Drink of Choice…Limoncello over ice and only if it’s from Capri.
Favorite Guilty Pleasure Food…Bugles. Pure junk.
Culinary Hero…Julia Child, who was real and accessible with a can-do attitude, and Anthony Bourdain, for taking me to dark and dingy places that I never thought I’d like.
Favorite Kitchen Utensil…My hands! Nothing gets me closer to my food, my taste, my recipes, and speed.
Last Book Read…The Almost Moon by Alice Sebold
On a Day Off, I’d Likely Be…nude, on my deck, sunning. I won’t tell you my address.
I Never Eat…highly processed foods, except Bugles.
Favorite Place to Dine Out…Azuma Sushi in Hartsdale. They really care about what they serve.
I Never Cook with…margarine. After that, nothing’s off the table and everything is fair game.
Favorite TV Show…CBS Sunday Morning. I hate reality shows. I have enough reality and drama in my life already.
I Hate It When I’m Dining at a Restaurant and…children start to run around and scream while a parent does nothing.
The Most I’d Pay for a Meal…Who’s cooking it? Joël Robuchon? Then, anything he wants.
Favorite Pain Reliever…Don’t use any. Be a man—suffer through it!
My Favorite Website…I don’t have a computer, don’t surf the ’Net, don’t have time.
Food Trend I Hate the Most…Fusion. What are you fusing? Molecular gastronomy is not my cup of tea, either. What does it add?
What Surprised Me Most About Cooking in a Westchester Restaurant Is…Where are the diners Monday through Wednesday?
