If you knew you could only cook one final dish...what would it be?

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 

I am a cook. Been one for 6 years. The restaurant business has saved my life. I owe my life to food. I will, until my dying day, do my damnedest to pay tribute to its honor.

 

I've been wondering, given the opportunity to cook one final dish...What would it be? So to you, la cosa nostra. The city that government forgot. I pose this question to you: What would YOU cook knowing it was your final presentation on this primordial coil?

A big ass, greasy burger, to satisfy someone.

 

Food would probably be the last thing on my mind, for whatever reason that was the last dish I was ever cooking.

Gnocchi with brown butter topped with parmesan

One perfectly cooked egg. Sunny side up.

Masubi. There I said it. There's no shame in my game.

Nothing shameful about Masubi. Cooks eat like shit. Pollopicu, you cater in CT?

I actually eat quite healthy, but if we're talking about "last meal" food, then why not.

I read it as the last meal I'd eat, not the last meal I'd cook to present. My bad. Guess I'm hungry.

Yep. CT.

Cool. I cook at WCSU. Actually, I'm getting married in December, what type of food do you make? We are still looking for a caterer.

Congratulations!

I do all kinds but the establishment I work for at the moment can only accommodate/cook for parties of up to 50-ish...I'm a catering chef for a small B&B in Litchfield county, which is way out of the way for you. I believe you're in Fairfield county? We also don't have warming units for off-premises. We usually handle more intimate home affairs.

How many guests are you having?

I live in Meriden but commute to Danbury. We're planning on having 125 at the Carousel Museum in Bristol. Looking to have a caterer do a take on carnival type food.

If it was something I was eating, a big fat pot of Vietnamese Pho.

 

For somebody else that I liked, Pollo Verde (marinated herb chicken) always a huge crowd pleaser no matter the background.

 

For somebody I didn't like, I'd give them a can of lentil beans.

 

If for whatever reason I'm trying to prolong the experience, I'd prep up some kimchi and disappear for two weeks, maybe longer *ninja cloud*
