Food meme

I'm starting this one.

Regular rules apply: answers below this post, repost questions in your own blog if you're so inclined.

1: What is your favourite ingredient?
2: What is the one (or two, or three) ingredient that you just can't cook without?
3: Favourite dish?
4: Describe a meal you've had that you'd really like to relive (it doesn't have to do with the food, necessarily).
5: What do you like to cook the most?
6: Share a recipe with me!

Aaaaand my answers:
1: I have several, I think, but I really love my reduced-stock bottles ("fond").
2: Onions. Use'em with everything. And cream.
3: Mum's christmas duck, stuffes with prunes and apples, served with red cabbage and tiny caramelized potatoes.
4: I'm lucky enough to have had several of those. My most recent was a Sunday dinner at Kampen Bistro, where everything - the food, the company, the service and the mood - just blended together seamlessly and wonderfully.
5: Sauce. A good sauce brings all the different dishes together, while tasting great all by itself. My great-grandmother used to say that she wanted "She made some good sauce" on her gravestone ("Hun lagde et knippe god sovs" - oldemor var dansk), and I can see why.
6: I'm trying to work on side dishes other than potatoes, and today's turned out pretty good:

Chop an onion (see!) and two carrots and fry it lightly in a pan with butter and pepper. Add 200 g green lentils and 4 dl chicken stock, simmer for about 30 minutes. Salt and pepper to taste. Great with pork, will probably work with white fish as well. Or duck (yum).

    Forsøkte meg på hvit fiskesuppe for første gang i mitt liv, og er så fornøyd med resultatet at det nesten er litt ekkelt. Særlig tatt i betraktning…

    Posjerte egg har vært en slags hellig gral for meg i noen år nå. Jeg har rett og slett aldri fått det til - hver gang jeg har forsøkt, har eggene…
