If you could only eat one meal before you died, what would it be?
It sounds simple, right? It really isn’t. Death has always fascinated me. This idea that you are gone for an eternity; therefore, to consider what you would consume before you vanished for an eternity is a question that each person must answer for themselves. So ask yourself, what would you eat
Let me start out by saying Jodi and Ned are absolutely adorbs. They are the cutest little culinary couple I’ve ever met. They are about to open their restaurant on May 20, and I can’t wait to see them set the Austin culinary scene on fire. They are surely talented enough. He brings French influence in his cooking, and she makes down-home pastries. They met while attending the Culinary Institute in New York, dated for a while, became roomies, and then Jodi went to London for a year to work. The story of how they reconciled is both hilarious and cute, but something I promised not to repeat. I think the beauty in love stories is sharing them with very few people, and I feel lucky to know Jodi and Ned’s story. As fate would have it, Jodi returned to New York and ended up marrying Ned. They have a beautiful daughter named Billie. (Could that get any damn cuter?)
I asked them what they would eat if they could only have one more meal.
Jodi: “Oh wow. That’s a toughie. Well, I would probably say Cheese Enchiladas and a Brownie Sundae. I may be a pastry chef, but I love simple desserts.”
Ned: “Man, you must want a solid gut when you die. [laughs]. Well, I would have to say a beef tongue sandwich with mustard on rye. My mom used to trick us growing up and tell us that the tongue was bologna. [laughs]. It’s not showy or flashy, but it’s the best of the best.”
