I live in Englewood, NJ but work (and eat!) in NYC, so I guess technically I'm still a city girl : )
I work at a major children's charity in New York, as the chief fundraiser for a well-respected national program.
What do I do for fun? When would I have time for that? ; ) Well, I cook, of course, and I enjoy scouting the greenmarkets in NYC for fresh produce and other intriguing ingredients for my culinary creations. I have a cat who keeps me on my toes (!) plus a new condo that always need to need something done to it (!!!). I love to travel, and I love to try out new cuisines, so I try to combine those two pleasures as much as possible.
I'd love to find some cooking/eating partners to share my adventures. And if you're vegetarian, vegan, or at least veg friendly--all the better : ) !
My favorite cookbooks would have to be anything by Molly Katzen, How It All Vegan and La Dolce Vegan by Sarah Kramer, The Joy of Cooking (the trusted authority!), and Savoring the Spice Coast of India by Maya Kaimal (the most amazing, traditional Indian recipes around).
My passions? Food (of course!), travel, art and literature, film (especially indie/foreign), music, animals, and having deep, stimulating conversations with good friends.
Pet peeves? Home repairs that don't work and contractors who do likewise!!!! (Can you tell I just moved?)
I love cooking, period! My favorite types of dishes to cook are those involving exotic spices and fresh ingredients that become more complex as the dish goes on. So, I would have to say that Indian food tops the list. (Vegetarian, of course!)
I am famous for my spinach quiche, and my baked goods--anything from brownies to cookies to breads to cake. I've actually had people fight over who gets the last piece!!!
My favorite restaurants in NYC would have to be Candle Cafe, Candle 79, Pongal, Zen Palate, and my all-time favorite Vegetarian Dim Sum House on Pell Street : )
