Best meal I ever ate:
Every new experience is "the Best". I love new foods and new experiences.
My current drink of choice:
Wine...always... wine is my first choice....after a nice cocktail :)
I really wish I could:
Cook all day, every day.
My "Go-to" dinner party dish:
No particular dish. I like new things and rarely make the same thing twice.
My favorite comfort food:
Anything creamy, crunchy, cheesy and salty.
My top 5 favorite restaurants:
My kitchen, my outdoor kitchen & BBQ. I seem to only want to go out for local "junk" food these days (happy hour!) as that is something that I never do at home. I love bar food, comfort food in a restaurant. When traveling, I like small, local, casual restaurants and really enjoy a Gastropub experience in a new town. I love going on food weekends- vegas, napa, San Fran and Portland.
My most tattered cookbooks:
All the classic "old school" ones, several "hippie/healthy" style books, various Asian cuisines:Vietnamese, Indian, Burmese and...my own cooking scrapbook started 5 years ago. Always trying new recipes and learning new techniques.
