Ingredient you love to cook with: Foie gras. It's sensual and still slightly taboo. My love for it will never end.
Most overrated ingredient: Celery. It's a necessary evil that I don't love. I'll usually avoid it at all cost.
Most underrated ingredient: White pepper. It's the only pepper I use in my kitchen. I'm not fond of the appearance of black pepper.
Something always found in your kitchen: Laughter -- we laugh and joke so much. If it weren't for the amount of fun, we have we would all go insane.
Something never found in your kitchen: I know we used it on Mother's Day, but I don't like phyllo. It's messy after it's been cooked, and it's frustrating to work with. People that use it well deserve trophies.
Something always found in your fridge at home: Peanut M&M's. I can and have lived on them.
You're relaxing on a night off. What are you drinking?: Vouvrey Chenin Blanc is my true love. If it's not wine, it's Fernet.
And eating?: That's a tough one, because I'm probably restaurant hopping from place to place.
And listening to or watching?: I haven't watched TV in over a year, so I can almost guarantee you I'm listening to DeVotchKa.
