Daily special a bad idea?

09 November 2017 - 02:34 PM


It can be hard to decide what to choose from a menu when you dine in a restaurant.

But some chefs and waiters have lifted the lid on what really goes on in the kitchens, and highlighted dishes you should always avoid.



Why you should never order the daily special in a restaurant

Preferred first course

02 November 2017 - 02:08 PM

For, say, a 3 or 4 course at-home dinner with different wine for each course, what might be the preferred non-soup first course -- both from the cook's point of view and the diner's?


From the cook's point of view, it needs to be (mostly?) pre-prepared, preferably warm, and easy to plate and serve.  And, of course, from the diner's point of view, delicious, wine-friendly, and hopefully at least somewhat memorable.


Thanks for all thoughts!
