Paris, 3rd arrondissement
Best meal I ever ate:
Farm chicken, roasted with 40 cloves of garlic and parsley, prepared by the mother of a French boyfriend. Salad of bitter greens, dressed with the warm juice from the chicken. A red Cotes-du-Rhone. Crepes Suzette, made over the coals in the fireplace. And a nice little bowl of 150-year-old Grand Marnier. Too bad it didn't last...
My current drink of choice:
a red Faugeres, or in hot weather, a Ricard on ice - no water.
I really wish I could:
have the tastebuds to appreciate black truffles...
My favorite comfort food:
chicken and andouille gumbo, fait maison
My top 5 favorite restaurants:
...currently: La Regalade St Honore, Cafe des Musees, La Zucca (Venice), l'Ecailleur du Bistrot, Chez l'Ami Jean...at least for today!
My most tattered cookbooks:
All "Julia", all the time; "Joy of Cooking", for useful references on ingredients and measurements
