The Great Book of lists chapter 3.1 : A party of choice

I’m going to have a dinner party and these are the people I’m planning to invite:

Beethoven and Mozart – they will provide the music, alternately, complete with orchestra or string quartet

Jamie Oliver and my Dad – Jamie will cook our five-course meal, while my Dad will be the sous-chef. My Dad would love that!

Gandhi, Martin Luther King and Ninoy Aquino – would be great to have them discuss about freedom, democracy and how to be patient

William Shakespeare and Jane Austen – William will write me a sonnet while Jane and I talk about our Mr. Darcy

Morecambe and Wise – they’ll provide the comic double act

Food for the Soul (and the Stomach)

Tell us about your favourite meal, either to eat or to prepare. Does it just taste great, or does it have other associations?

Him Indoors and I always love our food. We both love cooking and eating – that’s why we’re both healthy and round LOL. I cook during the week – pasta, Filipino food like adobo and mechado, soup, salad and anything easy and fast to cook. He cooks during the weekend – in his own time, he plans what he will cook, makes a list, buys the ingredients and cook while listening to football or rugby on the radio. I have to admit, he’s a better cook than me! He cooks beef bourguinone, Sunday roast, cordon blue, chicken Kiev, etc. We also love eating out – Indian, Greek, Chinese, Italian, French. Anyway, here are some of the photos of the things we have cooked. Enjoy!
