Best meal I ever ate:
garlic soup and their infamous (in my mind at least) puffy tortilla chips at the Smoke Cafe in Jamestown CA
My current drink of choice:
iced mocha. Cold-brew coffee, cream or evaporated milk, and chocolate. Bring on the milkfat and smooth coffee, a combination obviously of divine inspiration.
I really wish I could:
Cook using "primitive" tools and materials
My "Go-to" dinner party dish:
maple apple pie. Just toss apples that have been tossed with flour and cinnamon into a pie shell, and drizzle with real maple syrup.
My favorite comfort food:
sourdough bread with butter
My top 5 favorite restaurants:
The Smoke Cafe in Jamestown, Alfonzo's in Ceres, an Iron Skillet in a truck stop in Wheeler Ridge, the Taqueria in the Junction in Sonora, the Golden Phoenix, the taco truck on yosemite
My most tattered cookbooks:
Fannie Farmer cookbook and baking book, The Gilroy Garlic Festival cookbook, Betty Crocker
