Your favorite cuisine and why: East Coast Italian-American. It's what I grew up eating: spaghetti and meatballs, Parmesans, piccata, Marsala, scaloppine.

Weirdest thing you ever ate: In Nairobi, Kenya, I ate at a restaurant called Carnivore and tried giraffe, zebra, hartebeest (African antelope). I had half the Serengeti in me. Definitely weird.
