What's your favorite restaurant in the world, where is it, and what makes it so wonderful?

Jeanne: What I'd really love doesn't quite exist anymore-- I'd love to experience the culture and cuisine of Ancient Rome. Failing that, I'd be happy spending serious time in the Mediterranean, clambering over Roman ruins. Andrew: The Middle East.

Have you ever dreamed of creating your own cookbook? What would your focus be?

Jeanne: Hard to pick, but a recent trip to Paris had me steeped in French history and chocolate soup! Andrew: b-day in Mexico: climbing pyramids at Coba, eating authentically prepared food in a Mayan village, and swimming in an underground lake.

We love writers, photographers and artists who love food! Are you interesed in helping us publish our blog and magazine?

Mizu, on North Avenue. It has an extraordinary chef, and every few months hosts a kaiseki dinner: a traditional, multi-course, seasonal Japanese feast, with dishes like a pickled seaweed and raw quail egg shooter and shellfish sashimi.


Actually, this is two people joining with one profile: myself, Jeanne, and my spouse, Andrew. We're both serious-ish foodies, avid travelers, history buffs, and that's about all that's relevant that I can think of at the moment.
