As of March 2010, dinner with SO and my M&D at Canteen in San Francisco. As of July 09, Fuel's nose-to-tail with pork belly. As of October 12, five meals served alla famiglia at La Buca (they just keep getting better). Best non-resto meal: my dad's fresh whole bbq'd spring salmon
My current drink of choice:
summer drink: Pimm's with lemonade and a slice or three of cucumber over ice; yearround: tall Plymouth gin and cranberry juice with a squeeze of lime
I really wish I could:
spend the other 8 hours of the day thinking about food but ya gotta sleep sometime!
My "Go-to" dinner party dish:
in the spring: asparagus lasagne (white sauce); in the winter: sweet trahanas with spinach casserole
My favorite comfort food:
My top 5 favorite restaurants:
Kimura (RIP), La Buca, Bo Laksa King, Hai Phong, Les Amis (okay, so it's not a resto, sue me!)... And for non-Vancouver, I'd say Canteen in San Francisco. Evoe in Portland is on the ascendancy too.
My most tattered cookbooks:
I tend to photocopy recipes I like so my cookbooks stay untattered. Favourite source for tasty, unfussy recipes: Homemakers' Magazine.
