Unlike many younger people these days, I don’t normally take pictures of my food when eating out, or post them on social media (I am not on Facebook or Twitter anyway). But this time, on our cruise to Alaska last summer, I just had to capture this. It was the final night of the cruise, and dinner was especially fancy. I ordered the duck, and this is what was placed on the beautiful table in front of me.
The food actually looked too pretty to eat! So, what do you think that item is at the edge of the plate, at what pilots call the “twelve o’clock” position? I turned the plate around twice before sampling it, but I had no clue until I took a bite. It was potatoes! I likened it to a bit of hash-browns, cleverly formed into a shape like a pear. It was very good, and I know that this will be one of the most memorable meals I’ll ever have.
