I read this in a book yesterday. The auther remembers the best meal he ever had, crackers and broth but it was after vomiting for a week, so when he could finally eat, it was wonderful.

We all have memorable meals. Whether because it was teh atmosphere, the food, a surprise, etc.
Outside the typical thanksgiving of course, unless there is a specific reason its tuck out. One thanksgiving dinner made second on my list. My step mother spends three days making everything from scratch.

The most memorable meal i had was at a bridal shower dinner for a good friend. it was at an italian restaurant called Della Noche.

I am not usually a huge alfredo fan, but my friend ordered it especially. This tasted like it was made by angels. Never had I had a meal so good.

Proscuitto and melon. I can't wait to go back again.

Well as a total food nut esp one who loves to cook it's hard to think of my best meal ever but the best meal I have had in the last year was in Italy.

While I was in Italy over the holidays my bf took me to his favorite restaurant there. It was a very nice place, you had to be dressed up which I did not mind
Anyway, I had this appetizer plate that had all kinds of Italian style mini appetizers. I don't know what half of it was but omg it was delicious! Then for dinner I had a type of ravioli with a white sauce. The only word I recognized on the menu was gorgonzola lol but these were the best raviolis I have ever had. I took the rest home and was really sad when they were gone. I can never have that unless I go back to Italy lol They were so creamy and the raviolis were stuffed with cheese and spices, not sure what kind of cheese though but it was delicious. That meal is probably my favorite in the last year that i remember.

I like to cook things myself and I wish I knew what this dish was so I could make it myself because I know my friends and family would love it.


Oh I forgot the fried treats I got at the Market there too were awesome! They were fried potatoes and cheese things. I have a pic somewhere lol The girl I was with just called them "yummy fried goodness." She was right! lol

The food there was awesome! It was kind of nice too cause my family is Italian/Sicilian on my mom's side mostly and my mom always cooked from scratch too and that is how I prefer to cook. It was nice to have actual home cooked food at restaurants there. They really do make everything from scratch. Funny thing i learned there is that Bertoli pasta really is made there and it's very popular although most of the people there make their own pasta, which I prefer as well. My friend said that Bertoli pasta is what you should use if you want to use real Italian pasta that is already made. Anyway, the food was great and i gained almost 10lbs while there lol

Good topic...should be an interesting thread!

I just had a wonderful breakfast the other day and it stands out as my most memorable meal in my life thus far (of course I am excluding mom's cooking because she might join ATS someday and read this) and it was surprisingly simple but awesome.

French toast made with Texas style bread, topped with whipped cream cheese and bake apples (like apple pie filling). I had never even heard of such a thing and out of curiosity decided to order it. My wife and I have breakfast at the same place about twice a week and apparently they had employed a new cook, this particular delight was his new addition to the menu.

Very good and will be a regular now in my diet...all the years of eating different delicacies and for some reason this breakfast delight is the one that stands out as most memorable.

Thanks for letting me share!

Best meal I ever have is Sunday lunch.......roast lamb with roast vegetables and fresh mint sauce.

I'm sure the best meal I'll ever have will be when food becomes so scarce or that you have'nt seen any food for a whole week and just stale bread dipped in something that resembles soup would seem like gourmet

Its what we refer to in England, as a ''Fry Up''

Generally it will consist of back bacon, eggs, sausage, beans, tomato, fried mushrooms, black pudding and toast, sometimes served with hash browns.

All to be washed down with a good cup of tea
edit on 19-6-2011 by Red_xi because: Forgot the mushrooms

Hmmm...does not sound bad. Thanks for clearing it up for me!

Although I would much rather have coffee in place of tea.

I would love to...thank you for the invite! Provided that things don't get too carried away over here and I can still get a passport...I would love the chance to travel and check it out!

Made me smile just thinking about it.

You English are such hospitable people...we need to learn some of that over this way someday.

It is deffinately good...I don't know that it is all that healthy but everyone needs to break the health cycle once in awhile!


I am not sure exactly how the cream cheese is done...I know it's whipped...but I think there might be a splash of vanilla in it. It tastes a bit like vanilla...I am not sure.

Anyway...have fun making it...it's a treat indeed!

You can make whipped flavored cream cheese and butter
I have done it lol

Yeah I don't care about the fat in it, if it's good there is always an occasion I can make it for lol

Plus it's not bad in moderation

My favorite meal of all time would have to be Steak and Baked potatoes.
Steak has to be grilled, medium rare. Usually a Ribeye, New York Strip, or Porterhouse.
Baked Potato: Baked in oven with Foil. (Never microwaved) with butter, cheddar cheese, sour cream, chives and bacon bits.
Add some fresh corn on the cob, a salad, and maybe some fresh yeast rolls.
Oh, and gotta have Iced Tea to go with it. (Sweetened with real cane sugar)
Gotta go, my wife is about to serve my Father's day meal. (Meat Loaf and Mashed Potatoes)
She makes the best.
Bon Apetit.
Noro.

that french toast sounds downright dangerous. XD
I dont put syrup on mine, i melt butter on it, and then cover it with powdered sugar, it makes like an icing.
