I'm pretty low-brow, it would have to be any one of my Italian grandmother's family dinners
My current drink of choice:
Peach iced tea. Not only am I low-brow, I never liked the taste of alcohol and now I can't seem to digest it.
I really wish I could:
Cook like my grandmother and her sisters. See above.
My "Go-to" dinner party dish:
Macaroni & cheese with aged gouda, roasted tomatoes, and imported ham or prosciutto
My favorite comfort food:
Warm oatmeal chocolate-chip cookies from my mother's recipe
My top 5 favorite restaurants:
This would have no value to anyone. We eat burritos from Anna's Tacqueria, the best local chain, three times a week! But here are four more: Chez Panisse, Il Pizzaiuolo in Florence, anyplace in Venice, and Lala Rokh in Boston
My most tattered cookbooks:
I try not to use cookbooks but my Silver Palates are looking splattered.
