Current photo: Carmen Miranda. I need one of those hats to wear while making smoothies. Time flies like an arrow, fruit flies like a banana.
Refugee from the lake effect snows of Lake Ontario, learning to garden with miniscule applications of water in the desert. Was a university art department member (photography) before moving to New Mexico. I miss my darkroom, but now have a brand new Nikon digital SLR to make up for it. My heart will always belong to the handmade image, not one printed from a machine. I'm a great fan of pinhole cameras and 19th century photo techniques.
Anything EXCEPT arugula (tastes like skunk to me) liver,(the oil filter of an animal's body), or uncooked egg white. I even like raw fish, chocolate covered ants, haggis, and sea urchin roe. Urchin roe was first tasted on a month-long trip to Japan. Good thing no one told me what it was, I might have turned finicky and missed out on an incredible treat.
My favorite cookbook varies. I have some wonderful ones I love but do not necessarily usee that often. I love Crescent Dragonwagon's soup and bread book and am eagerly awaiting the publication of Jose Andres' "Made in Spain". Mark Bittman's vegetarian one is also excellent.It was like pulling teeth choosing ones to get rid of before moving, but I girded my loins and gave away about 10% of them.
One of my favorite restaurants no longer exists. It was La Fonda del Sol in the Time-Life Building in NY City. My first taste of salsa in 1967! No other salsa in all these years can take me back to that first taste, so exotic to my young New England palate. Dano's Heuriger on Seneca Lake in the Finger Lakes is another favorite, but I'm no longer close enough to go there.
My current local favorites include Boba Cafe (for their Green Chile Chicken Wonton Soup), the Paisano Cafe (for their moles), the Double Eagle (for their dry-aged steaks) and Zeffiro's (for their wood-fired pizza, rustic breads, and salads). My favorite city in which to eat is Montreal. The whole world is represented there. Le Passe Partout was a great one, but it, too, has gone by the wayside. Mr. Ma's had great Chinese seafood dishes, you could select the very fish you wanted prepared for you. I have no idea if it still exists, but did go back there about 6 years ago and it was just as good then.
