Desert Island Dinner

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
If you were stranded on a desert island for the next 50 years but could have one perfectly cooked dinner once a week (and with any ingredients) what would it be ?

Bear in mind you have to eat it every week for 50 years and it is always the same.

For me it'd be Chicken in a Pot. Basically, it's stewed chicken (or hen, if you can find it) in chicken broth with noodles, kasha, kreplach (Jewish won tons), and matzo balls. It's kind of like matzo ball soup on steroids. :D

for me it would be a big fat rib eye steak with fried onions, garlic and wholegrain mustard, mushrooms, a big old crunchy green salad with tomatoes, cucumbers, avocado , microgreens,and blue cheese and a baked potato topped with sourcream

Since it's a desert island, I'm assuming I get my fill of fish on the other days.

Double Boodle's martini up, very dry, shaken very cold, with two jalapeno stuffed olives; sourdough toast points with avocado and fresh salmon caviar; Caesar salad with a glass of Frascati; (prime) prime rib on the bone, creamed fresh spinach, mashed potatoes, Yorkshire pudd, creamed horseradish, and a bottle of a HUGE Sonoma Pinot; chocolate mousse made with Mexican chocolate and Dominican rum (Brugal); a glass of orange muscat; and a snifter of very, very old rum.

Gee, is that a 'desert' island or a 'dessert' island? I'm not much of a fan of sweets, but I do make this Triple Threat chocolate cake which is basically a two layer devils food cake with a thin layer of flourless chocolate cake in the middle. The recipe for the frosting starts out by melting a stick of butter in a cup of heavy cream, then melting in a pound of bittersweet chocolate. There's dark rum involved. Not exactly the low-cal diet plate..

Odd how different variations of this topic crop up from time to time. I'd probably go with some sort of combination of what Tessa and BDL said, with a bowl of a good, rich onion soup somewhere early on in the menu. For carnivores, a great slab of beef rib in some form or another is hard to beat. I prefer to not dilute my horseradish with sour cream or whatever. A wedge of real Roquefort and some slices of a crisp, tart apple or a sweet, juicy peach would have to be included at some point as well.
