Inspired by Charlie Wayne’s thread, I ask the Dope mind:
What is the best meal(s) you’ve ever cooked? Please feel free to add for whom, if you like. And a recipe, if you like.
My best meal is a cassoulet with chorizo, roast chicken, and pork chops. When I was making it, it took two days for me to make (one day to roast and disjoint the damn chicken, soaking beans overnight, and then the second day to finish up the recipe).
This became our official “second Christmas Day” meal when my grandmother, mom, and stepdad would visit me as an adult. I’d feed whichever other family showed up, too. That cassoulet served a LOT of people. And was delicious with crusty bread and a salad with a nice homemade vinaigrette dressing.
