What do you make him or her to really knock the socks off their feet? Do you have one signature dish that you know and love, or would you try something new in their honor?

I let him work for a pack of Ramen, water to cook it with, and the power to do so. Then, when all the work is done, I'll take it and feed it to the dogs that laid in the back room doing nothing and explain to him that it's for the greater good. Next, when he decides to go hunting for some dinner, I'll give him a butter knife because guns are bad. When he finally kills something with the knife, I'll outlaw the knife and say he got his dinner illegally, and I'll just destroy the meat.

And then the kicker: I'll keep doing it for a while, and sure his feelings will get hurt.. but in the end, when I invite him back for dinner he'll come running back because he thinks I'll do something different the second time around.


(Just kidding. Yeah, that was a bitter political metaphor. In all reality, I would cook some bad ass baby back ribs, cook up some homegrown veggies, get some beer from a friend that makes it and feed him a good meal. A big enough meal to really get to know him...)

I have a few signature things...I'd probably offer up a choice of 3-4 for them to choose from, or make one of my soups and an entree, so I can get two specialties in.

I would make great big steaks with creamy mushroom polenta and lemony wilted kale. It's the one thing I cook lately that turns out great every time and I wouldn't be all nervous about the timing and results

This is going to be pretty hard to top; you've outdone yourself! Absolutely priceless!

As for myself, I think this would be too much pressure & I'd worry about giving him the runs.

Wow you eat much better than I. I'd be maxed out with the lemony wilted kale.

What can I do to have you make this for me? Oh, I know, I'll be the PRESIDENT of your fan club!

Or at least you can give me the recipe for the polenta & kale, pretty please?

GONE! GONE!
Oh my! Umm... Probably my really good veggie-quinoa soup and some fresh bread. Simple but hearty and made with care.

It's super simple!

Just get the polenta that comes in a bag and is the rough cut grain (not grits and not the premade stuff). Cook it according to package directions in chicken stock or broth instead of water. While it's cooking, saute mushrooms in butter, salt, pepper with a wee bit of garlic.

Wash some kale, melt a small bit of butter (about a tsp - tbs depending on your tastes) in a heavy pan. Toss in the kale and keep tossing it around to coat with butter until it turns "wilted" and slightly darker green. Squeeze on some lemon.

Scoop the polenta into a bowl while it's still porridge-like, top with mushrooms. Serve kale with a sprinkle of kosher salt.

YUM!

That I can handle! Thanks for telling me how you do it! Gosh, I'm hungry again just reading about it. It may take me a while before I get to make it, but I will let you know how it went!

Anything laced with poison. The bastard deserves to pay for his crimes (I am not from US, just thought I have to clarify that). I mean, I am not capable to actually killing anyone, but a girl can dream.

I would rather invite someone I truly respect (like a Nobel Prize winner or a writer) and cook a really nice five-course dinner.

If it were Mao... I'd just serve him some poison.

Xi Jinping on the other hand and I'd insist he bring the safety inspector and the food quality dude, I'd make them any dish made with poor quality oils (hopefully this oil will have been "recycled oil" big problem at the moment in China is the sloppy second oils from restaurants and re-bottled causing many illnesses) and all sorts of genetically modified foods and meat injected with oodles of hormones and antibiotics.

I would then make me some shrimp sauteed in coconut oil with a heavy handed amount of dill over some stir fried (but uber crunchy) broccoli on a bed of brown rice made in a mushroom and garlic broth. I'd serve it with a dry white white wine.

Ok... then I'd offer both dishes to them and deny them the good stuff because it's better for me (and I'll have to remember that I need to be greedy) to keep the good food.
