This is one of the most difficult questions I have ever been asked, and I can not respond impartially. I am addicted to the flavours of the Mediterranean and the Middle Eastern regions, so the best restaurants that present those foods and treat their customers well always win. However, I also love fresh vegetables and fresh Atlantic seafood, and so a good restaurant in the Maritime Provinces of Canada or in the middle of coastal Maine is very attractive. :)
My current drink of choice:
Organic North African Mint Tea with cardamom, ginger, peppermint, Japanese hojicha, green tea, licorice root, fennel, cloves and black pepper.
I really wish I could:
See that more men really know how to love AND respect a woman as an equal partner. Women need both love and respect, for a lifetime, just as men do.
My "Go-to" dinner party dish:
It depends... chili (veg or con carne) for a casual meal anytime, roasted chicken or roasted lamb for a more elegant meal (possibly chicken tikka or leg of lamb) or seafood chowder, homemade at my home : salad with fresh local greens and a homemade vinaigrette are a must have to compliment, along with other dishes..
My favorite comfort food:
Greek yogourt with natural lime and dark chocolate standing somewhere nearby.
My top 5 favorite restaurants:
Nick's Fishmarket in Maui; Le Petit Zinc in Paris; Water Prince Corner Shop & Restaurant in Charlottetown, PEI; Seaside Island View Restaurant, Western Shore on Hwy 3 in Nova Scotia (B0J 3M0); Avli Greek Restaurant in Toronto
