Jeff of C for Cooking tagged me for a "joint project"; five foods to eat before you die. Melissa of The Traveler's Lunchbox started this and has a running list of the entries so for (860 at press time). I have been enjoying reading others reccomendations. Let us see if I can live up to the high standard already set!
1. Oysters. Freshly shucked, raw, naked. There is no way to descripe them unless you have tasted it.
2. Marrow, spread on toast with fleur de sel. Another one of those things that sounds disgusting, but ..... Just try it.
3.Foie gras. I know, duck torture. However, PETA be damned (never liked them anyway), this is good. In small doses.
4. Milan's Tomato, sprinkled with fleur de sel. Really, I have never tried a tomato that tastes quite like his and I spent my childhood in the okanagan, a perfect tomato growing region. I don't know what is in his soil, but they are supposedly organic tomatoes...
5. Copper River Salmon. I eat a lot of salmon and nothing compares to this particular salmon.
I could keep going and going. I actually considered taking foie gras off my list, because it would upset some people and there are so many other things I could list. But that would be hypocritical....
