The meal in the picture is quite typical for what we are likely to prepare at home, and while Yoko is developing a huge repretoire of menu from Japanese, Thai, German and Italian cuisines, we are still eager to add another: Korean royal court cooking specializing in root vegetables.
Some religious restrictions might apply here. Muslims may not recommend the use of roast pork tenderloin in this meal and might rather opt for beef tenderloin, though we know that will surely cost a fair bit more. Hindus might prefer roast lamb while avoiding beef and Orthodox Jews will definitely lament the obvious kosher infraction evident here. Finally there could be a debate about whether the well-decanted French Bordeaux is food or alcohol. Where I come from it’s always considered as food, especially by the Catholic factions.
But Yoko and I have no restrictions other than those culled by taste, and since there is no arguing taste, we have only cholesterol to consider. Any roast pork tenderloin has close to the lowest cholesterol of any red meat, except veal. The cheese is another story but everyone already knows that. No arguing taste. The point is this is good food.
