Best meal I ever ate:
What my mother and aunts prepared for a holiday feast--without knowing I would be asked about this later.
My current drink of choice:
Concha y Toro reds--weaning myself from the hard stuff.
I really wish I could:
pilot an AT6 Texan in the Nevada air races.
My "Go-to" dinner party dish:
Anything I'm asked to bring.
My favorite comfort food:
oyaku donburi or musubi with ume boshi inside
My top 5 favorite restaurants:
Various road- and street-food joints, mostly in south and SE Asia.
My most tattered cookbooks:
I don't use cookbooks, but do have to consult "Paul Bocuse's French Cooking" quite a bit even though I won't admit it and even though I am not that big of a fan of the French.
