Best meal I ever ate:
A spontaneous spring picnic under the chestnut trees in the Jardin des Tuilleries, with cherries, pate, cheese, a baguette and pastries.
My current drink of choice:
Diet Orange Dry for day, Amarula over ice for night.
I really wish I could:
Make ice cream at home. I'm too worried about having such ready access to calories though!
My "Go-to" dinner party dish:
I very rarely make the same thing twice, even if it's delicious...it's too tempting to try something new.
My top 5 favorite restaurants:
To narrow the field, I'm only choosing ones with the ideal food/atmosphere combo: in Boston, Lumiere and Eastern Standard; in London, Corrigan's, in NYC Gramercy Tavern. Wild card: I'm having a moment with The Blueberry Muffin in Cedarville, MA (breakfast only).
My most tattered cookbooks:
I don't usually use cookbooks - usually it's a recipe in a magazine that catches my eye or I turn to Epi, Food52 or Chowhound's Home Cooking board for suggestions to use up particular ingredients.
