1982 Solo dinner at Four Seasons Olympic Hotel (now Fairmont Olympic). Absolutely memorable. My sommelier looked just like Elvis Costello! The chef and sommalier created a vegetarian menu and pairings just for me, complete with my own paper menu to remember the evening. Huge Georgian dining room and I sat alone at my table, thoroughly engrossed in The Three Musketeers and a splendiferous meal, fit for Queen Anne of Austria.
My current drink of choice:
TaB, baby or a crazy iced tea blend I make.
I really wish I could:
Use my powers for good while vanquishing whatever is pissing me off at the moment.
My "Go-to" dinner party dish:
My favorite comfort food:
Homemade barbeque sauce over shredded seitan, served with mashed potatoes.
My most tattered cookbooks:
The Essential Vegetarian (NOT the one by Diana Shaw but rather by Whitecap Books), Fanny Farmer and Passionate Vegetarian.
