Pavarotti might well have enjoyed it, judging by this anecdote:
After their separation, [Princess] Diana came to New York, and she and I were both invited to a dinner. . . At dinner we all ordered different things, and she ordered broiled shrimp that looked wonderful. I said to her, 'Princess, these shrimp must be very good, yes?' She said they were excellent. Later I said they must be really delicious. She smiled and nodded enthusiastically. Finally, I said, 'Listen. I tried twice with no success. Now I ask you directly. May I have one of your shrimp?" She got flustered and very apologetic. 'I am so sorry. . . .I didn't realize . . . ' Then she smiled in a shy way and said, 'I am not accustomed to sharing my food.' If that is true, she would have a terrible time at my family table.
--Luciano Pavarotti with William Wright, My World
If you're not into seafood, there's a Pavarotti-inspired truffle--go to Just Truffles on Grand Ave. in St. Paul and pick up a Tenor's Temptation. You won't regret it! If you have the misfortune to live somewhere other than St. Paul, you can order from their website (www.justtruffles.com). It's got cream of coconut and a bit of rum and I forget what else in it. Yum!
