If you’ll ever get the question “If You Could Choose to Have Dinner with a Historical Figure, Who Would It Be?”, would you then consider their favourite meal?Maybe you’ve dreamed about how it would be to spend time with your biggest role model. But have you thought about what to eat? What if you like completely different things?
If You’d Want to Dine with a President of The United States
If you would choose to have dinner with Abraham Lincoln for instance, that would be quite a poor idea. Why? Well, because he was actually more of a breakfast person. So if you would share a bite with him, he would be happy to join you if you served him some apples, coffee and bacon. Oh, and maybe some eggs too.
If You Believe in the Evolution
If you thought you would share a casual dinner with Charles Darwin, you better think again. Darwin was actually a man of fine dining and his favourite food was a dish made out of armadillo. According to him, it tasted like duck but way better. Rumour also has it, that all of the species he discovered, he tasted. So, if you’re not the adventurous type when it comes to exotic dining, you’d might want to reconsider your company…
If You’re a Fan of English Literature
Oscar Wilde, however, would never say no to some roast duck. And if that somehow wasn’t affordable, he would go for some simpler meals as well.
If You Can’t Get Enough of Horror Movies
If your role model is Alfred Hitchcock (wait, it would be scary if it was though) you should actually bake him a pie if you would want him to join you for dinner. His favorite pie was a ham pie with onions, egg and milk.
If You Aspire to Become an Author
Would you prefer to share a meal with Mark Twain perhaps? Then you better like oysters, because that was his favourite dish of all time. He loved oyster soup, fried oysters, stewed oysters…you name it. So, if you don’t like oysters but still would like to dine with one of the world’s greatest authors, then Oscar Wilde would suit you better.
If You’re a Fan of Classical Music
Mozart would accept your dinner invitation, no doubt, if you were to serve him liver dumplings and sauerkraut. Oh, and he wouldn’t mind if you threw in some fart jokes over the dinner and challenged him to a game of billiard afterwards. Then maybe, he would feel comfortable playing the piano for you.
If You’re Still Searching for the RIght Literary Company
If neither Oscar Wilde nor Mark Twain would make a good literary companion for you, how about Virginia Woolf? She had a soft side for French cuisine and if you would make her Boeuf en Daube a la Nicoise, she would run to your dinner table in no time.
If You Want to Know Everything About Equations
If you would like to dine with Albert Einstein, never ever serve him meat. He actually considered himself a herbivore and the easiest way to please him would be to cook him some pasta.
If You Can’t Get The 9:th Symphony Out of Your Head
If you’d think you should make a soup for Ludwig van Beethoven, you’re definitely on the right track, but you better be cautious. Beethoven was passionate about soup, but he was also very judgemental and he didn’t think that anyone could make a fine soup. So, if you’re insecure about your soup cooking skills, it would be better to just serve him some mac and cheese, because believe it or not, that was his second favourite meal.
If You’re a FIlm Enthusiast
If you’re a curry lover, then you would love to share a bite with Charlie Chaplin. Let’s just hope he would speak some words to you, because it wouldn’t be so much fun eating dinner in silence…
