status because we so rarely had them.

Most memorable meal?
Hmm... I've had lots of good meals lots of places. None of them were particularly memorable for the food, or at least none of them more memorable than the others for the food. I'm gonna say the chicken & rice casserole I made the other day was pretty amazing-- the chicken was just right, so tender, and the rice soaked up the broth like it's supposed to, and I hadn't eaten since about 9 that morning so it was greatly appreciated. :P

There was also a spectacular meal in Italy, notable especially because the guy I was traveling with kept looking for fancy places with high prices and being disappointed by the quality of the fare, and finally I convinced him to try a little hole-in-the-wall with rough-hewn beams and poorly-applied plaster that was far cheaper and far better than anywhere we'd been previously.

Worst meal you ever had?
I can't remember any particularly awful meals. I can remember being forced to eat canned pears with a meal at least once a week, when I was younger, and absolutely loathing them, but I don't recall any particular meal.

:rofl: I think my family called those grits but we use butter instead of milk. Milk went into the oatmeal. :) My brother loves grits but they're a last resort breakfast for me and I get tired of them quickly. It can taste down right nasty when you put in the wrong amounts of sugar and butter too.

Re: The food thread

Postby elfshadow » Tue Dec 30, 2008 5:52 pm

Name your three desert-island must-have ingredients

Sourdough bread, apples, and onions

What would you have for your last supper?

Just about anything my mom makes. :love: She isn't into fancy foods, but everything is delicious. Let's say...rice and broccoli and cheese casserole. Oooh, or chili and cornbread.

What food would you ban?

Cilantro. Absolutely cilantro. I don't understand how people can eat this $@#$. And yet everyone seems to adore it. When I bite into it it's like I'm chewing on soap.

Favourite tipple?

A 40 oz. I am just classy. 8)

Childhood treat?

Homemade peanut butter cookies

Most memorable meal?

Oh, just about any big Christmas or Thanksgiving dinner with my family. :) One year we had turducken, that was really funny. :rofl: This year we had tamales. But they're always the best meals of the year.

Worst meal you ever had?

I ordered a salad one time at Panera and didn't realize that it had cilantro in it. This was before I figured out how much I hate cilantro, as I'd never really had it before. I started eating the salad and I literally thought that the lettuce was rotten. I had no idea why it was so terrible. I ordered the salad again once and brought it home, then found that it still had the same awful taste. So I told my mom to try a bite and she said it was cilantro. That's when I realized how evil an herb cilantro is. :x

Oh Elsha, you and your cilantro.


Name your three desert-island must-have ingredients

Bread, cheese (Colby Jack), and milk

What would you have for your last supper?

Toasted, cheesy, pot roast sandwich. With a nice glass of Dr. Pepper and and Godiva cheesecake.

What food would you ban?
Asparagus

Favourite tipple?

I've never heard of "tipple", but based on everyone else's answers, I'm guessing it has something to do with alcohol. In which case I'll just say Mike's Hard Lemonade, because I've heard it's good and I like lemonade.

Childhood treat?

Reeses Cups :love:

Most memorable meal?

Yeah..I can't think of anything.

Worst meal you ever had?

We had an exchange student from Mexico a few years ago, and she made some steak, and baked lime into it. Fruit and meat should never, ever go together. :puke:

This is so incredibly difficult for me I cannot even believe I am going to try this.

As to cilantro.. I guess there is a minority percentage of the population to whom cilantro has a 'soap' taste and therefore it does not taste the same to them as it does to the rest of us. Understandably, they would not like it as many other people do.


Name your three desert-island must-have ingredients

erm... oats ... olive oil... erm... only three? are we assuming we have veggies & fruits, etc.. and this is only ingredients??

What would you have for your last supper?

oi.. ... hmmm.. does a smörgåsbord count? :D Or perhaps go to Becco's.. (see most memorable meal below) ;)

What food would you ban ?

Liver

Favourite tipple?

wine.. a good fruity sangria that is not too sweet

Childhood treat?

I cannot think of ONE that really stands out.... maybe homemade ice cream?

Most memorable meal?

Oh.. it is Becco's italian restaurant in Manhattan. Hands down. DO NOT MISS IT IF YOU GO TO NEW YORK CITY!!!

Worst meal you ever had?

erm.. probably when I was a child and my dad poured sweet-sour three bean salad (which I do not like) all over my spaghetti (which I love) and made me eat it.


Elfy.. did you make your Lembas yet?
