Best meal I ever ate:
This little basement room in anghieri, Italy. Best steak ever.
My current drink of choice:
Assam Black Tea or Chilean Malbec.
I really wish I could:
Go out to eat more. Owning a restaurant makes that difficult.
My "Go-to" dinner party dish:
Debbie Hahn's (Phippsburg, Maine) Cheese (any of it), and Standard Baking Bread (Portland, ME)
My favorite comfort food:
Lately, soft grits and gravy.
My top 5 favorite restaurants:
Cinque Terre (Portland, ME), Chase's Daily (Belfast, ME), Yaffa Cafe (NY,NY), ummm...can I put my own restaurant here?...
My most tattered cookbooks:
Joy of Cooking (pretty much all you need), Nourishing Traditions by Sally Fallon, The Wild Vegetarian Cookbook...
