Best meal I ever ate:
At Le Bouchon in Portland, OR. The food was excellent (escargot in a marrow and wine reduction!), made all the better because 7 of us walked in without a reservation on a Monday night and were able to get a table. What a fun night with great friends -- what a great meal is all about.
My current drink of choice:
I really wish I could:
Take a cooking & eating tour of Asia.
My "Go-to" dinner party dish:
Coq au vin. Simple, but seriously impressive, especially to non-cooks. Besides, I just love eating it, but never go to the trouble when it's just the two of us at home.
My favorite comfort food:
Bread pudding. I used to ask my mom to make it instead of birthday cake.
My top 5 favorite restaurants:
Shopsin's, The Grocery, Cafe Habana, Tempo Presto, Bar Tabac (although it's all about the atmosphere)
My most tattered cookbooks:
"The Moosewood Restaurant Cooks At Home" and "The South American Gentleman's Companion"
