I'm looking forward to that! The veggie chorizo I used to eat is wonderful, I can't imagine what the real stuff tastes like.

What do you listen to while cooking?

I like listening to either sexy-ish music like PJ Harvey, Devotchka or Morphine or really obnoxious loud stuff like Murder City Devils. I like stuff I can move to.

Utah - looking for AWESOME breakfast

The Vertical Diner has the best breakfast in Salt Lake. The pancakes are heavenly, the coffee is good and the vegetarian sausage is so yummy.

Salt Lake City Recommendations?

The Copper Onion is hands-down my favorite restaurant in SLC.

what do you prefer that most foodies would scoff at?

ha ha! It's a beautiful blend of technology and treachery. They get crisp in the microwave!

Sriracha Chili Sauce Condiment or Crack?!

YUM.

I especially love it with bbq sauce or sweet/sour sauce. So good. BTW - it's taken me years to pronounce it properly. Before that it was lovingly known in my household as 'cock sauce'.

chickpeas

I had a friend who *swears* that her hummus is creamy because she takes the skin off the garbanzo beans. I think she's nuts.

Do you ever like the crappy better than the excellent?

I still love Kraft Macaroni and Cheese. Even though I have to tweak it a bit with good cheese. And cheap marshmallows.

is this a challenge?! ;) I'm going to have to work my way up to that. I've only had (dead) octopus once and that didn't go over really well, but I am intrigued .....

"gourmet" foods you liked as a kid

My grandparents were the offspring of Italian immigrants, so I grew up eating a lot of different things than my Mormon friends. I remember my godfather bringing fresh ricotta over to the house; that was so good. I loved it with lots of pepper and salt on crackers.

i don't remember seeing it anywhere. what does it taste like? i would imagine it would be something i'd really like - seems like it would have a good texture.

that sounds so great! i'm planning on doing that this summer, but it's going to take a considerable amount of guts on my part to boil a lobster.
