My first affogato, at Simon's, Cambridge. Turkish breakfast, Istanbul, 1998. Moules au gratin, Brussels, 1998. Workman's lunch (salad of tuna, turnips, greens, dressing), somewhere in France, 1999. My first persimmon, off the tree, Salerno, Italy, 1999. Ah, hitchiking food.
My current drink of choice:
Cold milk at home, with breakfast. Simon's double-ristretto.
My most tattered cookbooks:
More food writing, but: The Auberge of the Flowering Hearth--de Groot; An Omelette and a Glass of Wine--E. David
