Best meal I ever ate:
One of the most recent great meals was at a 10-top dinner party in PDX. I ate sweetbreads and bone marrow for the first time during the 10 course meal and it was fucking amazing.
My current drink of choice:
All about west coast wines.
I really wish I could:
make a perfectly round pizza. My dough has great texture and flavor, but the shape? Ah.
My "Go-to" dinner party dish:
Don't have one - I always want to be trying something new.
My favorite comfort food:
Baked Mac and Cheese. Or a pastie from the midwestern bar down the street.
My most tattered cookbooks:
My Canal House books are getting greasier by the day; Marcella Hazan; Julia Child; Alice Waters; and I'm excited for future grease splatters on the culinary school textbook I just ordered.
