Best meal I ever ate:
I am lucky to say that there have been too many to choose just one, and most of them included too much cheese.
My current drink of choice:
Sazerac, good and proper, forever and ever.
My favorite comfort food:
Fried catfish and hush puppies and fried taters and sweet tea. Everything brown and fried and good.
My most tattered cookbooks:
Rick Bayless, Edna Lewis, Diana Kennedy, Mark Bittman and Ste. Julia Child
