BEST OF 2007

Zorra at "Kochtopf" (Spain) and Sandra at "Un Tocco Di Zenzero" (Italy) had the great idea to create an outstanding recipe collection of foodbloggers' best recipe of 2007.

To participate, each of you has to choose his/her best and most impressive recipe of year 2007, write a little something about it and send the informations needed to either Sand
ra or Zorra (see rules)...

I must say that it was an extremely difficult task for me to make my choice and pick only one recipe within all the gorgeous ones I have posted this year. I cherish all of the recipes on my blog, because I generally only talk about the dishes I find particularly scrumptious. A real dilemma!!!

I went through this year's posts and saw so many stunning dishes that I could potentially elect for this game. My year was very much marked by various wonderful foods such as "Panettone", "Wholewheat & Rye Sourdough Bread", "Tender potato Bread", "Lahmacuns", "Smoked Salmon & Cream Cheese Bagels", "Chicken In Vanilla Sauce", "Pork Chile Verde", "Chocolate Intensity Cake", "Luscious Lemon Bars", "Deadly Blondies", "Earl Grey Chocolate Mousse" or "Tiramisù Mousse & Lemon Curd Tart" (to name only a few)...

Finally, after a lot of thinking, I decided that my recipe of the year 2007 would be that excellent "Vietnamese Chicken And Grapefruit Salad" which I made for one of the "Dinner Parties" I attended.

I love the foods of Southeast Asia and especially of Vietnam. Along with the cuisines of Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia, anything that is Vietnamese ravishes my palate. I love it's matchless freshness, subtility and mindblowing variety of flavors as well as textures!
This "Vietnamese Chicken & Grapefruit Salad" is a culinary experience in itself, a real treasure of the Vietnamese cuisine (see infos) as it tastes incredible and is really, really wonderful! It is a delicate and exquisite dish that has fantastic aromas and is a mindblowing assemblage of holiday-like flavors. With it's crunchiness, gorgeous and incomparable freshness, it's delicate fragrances, sweet and savoriness, you'll be conquered! This exceptional dish will leave it's mark on you and you'll see that you'll come back asking for more!
