Reader Tearitup offered up the following suggestion for a great post topic:
Thinking back on 2009, what was your best food moment? Something you cooked at home, something you had in a restaurant, a new ingredient discovery. What? No need to limit it to just one thing…
I have two best food moments in 2009:
#1 was going to the Hmong Marketplace in St Paul. An experience I never had before with foods I had never even seen before while eating with one of the area’s premiere foodies. There was nothing like wandering up and down looking in awe at items which had names that meant nothing and being totally lost in a world where the communication medium was as simple as the smells and sights of what I enjoy most–food. That reminds me. I need to get back there and soon.
#2 was going to Girvan Grille in Brooklyn Park, several times, to enjoy the hottest and best tasting wings in the world. While I paid for eating 20 of these wings later, the sauce is phenomenal and needs to be bottled for use in our own homes–because, well, the sauce I have had since that night has appeared in chili numerous times. The only problem with these wings is that nothing else even compares.
So, what is your best food moment of 2009? Go ahead and share on and happy new year to you all!
