Food porn

It was too hot for Claudine a lusty 23 year old waitress at a French restaurant. She ran her hair through her natural blonde locks. Her firm but outsize breasts strained uncomfortably against her uniform. She looked at the peach sorbet being dished up by Thierry longingly...

Okay that was only a joke. What I really wanted to do was start a thread with the most fantastic fabulous meals in the world. Food pornography without the sex. Starting with my lunch today:-

Imagine the scene. 35 degrees in the shade but not uncomfotable because of a cooling breeze on the terrace of the restaurant. Shade is provided by lots of plane tees. The ambience and the service is delightfully informal - no patronising yards of nappery here.

Now for the food:

Appetiser - a plate full of unidentifiable yummy nibbly things that even the DCs like

Starter - Aubergine roule with goat's cheese
The children both had prawn and avocado profiteroles

Main course - DH had roasted rack of lamb with garlic clove confit. I had a chickeny thing with little bits of roast potato and something that resembled ratatouille but minus the tomatoes and the courgettes. Was delightful. The children had a bit of pave - which turned out to be a bit of steak with lots of wonderful bits on the side.

Pud - This was called an Assiette des Magnons - which was the house dessert. This was a dinner plate with a mini creme brulee (fab) a little lemon mousse (fab fab) a rasperry fruity thing (fab fab fab) and an apricot sorbet with a tangy coulis.

The wine was a bottle of local rose. I never have any time for rose unless it is warm, but it comes into its own anywhere really hot.

I am running out of adjectives. Join me in forgetting the farking diets and celebrating a fabulous meal.

Last night. Our wedding anniversary meal. We returned to a very very posh chinesy type restaurant, where we went for our first meal together, 7 years ago.
We had scallops in garlic , lobster, duck and then mains.
Oh I am salivating now.

Yes but I want to hear your fabulous meals so that we can all forget about the rain ... whether we're suffering it now or coming back to it next week ...

absolutement

Where is everyone ? Sexy food ? I can think of loads. Is it just ze lur-ver-ly Quattro and Oblomov who is food obsessed - surely not ?
I am thinking Apricot tarte, with big coffee or big creamy hot chocolate.
Yum, yum. Shall I continue. Is it me alone ?

Sorry oblomov - just us with the greed issues -

apricot tart is gorge - absolutely gorge

Oblomov Sat 21-Jul-07 07:44:45

Quattro, what a waste of a thread.
I can think of lots of MN saucy minx'es, but they don't want to join in food porn ?
What ?
We haven't even got to the chocolate banana's stage yet
Good food is nearly as good as good sex. Or you start with the food and then lead to the sex.
Now that sounds like a perfect day.

You know how there are some things you must never try again, because if you do you will always be trying to recapture a moment?

Trifle holds a special place in my heart for just that reason. Not just any trifle, but a lovingly home-made one, with lashings of sherry, home-made sponge, home-made jam, fresh fruit, whipped cream...and a couple, new lovers, in an unfurnished flat, on a hot summer afternoon...


Ahhhh memories...

The lightest, fluffiest, tastiest Tiramisu on a terrace in Morroco overlooking a valley with a river running through it, with a white and blue village in the distance and local children splashing and playing in it. The sun setting over in the distance.
