Serious Eats: Talk
Any requests? ....Oh, besides that....
Anyone have a dish that people (family, friends, dogs, etc.) constantly ask you to make for them or for a gathering, but you yourself don't like it at all?
My mother, who lives an hour away, visits pretty often. Me being the momma's boy I always have been and having been raised to always have food when people come over, cook for her and ask her what she wants. More often than not, it's fresh pasta (cavatelli, trofie, or orecchiette) with Genovese-style pesto. She loves this stuff and I just don't like it at all. But I make it anyway and I usually just have a sandwich while she eats it.
What about you guys/ladies?
