Fashion Week in London - let's talk stylish food

So, as you may or may not be aware, London is currently hosting Fashion Week, an enormous bi-yearly event that takes place in the major fashion capitals of the world: Paris, Milan, New York and our own capital. Being far more a foodie than a 'dedicated follower of fashion', however, I thought it would be fun to get people talking about what they think are the most stylish, sexy dishes in the world. What's it for you? Baked pears? Oysters, perhaps? A square of baklava dripping in honey?

Personally, I've found a lot of inspiration for beautiful food presentation in some of Jamie's recipes, and to this day I think one of the most stylish things I've ever served was a fig salad from the first Jamie book I ever owned - http://www.jamieoliver.com/recipes/frui … -the-world

I'm also incredibly fond of the Glasgow potato scones and salmon recipe. So simple, and so easy to make pretty when served at breakfast beside a superb cup of coffee. http://www.jamieoliver.com/recipes/fish … ked-salmon

Every foodie has a slightly different taste in food presentation though, I've found, and something I'd find really interesting is seeing any really beautifully-presented dishes you guys have created. The easiest way to do this is to use the submit form on Jamie's blog at http://officialjamieoliver.tumblr.com/.

weird as it may seem to those that have heard me talk about and blog  with pictures about bbq / grilling or  meat in general .  the sexiest / stylish dish I have had in the last couple years was a salad.

For me, not only stylish but exotic, was caviar (my first taste) and port fed Stilton.  All available at a very posh buffet luncheon given for VIP customers from over the world, at my firm.

The caviar was just a word before trying it, designed for those with money.  The port fed Stilton was so delicious I went back to try and scrounge some more - with success!  I've made this myself since.

Re: Fashion Week in London - let's talk stylish food

This for me is one of the most beautiful things http://www.jamieoliver.com/bloggers/vie … p?id=60323

I actually photograph every jam or jelly I make but this was the most beautiful.

Tattie Scones, sexy. Erm Actually thinking about it with the coffee, Hestonís Vanilla bacon.
The sexiest food I have had was from Clare Smyth at Gordon's.
http://www.gordonramsay.com/royalhospitalroad/menus/
pictures and menu.
Back at home caramelised banana CrŤme Bavoire has been a winner!
For some reason Vanilla and cream sounds sexy.
Ha it seems to be all French.
Sticky Toffee Pudding Clotted Cream, after sex, heaven, seriously try it. Watch it though itís very hot.
Probably a nice Asian salad, colourful, aromatic, tasty, healthy, sexy. When  British Lobster is involved in the mix, well thatís it.
Then its chocolate, William Curley, the dessert bar, this places oozes sex!!

Using Amedi in his work, http://www.amedei.com/ a bar of No. 9 well thatís a bit like Love Potion number 9 for those of us old enough to remember the song.
On a Jamie note: The lightest Gnochi, via 15 London, was just that , sublime! Both 15 Cornwall meals have also had sexy elements to them.
