Who is your "Von" and what dish is his/her specialty?

chowser | Nov 17, 2011 11:31 AM

If any of you have followed this thread, there is some interesting discussions:

So, do you know any Von's in real life? What special dishes does he/she make? Let's acknowledge all the people who've somehow perfected their specialty, have some kind of special touch to make something extraordinary. Are you a Von? Do you have a special dish?

The first person I'd nominate is my MIL. She makes the best eggrolls and nian gao. There's nothing much to them (other than the need to have amazing knife skills) but somehow she elevates both better than I've had anywhere and by anyone else. Even when she does all the prep for my FIL, his, while good, falls short.
