Top 10 Eats of 2009
Some people like to look back at the year to ponder, scrutinize and revel in their accomplishments.
I like to look back at the year to relive moments in time that I can’t forget because, well, they just tasted so darned good.
Yes, here’s my list of the top 10 dishes I had in 2009.
Oh, it was hard to narrow it down to just 10, believe me. I hemmed and hawed about which would make the cut and which wouldn’t because there were so many bites over the past 12 months that I truly savored.
In the end, I decided to limit it to the meals I ate out, rather than cooked at home. The dishes that made the list were ones that I still savor in my memory, again and again. They’re ones that I would rush out to eat once more in a heart beat. They are — in a word — unforgettable.
Here they are, in no particular order:
4. Casonsei (rectangular ravioli stuffed with veal sausage) with the unexpected, delightful addition of fresh Bing cherries at Quattro at the Four Seasons Silicon Valley in East Palo Alto.
