What one food would you 'choose'?

Imagine that you are somehow 'marooned' and discover an endless supply of just one foodstuff.

It might be meat, fish, vegetable or confectionery - but no 'combination' such as sausage and mash - it has to be just sausage or mash.

It could be lobster - and you are allowed to have it cooked (if necessary) - it has to be edible.

Marshmallows or pickled herring - anything you fancy - but it has to be your only food - for ever.

I can't decide - I like roast lamb (I rarely get it) but would I want it for the rest of my life?

Wholemeal bread and butter (if that counts as one choice), otherwise roast potatoes

(Hope you are having roast lamb this Sunday G CPTN - if you cant have it at Easter, when can you have it?)

If any of us were constrained to one foodstuff, I suspect it wouldn't be for long anyway.

I like my lamb 'pink' (or at least not overcooked) but with a 'crusty' skin.

Don't forget non-English dishes such as Chinese (noodles) or Indian (biryani) - though strictly speaking a biryani without meat or shellfish is just a pulao I believe.

The question is hypothetical - one of personal satisfaction rather than long-term survival.

A Biryani isn't just one foodstuff, but I'd go for that.

The droppings from sea gulls might be quite nourishing

Whale

Whale steaks, whale burgers, whale bacon, whale jerky, whale stew, whale pate'..

You can do a lot with whale meat, and take it from one who's tried going after the only thing better, they are far more plentiful than unicorns.

If you choose package food make sure you have a crowbar and hacksaw to open said package or you will starve.
Anyway for me Mum's Rabbit Pie.

Unfortunately, or fortunately, a faster death on a desert island.


"Protein poisoning was first noted as a consequence of eating rabbit meat exclusively, hence the term, "rabbit starvation". Rabbit meat is very lean, commercial rabbit meat has 50–100 g dissectable fat per 2 kg (live weight). Based on a carcass yield of 60%, rabbit meat is around 8.3% fat."


To eek out a longer existence - probably potatoes.

I would invite Peter Mandleson to join me and serve:

Fugu: The fish more poisonous than cyanide. The Japanese delicacy fugu, or blowfish, is so poisonous that the smallest mistake in its preparation could be fatal. But Tokyo's city government is planning to ease restrictions that allow only highly trained and licensed chefs to serve the dish.

....on the day the chef was on his day off!
