I have once again been tagged! This time, both new bloggers, Hélène at "Dans L'assiette de Mademoiselle Charlotte Et Cie" and Lolotte at "Le Blog-Notes De Lolotte" asked me to do this meme... Thanks for thinking of me!

Have fun reading it!

If I were... a vegetable, which one would it be?
A potato, because there are so many varieties and ways of preparing that marvelous vegetable!
e I love so many vegetables (Brussel sprouts, fennel, cauliflower, eggplant, courgettes, asparagus, etc...), I must say that it was very difficult to choose only one out of them all...

If I were... a fruit, which one would it be?
Berries of
any kind, whether it be blackberries, raspberries, cranberries, red currants, etc... I just love those delicious little fruits. Their flavor is very delicate, sweet and acidulated, their color wonderful and their perfume heavenly!

If I were... a spice, which one would it be?
Cinnamon. I love that spice! It is ideal when baking or cooking
and goes perfectly well with sweet or savory dishes.
As a spice freak, it was very difficult for me to think of
only one spice and forget the others (curry, 5 spice powder, cumin, Garam Massala, Za'atar, etc....)...

If I were... a herb, which one would it be?
Fresh basil. I particularly like the European variety in pestos and with pasta, and the Asian one (Holy/Thai Basil) in curr
ies, stir-fries or Vietnamese food.

If I were... a dessert, which one would it be?
A tart/pie ("Pumpkin Pie", "Pecan Pie", "Custard Tart", "Wine Tart", etc...) . Maybe "Lemon Meringue Tart" or any fruit tart/pie (apple, berry, apricot, prunes/quetsch, rhubarb, etc...).

If I were... a sweet, which one would it be?
I'm not re
ally a person who likes sweets, but I guess that I'd say "Sour Apple Rings" and anything chemical as well as regressive like Haribo or Youpi sweets...

If I were... a chocolate, which one would it be?
Simple, not to sweet, but with body.
I particularly like "Gianduja" (see infos). I'd say anything by Camille Bloch, Lindt, Favarger, Villars, Frey and

If I were... a jam, which one would it be?
Black currant jelly/jam. The best berry jam around...
There are many jams I like like apricot jam or black currant jam, but I think that this one is one of the best, because it's not too sweet nor too sickly.

If I were... a cuisine, which one would it be?
The American cuisine, because it's multi-faceted and multi-ethnic (Asian, European, Jewish, Middle Eastern, Creole, South American, etc...).
In that way, I don't have to choose between cuisines that are all different, yet equal quality- and taste-wise!

If I were... a silverware item, which one would it be?
A spoon. In that way
I can eat anything (desserts, soups, curries, pasta, etc...) and in quantities, he, he!

If I were... an alcoholic drink, which one would it be?
Although I very much like wine, I would choose the sweet kind (Porto, Bailey's, Amaretto, Dessert Wines, etc...) as I like to drink in small quantities and prefer to enjoy my alcohol as if it would be a dessert...

If I were... a non-alcoholic drink, which one would it be?
Water, but also tea and coffee (that's more than one, I know...).
I drink a lot of water on a daily basis a
nd could not live without it. It is for my well-being.

If I were... the owner of a restaurant, which one would it be?
A diner. Those places are convivial and serve old-fashioned family-style food (doughnuts, hamburgers, rice pudding, pies, meatloafs, muffins, tarts, cornbread, etc...).
I love what has a retro touch. such places make me dream!
