Best meal I ever ate:
A basque restaurant in Paris - I have no idea what it was named.
My current drink of choice:
Scotch on the rocks, microbrews.
I really wish I could:
Bake a perfect baguette
My "Go-to" dinner party dish:
My husband's handmade pasta and my arsenal of sauces
My favorite comfort food:
A baguette and a nice soft cheese with a bottle of wine
My top 5 favorite restaurants:
I can't afford the really excellent ones, and it makes me sad to say that in KC there aren't any that I love madly. Extra Virgin is nice, Blanc, Barley's is a good standby.
My most tattered cookbooks:
The Martha Stewart Cookbook (for baking), The Bread Baker's Apprentice, Sauces (Petersen), The New Professional Chef, anything Rick Bayless
