Dinner in Hand
New Rochelle (914) 380-5084
Dish I Do the Best Shrimp Francese and chicken Francese. Chicken Francese is a catering favorite, and I have honestly made thousands!
Favorite Guilty Pleasure Food Carvel chocolate and vanilla soft-serve cones with loads of chocolate crunchies and extra crunchies for dipping.
Culinary Hero Julia Child. She was fearless, naïve, and passionate—and six feet tall like me!
Last Book Read Kitchen Confidential by Anthony Bourdain. I laughed out loud. His kitchen stories are crude, honest, and hysterical at times. I have experienced most of them myself!
I Never Eat…game, sea urchin, and beef liver or organ meats.
Favorite Place to Dine Out I have been going to the Good Earth, a restaurant in London, for twenty-plus years. They make fried seaweed with sugar that is a must. My favorite restaurant in Manhattan is Kittichai. I always overeat when I go.
What Diners Don’t Know But Should Salt is not evil! One of my favorite finishing salts is a flaked Cyprus salt. I cook and bake with Kosher salt only.
I Never Cook with… caraway seeds. I can’t stand them!
