Lunchtime Poll Topic #9

There's a new show on Food Network called "The Best Thing I Ever Ate." Chefs and other Foodie personalities from the network talk about the best food they've ever eaten (It's usually done in categories, like best dessert, for example).

So, that's today's LTPT.

What's the best food you've ever eaten?

This is a hard one. There are four foods that are tied for me. I truly can't choose among them, so I'm listing them all.

1. Nam Sod from Thai Garden in Keene, New Hampshire. It's shredded chicken, red onions, cucumbers, shredded carrots, lemon grass and peanuts in a sweet and spicy red chili and garlic sauce. It's served cold on a bed of lettuce leaves.

2. Pepperoni pizza from Luigi's in Lewiston, Maine. First of all, pizza from anywhere in New England is far and away better than pizza anywhere else in the world, including Italy (trust me--I've had pizza everywhere). This pizza is the best of the best. It's greasy, and they're cooked on cast iron pans so you get a slightly crispy yet greasy bottom crust (almost like a pan pizza, but they're not deep crusts). And they put ham slices under the cheese, no matter what kind of pizza you order.

3. Fresh pineapple. Enough said.

4. Nutella. I almost listed fudge brownies drizzled with Nutella, but I realized that as much as I adore a good brownie, it's really the Nutella I love. Case in point: My friend Stephanie brought over brownies on my birthday. I was able to resist them. I bought some Nutella for the kids. I ate the whole freakin' jar with a spoon, even though it made me violently ill.

So, what's yours?
