I’m working on some AVLT stuff and I’ve got some old Anthony Bourdain playing (courtesy of Netflix streaming service). He’s teaching a class and he decides to play an old chefs’ game with the students. (I’m no chef, but I’ve been in enough kitchens to have played the game several times.) It goes like this.
Tomorrow you die. You get one last meal. What do you eat?
My answer came easily, even the first time. Excellent prime rib, with my grandmother’s yorqshire pudding. You probably don’t know what that is, and that’s okay. I’m not trying to show-off.
It’s not helpful to think of Yorqshire pudding (though it’s probably supposed to be Yorkshire, I do it the was she did) as a pudding. It’s important to remember that there are lots of British dishes which are totally soild, and yet still called puddings. There’s a Wikipedia entry with a nice history, but the description is not so descriptive.
Here’s a decent picture, though.
