Have a great Chinese restaurant --- Northampton's two fizzled out to none!
My "Go-to" dinner party dish:
Still Baked Chicken with Basil Parmesan Crust, but also CI's "Extreme Brisket" and Carbonnade Flamande.
My favorite comfort food:
Campbell's Tomato Soup with a pat of butter. Laugh if you will!
My top 5 favorite restaurants:
Sorry to leave Alta and Fin in the Berkshires, but looking forward to exploring gastronomy in Northampton
My most tattered cookbooks:
Stilll Arthur Schwartz, What to Cook When there's Nothing In the House; but now I've discovered Jamie Oliver, especially his Food Revolution, and another sleeper-winner, Italian Country Cooking, by Australian Loukie Werle -- wonderful!
