My heritage taught me to cook Indian food at a young age, something that I loved. I also adore tropical food, as I grew up in Hawaii for awhile. I've never eaten red meat or pork in my whole life and just focus on natural foods and natural living. I aim for vegetarianism but have a weakness for seafood. For me, cooking is a form of love. It's also a creative outlet. Living in Sonoma County, I have access to a huge array of outstanding gourmet foods that foster this. In the summer, my family plants a large organic garden and we really enjoy that. I try to volunteer with Food Not Bombs as much as possible as well, because I believe no one should go hungry in a country with so much surplus food! I love it, the kids love it, and it keeps me cooking.
I also love world travel, literature, painting and hanging out with my cat.
My favorite cookbooks are Chocolate and Zucchini, Greens, all the Moosewood Cookbooks, the Silver Palate, and all of Madhur Jaffrey's wonderful books.
My favorite color is either red or black. I'm currently a return student in college, finishing my last semester of my senior year before going on to graduate school.
My pet peeve is definately bad drivers on the road! And telemarketers. I have no patience for either.

Hmm... and my favourite restaurant is, without a doubt, Chez Aito on Moorea, in French Polynesia. I also LOVE the Black Dog Tavern on Martha's Vineyard, Thai Ginger and Dempseys in Petaluma, and Tarantella's Pizza in New York. Of course, Greens and Chez Panisse too...
