What did you eat this year that you will never forget? What went into your mouth & touched your soul?
Wow, them's strong words. Umm...lobster feast & wine tasters in Mexico comes to mind. As does the lunch at my all-time favorite restaurant (El Q'ero in Encinitas) that I finally got to go to with one of my fellow foodies (Alyse). The lasagna I ate at Buon Appetito in Little Italy in San Diego was the best I've ever had. (Sorry, Mom. You're still amazing.) However, what truly touches my soul are great dishes prepared lovingly by family and friends. So for that I look to my Ma--who has been my #1 inspiration as a cook all my life, and my buddy Tim, who is a talented cook and grillmeister who always aims to please!
