There are so many things surrounding food for us to discuss. Your favorite restaurant, your favorite chef, your best memory. At dinner the other evening, my 8-year old son came up with this subject for our first CuriousDish discussion.
Let’s talk about the.best.taste.ever.
My best ever was at a business dinner at a restaurant in the South of France, somewhere between Marseille and Nice. I don’t remember anything about the restaurant itself, exactly where it was at, or even the other guests. What I do remember is having a mysterious dish being placed before me. It was a puff pastry, extraordinarily delicate on top of a large ramekin. But what was inside? Gently tapping the pastry found a luscious lobster bisque inside. I savored every bit of it as I worked my way through the pastry.
My wife tells me her favorite ever is a homemade chocolate sheet cake dessert at her Grandmother’s home for Sunday after-church family lunch.
For me, the best taste ever is driven by the presentation and that mystery leading up to a beautiful bisque. For my wife, it’s the memory of Sunday family dinners.
And our fearless leader recently told us that she found the “Best Dessert Evaah” in Boston.
So dig deep into your brain and tell us what your best taste ever was. Something at a local restaurant? Something special made by Mom or Dad? What drives the memory of that best taste? Tell me. I’m curious.
PS: My son’s answer to this question?: bacon. That’s my boy.
