The Complete 100 Favorite Dishes List

Boy, I could use a Fernet.

There are few better ways of establishing how much - and how well -- you've been eating than compiling a list of the 100 standout dishes. Somewhere around entry 43, I was pretty sure I wouldn't be able to come up with enough dishes to reach the 100-mark. (I wonder if scholars will ever examine unfinished blog lists the way they now study unfinished novels and symphonies.)

By entry 87, I realized I was going to run out of slots before I'd named every local dish I love. The 100 dishes which made the cut are listed on the following pages.
