Best meal I ever ate:
French Laundry, Napa Valley...unless you count all the ones at Nana's table. :o)
My current drink of choice:
Espresso vodka martini or a good Pinot Noir
I really wish I could:
Stop losing it at the last minute, when I, as usual, have invited way to many people due to my "the more the merrier" mentality!
My "Go-to" dinner party dish:
Boulod's short ribs w/ mashed root veggies and a fresh green veggie like broccoli rabe or grean beans, IF they are in season. A very simple dessert and lots of lingering over good wine.
My favorite comfort food:
cheesy, tomato-y orzo or mashed potatoes with broccoli rabe....burgers and beer....wine and cheese and a good French bread
My top 5 favorite restaurants:
Primanti's, French Laundry, Food Shack, Primanti's again, Hog Snappers
My most tattered cookbooks:
French Laundry, Julia Childs How to Cook, my own!
