Foods: Best Ever

By Dom Nozzi

The foods found on this list represent the best culinary treats I’ve ever tasted in my life. Many are on this list because they were homemade by me or others (particularly my mother). I have not eaten red meat since the early 1980s, and this list reflects that. Of course, many of these meals are greatly enhanced with a glass of a big, hearty Italian red wine. So many yummy foods to sample or cook, and so little time!

These foods were selected based on:

Delicious taste.

Pleasant mouth-feel.

Pleasant aroma.

Being healthy.

Their ability to provide an energizing, uplifting feeling.

Unique, interesting, memorable taste.

  • Cedar-smoked salmon

I urge you to email me ( or leave a
comment if you have a suggested addition or subtraction from this list. Or if
you have any other thoughts about this list.


Each list in this blog contains my own personal opinions
based on my personal experiences. I acknowledge that there may be a need to add
or subtract from these lists (or to create a new subject list), and I welcome
such suggestions. The lists are not ordered from higher to lower quality. Each
list is a work in progress.
