Lots of great threads here in the Café. But, what are your favorite foods? We all have to eat at some point, right?

Aside from all the mandatory Italian style pasta dishes that us cyclists eat unconsciously, I eat a lot of Asian foods. Thai green curry with mock duck, Tibetan beef dumplings (momo), spring and egg rolls galore. Vietnamese and Korean BBQ is also very good.

Have to mention Mexican and South American as well, of which there isn't much I won't eat. Flautas, chimichangas, chili rollenos, enchiladas, burritos, tacos, chips & salsa, tons of tamales and arepas. The end-all-be-all being the famous Cuban sandwich! But you have to eat it in Cuba in the back of a '51 Buick, just isn't the same otherwise.

Mediterranean; gyros, hummus, tabbouleh, baba ganoush, spinach pie.

This time of year I'll be hunting pheasant to stock up for the winter. The only animal that I actively hunt and eat. I make pheasant dishes that would bring Jacques Anquetil back to life.:D

I love all seafood lobster, scallops, clams, oysters, conch, crab, shrimps- If you ever come to jamaica there's a town called middle quaters it is the best place to get shrimp in jamaica it is ridiculously good. I also like the occasional hamburger, I like mexican food, but as the previous poster said wine and tapas great combination. I do like Jamaican food, It takes time to get used to but it's delicious.

I grew up on BBQ'd pork shoulder with a vinegar and red pepper sauce, but I will eat it just about any way it is cooked. In fact, as we speak, I have a 4.7lb Boston **** in the oven that I put salt and pepper on, seared on all sides, then added thyme, rosemary, garlic, and orange slices, covered, and put in the oven on 324 for a total of 4.5 hours. With that, we will be eating smoked brie mashed potatoes, french cut green beans with garlic and peppers, and fresh sourdough bread.

I like food.

Oh yeah, lover the pork shoulder. I usual get a big one, 15 pounds. Cover it with this stuff http://www.buttrub.com/ put it on a rack in a roasting pan. Pour white wine in the bottom of the roasting pan with a bunch of aromatics. Roast for 12 hours at 225. Serve with a bottle of Bourbon

My favourite type of food is hands down Mexican. I also love seafood and will try almost anything(but I am not Andrew Zimmern).

I eat largely Taiwanese and Chinese food nowadays. My wife is a Taiwanese chef who comes from a cooking family (she herself was trained to degree level in her country) and she cooks the most stunning authentic eastern food.

Anyone living in the UK that has been to the East, whether it's China, Korean, Japan, Taiwan etc. will know the eastern food in this country is nothing like the real thing.

Favourite food of all time: ice cream!

I am also partial to a white chocolate cranberry tart at one of the local restaurants, and bread and butter puddings. Yeah, I have a sweet tooth!

For main meals, it depends on where I am living. I get a hankering for lamb of any sort when in North America, especially the States but also Canada. Doesn't matter what kind of lamb (rack, roast, chops, shanks), just as long as comes with mint jelly and mashed potato.

Other favourites include seafood, sushi (especially in Japan), the Italian-Asian blend that Australians are very good at cooking, Mexican, tagines, and pizza (especially the prosciutto, fig and brie pizza from the Secret Stash in Crested Butte).

i made a great 10 bean soup the other day. i also tossed a bunch of different
vegetables. no meat in this one, just a little olive oil. with some good bread and
wine/beer you are set. recipes are just the starting point, as i never follow them
as stated. food is one of life's pleasures for sure.
