Best meal I ever ate:
A tie: 1) On my honeymoon, at Nick's in the Four Seasons in Maui. Best calamari ever. 2. Mastro's in Beverly Hills. Best steak and lobster mashed potatoes ever. Also had some of a seafood tower that was out of this world.
My current drink of choice:
7-Up and vodka.
I really wish I could:
Have a huge kitchen with sous chefs and dishwashers.
My "Go-to" dinner party dish:
Honey glazed salmon for an entree. Parmesan butter corn or southern vinegar-based cole slaw for a side.
My favorite comfort food:
Mac & cheese
My top 5 favorite restaurants:
Mastro's (Beverly Hills), Crustacean (Beverly Hills), Bamboo Forest (Valley Village), Sugarfish (Brentwood), The Grand Hotel's Main Dining Room (Mackinac Island, Michigan). That's today's list, anyway.
My most tattered cookbooks:
"Our Family Cookbook" - a labor of love from my southern Mother-in-Law, which I've added to over the years.
