    Which foods do you find irresistible? Which do you find youself chowing down on when you're already sated?
    I have several, but I'm interested in knowing where others' fundamental tastes lie...

    Dear FoodnFoto:

    They are so many!

    If I had to choose only one it would be "Kokoretsi". I have not had any for twelve years now and I am ready for it!

    :D

    My mother's German potato pancakes... not fresh-hot, but the leftover ones, sitting on the counter after supper. Eaten slowly out of hand, sprinkled with garlic salt.

    Pickles. Pickled anything, pickled anyhow. I never met a pickle I didn't like.

    Bittersweet chocolate. Extra-salty licorice. Guylian Seashells. Chocolate-covered malt balls (like Whoppers, but I get these ones from the grocery which are bigger, with thicker chocolatey coatings).

    Any or all of these, depending on the day.

    I like different food at different time, depends on my mood and energy level.


    There are some food only a mother can make like scramble eggs and french toast too. My mom makes the best.

    A bit more gastronomical: duck with just about everything. Can't forget my mom apple duck, she makes the best.

    Lobster of course, foie gras, not that I have it often.

    Pear & almond tart. Clementine on it's own, it's the perfect fruit.

    Let's not forget ginger scones.

    You know, it can be almost anything, depending on my mood. I can munch salad until I burst when longing for fresh veggies. Or too much freshly smoked roast beef. Chocolate, of course, in almost any form.

    Ah, but what destroys the diet the worst is freshly baked bread with butter.

    On the other hand, you will never find me eating too many lima beans or too much liver.

    Greek was mandatory in College but I forgot most of it.
