Best meal I ever ate:
I don't think I can pick just one, but it's probably a toss up between Chili Crab in Port Klang, Malaysia and the seafood platter at some cafe on the Champs Elysees.
My current drink of choice:
Yellow Tail Pinot Noir
I really wish I could:
Buy fresh halibut in Hawaii.
My "Go-to" dinner party dish:
Filet of Beef stuffed with Duxelles and Topped with Bearnaise Sauce
My favorite comfort food:
Spaghetti with Italian Sausage and Veggie Marinara
My top 5 favorite restaurants:
Pahu I'a at the Four Seasons Hualalai, Hawaiian Style Cafe, DK Steakhouse, Cafe Maharani (honolulu), Merrimans.
My most tattered cookbooks:
I don't usually actually COOK with cookbooks. I just read them in bed, then cook with their inspiration. Must say though that the Silver Palate and Mastering the Art of French Cooking look a little worse for wear.
