Best meal I ever ate:
Smoked salmon and rye bread we bought at a market hall in Helsinki, accompanied by champagne.
My current drink of choice:
Unpretentious, unlabeled Sicilan vino di casa that we had in every restaurant in Sicily. So light, so drinkable and so unavailable anywhere else.
I really wish I could:
Cook all day
My "Go-to" dinner party dish:
Mushroom Risotto, rosemary & red onion foccacia
My favorite comfort food:
Pizza capricosa, stonebaked, pasta putanesca
My top 5 favorite restaurants:
Buonissimo, Pangea, Asha's, Shiraz (all Birmingham UK) Jimmy's in Chelsea London, street restaurants in Thailand, trattorias in Sicily, the Casa Casalinga in Berlin (so crowded, you have to share tables with other people)
My most tattered cookbooks:
Mum's handwritten recipes, my own recipe binder, Nigel Slater, an old Italian cookbook
