Best meal I ever ate:
I'm hoping I haven't had it yet.
My current drink of choice:
Mostly water since I'm supposed to drink more of it. Also lovely wine to go with what I'm eating or a nice pegu cocktail
I really wish I could:
Grow my own vegetables and fruits but I don't have the space (or the skill, truth be told)
My "Go-to" dinner party dish:
Depends on the season. Like to do "low and slow" barbeque when we have French guests since they usually equate outdoor grilling with semi-incineration
My favorite comfort food:
Hot buttermilk biscuits with butter or dark chocolate brownies with a glass of cold milk
My top 5 favorite restaurants:
No possible way to do this. A restaurant I ate in recently that I liked a lot was Watershed in Decatur, GA. Really good shrimp grits.
My most tattered cookbooks:
The Joy of Cooking 1975 Edition; Julia Child's "The Way to Cook"; Richard Sax "Classic Home Desserts"; Joel Robuchon "Le meilleur et le plus simple de la France"; Nancy Silverton "Breads from the La Brea Bakery"; Clifford Wright "Little Foods of the Mediterranean"; Judy Rodgers "The Zuni Cafe Cookbook"; Paula Wolfert "World of Food"; Jeffrey Steingarten "The Man Who Ate Everything"
