What would you make if you could get your hands on anything from Whole Foods?

It would be in about 3 weeks....

Thanks for the reply and sorry about the vagueness of my post.

It would be one of the Whole Foods around the Boston area, not sure exactly which one....

They pretty much told me I could do whatever I wanted, so I see this as my way of working with some ingredients I probably normally wouldn't have. So probably something non-Taiwanese and more using whatever's in season and local-ish. =)

French fries sans deep fryer?

I just made some duck fat potatoes this weekend and loved them so much I made it 2 more times in less than 30 hours. I used about 4 tablespoons of duck fat in a medium-small skillet and 1 medium and 1 small Yukon gold potato each time. Cut the potatoes, soak them in cold, salted water (changing the water once), heat the oil, add the potatoes after draining them, and cook until golden brown, stirring every couple of minutes to make sure all the sides get in contact with the fat. Oh yeah, and lightly salt when done.

The result is a non-greasy, crispy on the outside and creamy/fluffy in the middle super delicious fry.

I've recently started a food blog (http://the-cooking-of-joy.blogspot.com/) and one of my friends who works for Whole Foods requested that I giver her and her husband a cooking class. I told her I'd be happy to in return for supplies from Whole Foods. Given such a carte blanche, do you guys have any suggestions for what to make? The husband is allergic to shellfish (bivalves and gastropods), and I'd prefer not to deep-fry stuff. Thanks!

Where to find tropical mixed drinks in Boston/Cambridge?

I just got back from St. Thomas and unfortunately didn't get a chance to try a painkiller or bushwacker there. Are there places in Boston/Cambridge to get good tropical drinks? I searched for painkiller and bushwacker on this board but the search came up empty. Thanks!
