Best meal I ever ate:
My 30th birthday at Convivio in NYC. We had dinner AFTER a show, so it was late. We ended up the last couple in the place. Excellent service, great food...it was terribly romantic!
My current drink of choice:
Homemade beer - currently my husband's wicked hefeweizen.
I really wish I could:
Become independently wealthy so my husband and I could build our "compound" and start farming. Seriously, I want a cow! And chickens! And pigs!
My "Go-to" dinner party dish:
Brasato al Barolo, or something that always ends up being terribly time-consuming. Sigh.
My favorite comfort food:
Chocolate Chip Cookies, or potato chips with french onion dip.
My top 5 favorite restaurants:
Au Pied de Cochon (MTL), 85 Main (CT), Perilla (NYC, only been once but the meal was great), Peking Tokyo (CT), NY Pizza Co (CT).
My most tattered cookbooks:
The "yellow" cookbook (Pillsbury, from before I was born); King Arthur Flour 200th Anniversary; Cooks Illustrated Best Recipe, Julia et Jacques Cooking at Home
