If you love food, the idea of your “Perfect Food Day” will be enchanting.
I first heard of the idea on the Spilled Milk Podcast (which is awesome, btw!)
The question was:
If you had a perfect food day, what would you eat and drink for breakfast, snack, lunch, dinner, and dessert?
Fantasizing about this day got me EXCITED. Your choices need to be a specific dish (not a general restaurant.)
It’s almost impossible to narrow it down, but here’s what I came up with. I’d need a private jet to complete this mission. But I would die to be able to eat all of this in one day.
Bacon and Brisket Hash with Kale and Apple and Fried Egg and Toast from P’s and Q’s market in Portland. With a latte from Blue Bottle coffee.
Shanghai pork and crab soup dumplings at Joe Ginger’s in NYC. With hot tea.
Ferdi Po’Boy at Mother’s in New Orleans. A sandwich filled with ham, roast beef, debris (crunchy burnt bits of roast beef) and dipped in gravy. Sinfully unhealthy. But one of the most delicious things I have ever eaten, and I have dreamed of eating it again for years.
One of these lamb tagine’s from 404 restaurant in Paris. This is one of those perfect dishes I had years ago I will never forget. Hard to say if this place is still as good as the memory. But I would like it with a Bueno cocktail (jalapeno tequila, yellow chartreuse, lime) from Temple Bar in NYC.
Panna Cotta with Passion Fruit and Sables (unsure where to have this so I would probably make it myself. But panna cotta is my favorite dessert of all time.)
Now it’s your turn.
What would YOU eat on your perfect food day?
