 50 Things to Eat Before You Die

  • by The_Stir, on Tue Aug 3, 2010 2:04pm PDT

1.    Chicago-style deep dish stuffed pizza with every topping imaginable  

no fish or mushrooms and maybe this would be okay 

2.    Caviar (local and sustainable, of course!) 

nope not any day

3.    Fried chicken and waffles

sounds all right

4.    Just-picked, vine-ripened heirloom tomatoes with fresh basil and mozzarella di bufala on crusty bread.

I guess this would be okay, but I still think just the tomatoes with onion on bread and butter are still my favorite.

5.    Perfect scrambled eggs with crème fraiche and chives

I don’t know what creme fraiche is!!!

6.    French press coffee with real cream

I could handle this. But can I add sugar???

7.    Champagne and strawberries

Have always wanted to try this every since I have watched Pretty Woman.

8.    Steak tartare and fresh arugula with a drizzle of oil


9.    Hot dog from a street cart with all the fixings


10.  Authentic Vietnamese pho soup with beef, rice noodles, sprouts, fresh herbs, and sriracha (perfect for when you’re feeling under the weather!)


11.  Spicy tuna sushi roll topped with avocado

no way no how I don’t do raw fish

12.  Fried soft shell crab

I don’t do seafood

13.  Mayo-rich lobster roll

same as above

14.  Baklava (Middle Eastern filo pastry filled with walnuts and honey)

always wondered what this was

15.  S’mores by the campfire

or by kitchen stove!!! both ways work for me!!

16.  Churros dipped in melted chocolate

almost anything dipped in chocolate!! Not raw fish!!!!

17.  Bagel with cream cheese and lox

okay have had the bagel and cheese but what is lox???

18.  Ice-cold shake


19.  Sweet potato fries fried in truffle oil

have had sweet potato fries does this count??

20.  Anything with truffle salt

where do you get this and how much does it cost??

21.  Escargot drenched in garlic butter

I think this rates in the seafood category

22.  Beignets right out of the fryer, dusted with powdered sugar

Is this a pastry?? okay I would try it

23.  Real strawberry ice cream

oh yeah with fresh fresh strawberries

24.  Fresh-caught, head-on prawns over homemade pasta (preferably eaten in Italy)

25.  Chocolate-filled croissants with cappuccino on a Sunday morning

26.  Pork belly

30.  Kansas City-style BBQ ribs dripping with sauce

44.  Homemade gnocchi in tomato cream sauce

45.  Butter lettuce from the farmers’ market drizzled with balsamic vinegar and a few drops of really good olive oil

close to the way mom use to make it, maybe not as FANCY
