Ahhite. Get up in here with your Perfect Meals, Lungites.

APM will say authentic European, with an honorable mention to Japanese and Korean.

APM likes how the Japanese approach a meal. Small portions, flavorful ingredients, multiple courses. The Koreans have bigger portions and don't do so many crazy flavors, but it's still awesome.

OTOH, downhome European is hard to beat. Authentic French (not the fancy stuff), Italian, Bulgarian, Greek, etc. is so good.

The difference between European food culture and what we do in the US is these effers know how to enjoy a frikkin' meal. It's slow. And it's savored. Yes, there's wine or beer. Yes, there's coffee at the end. But it's the experience that matters and no one is in a rush.

So ima say APM's perfect meal is with Mrs. PAW, at a brasserie in the South of France, with maybe paella (they eat it in France too), a carafe of white wine, and duck with frites fried in duck fat. And a nice dessert with cafe (espresso) at the end.

Sounds like an ice-cold Bud Light would go great with that.

but for reals, nothing beats catching a fish, cleaning it and eating it.

I'm kind of a picky eater, so most fancy stuff is a little out there for me, plus I really enjoy the process of cooking. in a social setting like what you are talking about, with the way the europeans enjoy a meal and aren't in a rush. i love to have the cooking going on while guests are around.


Soul food.

and finished to 125 degrees indirectly on a cooler grill then allowed to rest for 10 minutes. Meat prepared with coarse sea salt and cracked pepper only, but served with a a pat of garlic butter. Paired with a cabernet.

Sides - I really don't care. I finished before the ribeye was done cooking.

a full salmon filet cooked with garlic, pepper, salt and olive oil on a 350 degree egg indirectly with the skin side down and finished with a torch to sear the surface. Again, I would make sides, and they would be delicious, but not the focus.

(got the back hair to prove it)

Not sure I'd put Italian (northern or southern) food in the perfect meal category, not sure why...

Greek food, hellz yes

also love Japanese...i could see basing a 'perfect meal' around sushi

other than those generalities, not sure I can really pin down a perfect meal.

and u is rite about the 'pace' and almost 'ritual' of a meal out there, and 100% sign me up

the individual steps/courses discussed in this and the other thread are necessary, tho

I love good food. Especially and no particular order...Italian, Messican, Thai and seafood of some sort.

I've joked in the past my death row meal would be from Legal Seafood in Boston.

A dozen kukamato oysters on the half shell, clam chowdah and a lobstah roll. And of course several DIPA's.

Good food is just that. Be it out or at home. Be it a burger, pie or whatever.

You owe it to yourself to fly 10,000 miles to Australia. Those are some of the best oysters I've ever eaten. Not too big and kind of small, but they more than make up for it in taste.

and setting/location. If you're just talking about good food, overall I'd go with Greek if you have to go European. French and Italians got nothing on the Greeks when it comes to food. Or how long you spend eating it ;)

I'd go back to Greece just for the food. Really that was the best part. I still make a mean Greek salad, and I have yet to have an authentic Greek salad in the US, even in a Greek restaurant.

But my ideal meal stands, as listed below. My ideal "food" overall is Greek though. But I'm not eating Greek as my ideal favorite meal.

Hope you get where I'm coming from here.

If we're talking ideal meal. Then again, APM is pretty utilitarian with food on a daily basis. It's fuel. APM tries to burn what he takes in. APM can eat the same thing every day for months and be fine with it.

Good meals are experiences. The food is just one part of it.
