* Sweet or Savory?


* Which ingredient(s) do you use the most?

Coconut oil, butter and cream

* What’s your favorite cooking smell?

Apples and caramel

* What is your most favorite cooking sound?

The hiss of the pan when I add water after sautéing rice in butter.

* In the kitchen, what’s your most treasured possession?

My 12 quart hammered copper pot my husband bought for me at Dehillerin in Paris.

* What do you look for inside a dish?

Fresh, wholesome, organic ingredients.  I also look for recipes I can change to use only whole ingredients.

* What is a “faux pas” in your kitchen?

Don’t really have one.

* Is there a food you will not eat?

Chicken livers.  My Mom used to make them when I was a kid and even though my tastes have changed, I just don’t think I would ever try them again.

* What food is your guilty pleasure?



* Have you ever changed how you feel towards a food?

Years ago my health was completely changed for the better when I began using only whole, organic ingredients.  I’m off all my medications that I relied on so heavily in the past and now my goal is to show others how to cook using only the purest ingredients.


* If you could prepare a dinner for anyone, who would it be?

My family

* If you could choose a living or historical cook to prepare a meal for you, who would it be?

Ina Garten.  She can have me over to eat in her barn anytime.

* Which food website/ or blog would you die without?

I really love Tartelette…I am a bit bias since she is doing the photography for my book, but really, her photography can’t be beat.


* What is your favorite food shopping experience?

Any food shopping with my Dad…he throws anything new he sees in the cart. It’s always an interesting experience.

* If you could move, which country would you move to for the food?


* What’s the dress code in the kitchen when you cook?

Jeans,  J.Crew Tee, and an apron.   I always have an apron on, so much that my friends jab me for it.  I’ve confused many delivery men when they show up with a package and there I am in my apron.

* What would you request on the menu if it was your last supper?

Chocolate, and then more chocolate.

* What food would you prepare to seduce someone?

Chocolate…I think there’s a theme here.


* What food are you craving right now?

A glass of wine

* What is your comfort food?

Pasta.  Every Sunday night I make a big bowl and enjoy.
