Dish You Do the Best Foie gras.

Wine of Choice 1989 Guigal Côte Rôtie La Mouline ($720). I’ll never forget it. It was the wine of my life.

Favorite Guilty Pleasure Food Entenmann’s Chocolate Glazed Donuts. My wife says, ‘How can you eat that crap?’

Favorite Cuisine Indian. The flavors are bold but sophisticated, complex but subtle.

Culinary Hero My wife. She’s my super-taster. Her ability to assess what’s wrong with a dish I’m working on is uncanny. She also can tell me what will fix it—but not until I’ve pulled all of my hair out.

If Not a Chef, You’d Be… A pilot. In 1987, I got my license. Flying is better than any video game.

Favorite Kitchen Utensil A pen. If I don’t write it down when I get an inspiration, it’ll be gone in ten minutes.

Last Book Read The Omnivore’s Dilemma by Michael Pollan—a real eye-opener. A must-read for anyone who eats.
