For sit-down dinners, I don't have one, as each dinner has a unique theme. For more "cocktail" type parties: a smoked pork loin, scratch-made lobster pizza, moroccan lamb bisteeya, gruyere cheese straws
My favorite comfort food:
My mom's meatloaf, or her chicken noodle casserole, or her sweet and sour pork chops
My top 5 favorite restaurants:
Hugo's in Houston, Foxy's in Jost Van Dyke, a little conveyor-belt sushi restaurant in Chiba, a robatayaki restaurant in Chiba, Set Portres in Barcelona
My most tattered cookbooks:
"Legends of Texas Barbecue", "The Casablanca Cookbook", "Sophia Loren's Recipes and Memories", "Rick Bayless' Mexico: One Plate at a Time"
