Liquid nourishment

In the name of research, and I know you are a small sample: What’s your favourite food, your favourite dish? Money and/or cooking skills not withstanding. The one you might steal if you had no other means to obtain it. The one that makes you swoon. Which vegetable and fruit would you take to that desert island? Remember: Tomato is a fruit not a vegetable. Pigs don’t count.

If you show me yours I will show you mine.




  1. Chocolate

  2. CREAM. The thicker, the better. Growing up we used to get cream from the farmer. It was so thick that after a couple days when I turned the jar upside down, it didn’t budge. I’d eat that on my cornflakes without diluting it. Cornflakes & Shredded Wheat were about the only cereals on the market back then. (I was always too skinny. Very helpful now.)

    Vegetables & fruit. We had a garden & lots of fruit trees. Loved all of it.

    I have a house full of guests (daughter & family). I have a sprained ankle & can’t walk except with crutches– with difficulty– so it’s easier to crawl. That’s a blessing. I can’t sit with my foot up ALL DAY.

    • Cream. Will send you recipe for “Eton Mess”. Eton as in ‘college’. Dead easy. No effort.

      “A garden and lots of fruit trees”. Sounds like paradise to me.

      Oh, Cynthia, you are so funny. Next time I sprain ankle I will remember your advice that it’s “easier to crawl”. Why the hell, considering that I sprain my ankles all the time, didn’t I think of that?

    • That’s a bit modest, Ramana. I thought you’d come up with something more luscious like those Mangoes you mentioned a couple of months ago.

  4. Small??? Me? Not hardly but – fruit – nectarine, veg – potato and dish? some form of medium-hot curry. Not on the island – artichokes and avacados along with Italian-style green beans – the wide, flat kind.

    • Chuck, having been a rabbit in a previous life (not caught by headlight) I adore fruit and vegetables. Cherries currently in season. Costing a king’s ransom. Unbelievable thinking that once upon a time I just picked them meandering along a country lane on a Sunday afternoon. Artichokes? Oh, yes. Their charm being in the unfolding. Avocados I too love. Though they are unreliable bastards. At least in this country. You never know what you’ll find. Inside.

  5. U I lived for nearly 4 decades within easy reach of the artichoke capital of the world – Castroville. Also the garlic capital – Gilroy. Great weekend trips to Monmterey always included stops in Castroville to load up on artichokes, Brussel sprouts and garlic. Long befiore I bacame shackman I was a fruit & veg lover

    • On this bit of information alone I might reconsider and move to Castroville. Throwing caution to the wind: I haven’t even looked up yet on the map. Wherever the artichoke takes me is just fine.
