We're having schnitzel tonight. Orik's invited. Steamed fingerlings, white schnitzel gravy, pan-roasted green beans.


Stouffer's?


Naw, as my fancy Texas friend would say, "Home did."

Orik's right. If I absolutely knew I was dying, it would be heroin 24/7.

A long Sunday mezza in spring with friends at one of those restaurants next to a stream in the bekaa valley. Or, a Radler on the sunny terrace of a hut in the alps...

Comfort and pleasure? Well-peppered, very crisp but still juicy fried chicken. Macaroni and cheese, very cheesy. Maybe some seared foie gras. The freshest possible vegetable, simply steamed.

Kind of like the idea of a Groundhog Day dinner party for 8.   Favorite people, foods and wines.   Repeat.

Obviously for comfort, pleasure and no thought the answer is a good amount of brown heroin.


If it has to be food then you all know what I like already.

 

 

You took the words right out of my arm.

Oysters, grouse, Stilton: champagne, burgundy, port.

The shellfish and cheese can be varied, but I don't see an alternate to grouse.

I did eat exactly that meal at Wilton's years ago, happily not my last.

This would have been much easier to answer if I had been asked years ago, when I thought a grilled lobster was the ne plus ultra.
