Delightful Dinner Companions

May 5th, 2010 at 01:56 pm

It's nearly dinner time again, and I am pondering. I seem to think about a lot of things, especially the topic of meals. And I was just thinking if one could invite anyone one wanted to, what would make a great dinner party.

On the Food Network during the holidays they show some of the celebrity cooks getting together for this and that, but I always wonder if they really are as friendly as it seems. I mean, as good as Paula Deen is, would she really make the kind of food Barefoot Contessa Ina Garten would approve of? Not to mention health person Ellie Krieger. I can only imagine Ellie tch, tch tching Paula and the butter and fat in her foods. Emeril probably would like about anything he could "Bam" at, however. Alton Brown would probably like to either tell how something was made, grown, or created or else find out how it came into existence. And jumping off the Food Network, would the late Julia Child, if she were still around, enjoy the spicy Cajun and Creole dishes served? Not to mention the late Frugal Gourmet Jeff Smith -- would he partake of some of the many things served not stir fried? I always remember him and his Wok. Would he enjoy the temptations of fried food? Or even...gulp...Ramen noodles?

I'm not sure if it would be the friendliest of dinners once the oven mitts came off, but it certainly makes for some interesting thoughts. I guess I better go get dinner ready so my dinner partner doesn't go hungry tonight.
