+1 on the steak.As noted in another thread, my food hell would be meringue. Heaven would be a 28 day Bega "Angus" steak, cooked veeeeery rare over coals.What is your food heaven and food hell ?
Watery and unseasoned - agreed, but with plenty of butter and sea salt lumpy mash is a thing of beautyFor example lumpy unseasoned watery mashed potatoes!!! Everyone loves good mashed pots but who likes the ones described above?
But, but, but....they go perfectly together :shock:Food Heaven - Pork CracklingFood Hell - Coleslaw
I would almost agree with that...but there are one or two exceptions for me. For example, sea cucumber cannot, IMHO, be done well - it just doesn't have any redeeming features whatever. The Chinese are into keeping a balance in their cooking, between Yin and Yang flavours/textures etc - a friend of mine theorises that the sea cucumber must be at the wrong end of all of the relevant scales, which is why they use it, as it will balance anything else that they might choose to put in the dish. I suppose that tripe & onions is the UK equivalent - has about the same culinary value as slow-cooked face flannels.Heaven - All of it, I have yet to try something that I cannot comprehend eating as long as it's done well.
We are talking food here, aren't we?Food heaven - Tossup between fish caught by yours truly and cooked within hours of landing or a juicy, crispy skinned roast chicken (the cook gets to eat those two little "oysters" of meat from the back near the thigh :22: ).Food hell - Bad catering.
