What and where was your most gluttonous meal experience ever? Do you even remember? Or were you left in a lead-bellied, food-overload haze of bacon grease, donut glaze and salty chocolate crumbs? (Oh wait, that was me.) I asked some of the country's most famed eaters this very question in honor of the most apropos of holidays, Fat Tuesday.

"I had a Kashmiri Wazwan a few years back in the home of Rohit Bal, the Isaac Mizrahi of India. The crowd was decadent and seemed like a cross between a Bollywood movie and Warhol's Factory back in its heyday. The food was 30 some odd course of traditional lamb dishes, from curries and braises to milky lamb balls and fiery lamb ribs. We documented the evening in my Delhi episode of 'Bizarre Foods' but nothing could do justice to the event itself, sitting around a living room, reclining on pillows, served by a fleet of specialized servants and eating enough food for an army... and this from a man who has eaten whole cows in Argentina and survived a day and half of eating with Martin Picard in Montreal."
