That looks... exquisite. Is that something found only locally in Italy? Or would I be able to find that out here in an Italian restaurant?
It's a regional dish from north-eastern Italy. However, as far as I've seen, italian restaurants in the US (I assume you live there) can offer an enormous variety of food depending on the cook. Thus if you can find a cook or a restaurant owner who comes from north-eastern Italy, you may be able to order that dish. They're also called "Casoncelli".
Chicken mole in Mexico City. The stuff you get in the States just doesn't compare. The fact that I've never been able to recapture it helps. I'd never heard of it before, and I was skeptical. Chocolate and chicken? It was like losing my virginity.
"If you had to choose one thing." Sounds a bit restrictive to me. As if you were telling me : "Choose one man until the end of your life". But I could imagine being tied up to a tree on an island as a slave, with having only one choice : WHAT I WANNA EAT : Sushi ! Japonese food is very healthy, even if I really have no weight to lose.
And, to choose something sweet : The OREO TIRAMISU
I can survive without meat.
I cannot without sweetness
