Responding to another thread got me to thinking. We have had similar threads but let's try this. I would like to know what you would choose if you were asked to name the one item that you have tasted in your life that to you was the ultimate in taste, for whatever reason. Then describe why . I realize that it is difficult to choose just one when many may be tied. But you are being forced to choose one. For me the ultimate taste may well have been a Duck Leg Confit. The richness of the duck meat, the silkiness that the slow cooking produced. The underlying flavor of Thyme, my favorite of all herbs and the saltiness that the curing produced. When I had it it was warmed up and then crisped up in a saute pan. I drool when I think of it. Oh why does the best have to be so bad....... :lips: And you....?
