I really wish I could:
Fry things a little better. But then again, perhaps that is a good thing...
My top 5 favorite restaurants:
Los Danzantes, Oaxaca; The Gallery Grill, Toronto; Cava, Toronto, Au Pied du Cochon, Montreal; Guu w. Garlic, Vancouver
My most tattered cookbooks:
Thomas Keller's Bouchon cookbook, for sure, but the Complete Robuchon gets a lot of use as well...
