Best meal I ever ate:
That one is difficult because there are too many, so I will give you my most recent: glazed orange duck @ Crush in Seattle, WA & Miso infused Alaskan Cod @ Buddha Belly...yummy
I really wish I could:
Travel the world and get paid for critiquing restaurants
My "Go-to" dinner party dish:
There are two: Puree of Mushroom Soup w/ a dolup of Creme Fraiche & and Napa Style's Potatoe Pesto Cakes
My favorite comfort food:
Chips and Salsa; Pizza (Margherita Style)
My top 5 favorite restaurants:
Providence, Melisse, Gingergrass, Smitty's, Dining Room @ The Ritz in S.F., French Laundry, Hoksai, Angelini Osteria and Hatfield's...too many to list just 5.
My most tattered cookbooks:
Jamie Oliver's and Thomas Keller's...love the pics and use it for tips on presentation, but most of the recipies I use are not from cookbooks.
