Occupation: Student and Animal Care Worker
What is your earliest childhood food memory?
Being forced to eat liver, which I couldn’t stand. I would cut it up into the tiniest pieces and hide it in my mashed potatoes, so I could swallow it without tasting it. Liver still makes me shudder.
What did you eat today?
Toast with jam for breakfast, Asian fried rice for lunch, and for supper fettuccine with sautéed shrimp in an artichoke and roasted garlic cream sauce, with a side of green salad.
What will your kids never be allowed to eat?
Anything that’s too over processed, such as cheese whiz, or something that’s hard to identify as a food product such as bologna. Sugary foods like pop will be limited but allowed on special occasions. I mean you have to have marshmallows when you’re camping!
What do you always have on hand in your fridge?
Fresh herbs, lemon, garlic, good olive oil, Parmesan cheese, and plenty of fresh veggies.
What is your beverage of choice?
For non- alcoholic drinks I like San Pellegrino, Limonata, and iced tea
For alcoholic I like Lychee Martinis and Daiquiris
If you could have dinner with anyone in the history of man, who would it be?
It would be interesting to have dinner with Jean Donaldson and Karen Pryor. I would love to pick their brain about dog training and hear their theories.
Right now though, I would love to just have dinner with my whole family. We’re so far apart and it would be amazing to be together even for a night.
Ok, it’s your last meal ever, what do you have?
It would have to be a lot of food! I would start with a fresh oyster with some kosher salt and lemon. The appetizer would have to be a nice fresh green salad with avocado. The main course would be filet mignon, cooked to medium rare and served with grilled baby potatoes, carrots and beets. Desert would be a sampler of a small molten chocolate cake, a lemon tartlet, and a raspberry sorbet.
