I grew up in a fancypants restaurant. It was a family business. 6-course prix-fixe dinners. Lots of single-task silverware. Ha. Various exotic food and drink... shark, gold leaf on your desserts etc... I was just a teenage boob though. Where was the meatloaf and mac and cheese?!
What I'm Listening to
www.Hellthy.com. I am. It's not (just) a plug.
Kyoto sushi, Japanese pizza
Red and white wine. Brunello di Montalcino is a grand Tuscan red - but pricey. Beers in metal cans (really).
Most coveted item
Wine. Lots and lots of wine.
- Brunello di Montalcino
Pair it with a freshly killed, gamey, super tender, wild boar meal in a tiny, cobblestone-walled restaurant tucked in the alley of a medieval town sitting atop a large hill sloping down to a little Italian beach... with the restaurant's owner singing and pouring the drinks...all with some good friends. Krikey. What a time.
(Yeah, I know Montalcino is land-locked (see map). The town mentioned above was a different 'burgh on the coast: Castiglione della Pescaia (see map). If you are going to the most touristed country I'd highly recommend it. See pics.).

- Don't Take Away My Transfats!
NYC mayor Bloomberg has succeeded in his pitch to kill transfats in NYC restaurants. The clock is now ticking for their demise!
I want to be able to choose great taste and heart failure!
(Actually - I'm not a big french fry and fast food person. But I like to rant. And I like having the ability to choose unwisely. Ha.)
