Best meal I ever ate:
My Dad's Thanksgiving turkey dinner, with the whole family.
My current drink of choice:
That "Ferngully" thing from Kingston 11.
I really wish I could:
Spend more time eating.
My "Go-to" dinner party dish:
A roast from Olivier's.
My favorite comfort food:
My own baked goods, Acme bread with cultured butter and salt.
My top 5 favorite restaurants:
Manresa (with the caveat that I haven't been in a while), Dosa (perfect date night with Kabuki theater afterwards), Tamarindo (reliable, delicious, open late), Great China (peking duck ...), Chez Panisse (the classic, a nostalgic favorite for the introduction to much of what I love)
My most tattered cookbooks:
Cake Bible, Madhur Jaffrey's World of the East Vegetarian Cooking, a bunch of printed out recipes in a file folder
