I'd like to ask of you: what's the best meal you've ever had?

Maybe it wasn't even the food, but the company, or something else that made the moment.
Actually, I think I prefer doing the cooking - it's something of an artistic outlet, something I deeply enjoy) - but not just for myself, else it seems a little pointless. Give me an office potluck or a party to aim for, though, and I'll spend hours tweaking the little flavors. ^_^

Pad thai's meant to be a quick throw-together dish, but I once spent something like 90 mins on one wokfull, chopping up the shrimp, adjusting the tanginess, sweetness, and piquance with the aid of various citrus juices, spices, and so on, seeing how those wound up once cooked into the sauce. It was worth every second. ^_^

Of course, I'll always be able to make room for my mother's German applecake.. a sort of fluffy shortbread base, if you can visualise that, with a tart apple sauce, then sliced apple on top, finished with brown sugar and allspice. Lovely fresh out of the oven, with a bit of good vanilla ice cream..
