Name at least three of your favorite cuisines

Italian, French and Indian.

What is your favorite vacation spot?

Anyplace tropical for snorkeling.

Describe the most memorable meal you've ever had

It was in Rome at Costa Ballena, a seafood restaurant. It began with a buffet of antipasti, including razor clams. Then I had pasta alla vongole, swordfish involtini with spinach, gelato with fragolini and a cheese plate to die for...washed down with a bottle of Lacryma Christi. All by myself!

What is your cooking level? Beginner, intermediate, advanced, professional, etc... and which type of cuisine is your specialty?

Intermediate. I have taken food and wine classes for years. The best was studying with Marcella Hazan at the French Culinary Institute in New York.

Please tell the group a little bit about your interest in food and cooking

It all started with my Easy Bake oven...


I am a great lover of food and wine, and have an international palate. Would love to meet other enthusiasts.
