Eating Our Way Through Memphis

In the Comments, Sharon asks us if we were able to enjoy some "Vitamin CH" and favorite beverages on Valentine's Day.

But of course. The Russian Kiss Martini at the Peabody nailed both criteria in one blow. Besides that, as is our wont, the quality of our Memphis memories will be directly proportional to the number of our gormandizing exploits.

Besides the aforementioned sushi, we have dined on ribs and pulled pork from Rendezvous, Black-eyed Pea cake (from Alex Haley's family recipe), and a banana cream pie, listed as one of the 100 best desserts in the country by Epicurean. Henry enjoyed a hand-held crepe filled with strawberries, powdered sugar and dulce de leche.

Emeril disciple Felicia Suzanne served us salmon deviled eggs with Arkansas caviar, and barbecued shrimp and grits.

At BB King's on Beale Street, we had gumbo, fried pickles, and more ribs as well as hot electric blues. And we also feasted on Denny's Grand Slam Breakfast and Space Alien Pancakes.

There was Pizza, Lasagna, Veal di Napoli, and Calamari. We ended the sweet day with more Dulce De Leche and something called the "Sweet Sarah Bernhardt Chocolate Cloud."
