Friday Five: Top Chef Edition

RevHRod brings us a foodie themed Friday five based on the hot show TopChef.

If you were a food, what would you be? Really good lasagne. Lots of layers, complex flavors, comforting but still interesting....sometimes cheesey....yep, that'd be me!

What is one of the most memorable meals you ever had? And where? I was on my first trip to Boston and strangely enough, it was not seafood. But it was the the next thing you think of there, Italian. But not in the North end. But it was the BEST Italian food I have ever eaten at a little place called La Groceria in Cambridge. Tucked off at the end of a block. Pasta to die for. Went back on my next trip and, yes, it was still as good!

What is your favorite comfort food from childhood? Macaroni and cheese. Baked.

When going to a church potluck, what one recipe from your kitchen is sure to be a hit? Krustees Pecan Bars. Everyone thinks they are homemade and wants my recipe.

What’s the strangest thing you ever willingly ate? Lutefisk. And everything they say is true.

Bonus question: What’s your favorite drink to order when looking forward to a great meal? Dpends on the food, I like to match...margaritas with mexican, sake or plum wine with chinese....good wine.....it's all relative!

Lutefisk? Wow...after looking it up on wikipedia, that does sound strange!

Sally said...

PK said...

I love all of the Krustees stuff... it IS as good as homemade!

Barbara B. said...

So is the recipe for Krustees Pecan Bars on their box? (I love pecan pie, pecan bars, etc.)

Lutefisk, I believe is only strange if you ate it in a non german/nnorweigan community. My opinion, good play.

With my 22 year old son home, I'm cooking homemade macaroni and cheese for dinner tonight! Glad it's your comfort food--hope BJ likes it, too.

I think anything that is soaked in lye should qualify as a non-food product. I was expecting to see haggis in one of these plays, but totally forgot about lutefisk. And I'm Norwegian! Uff dah!

Many times those little out of the way places are gems. Fun play.

baked macaroni and cheese is so much better than the boxes! didn't know this until I learned to make it from scratch (in Japan). and yes, I too loved the lasagne description. (made me hungry).
