Ranking the food

A lot of people have asked: What are your favorites?

It led me to wonder how I would rank the dishes I’ve cooked so far. The scale is easy: How likely am I to eat/make them again? The caveat being – some of the dishes may not have turned out great on the first go-round, but would I try to cook them again?

Here’s where we’re at:

  2. Indian feast (India)
