Do you have a personal blog?
I barely have a personal life.
What is your day job, or rather, what do you do when you're not food blogging?
I'm an actress and a playwright in NYC.
How long have you been blogging with Slashfood and what is
your favorite post?
I've only been with Slashfood about a week. I love it here! My favorite post so far is...this one.
Do you have any non-food-related, non-blogging hobbies?
Euphemisms, marine archaeology, esoterica, accidental rhyming, dresses, rating things on a scale of 1-10, chocolate, Sondheim, anomalies, trinomials, analogies, Egyptology, lighthearted verbal abuse, comparing and contrasting things, laughing till my face hurts a lot, singing with friends, and making all kinds of art.
Not every foodie does, so we have to ask. Do you cook?
Yes, I do! I'm particularly fond of perfecting the recipe for the perfect chocolate chip cookie.
What is your most prized utensil/gadget in the kitchen?
I've always liked the spatula.
List three things in your refrigerator right now.
Apples, Newman's Own dressing, and a bottle of Moet.
You have to impress a date with a meal. What are you going to make?
Probably steak or beef stroganoff. Red meat is often the way to a man's heart. If he happened to be a light eater, I like to think I'm rather good with scallops.
What is the last thing you ate?
Confession time – what do you eat that will get you banned from Slashfood?
Fudgesicles. Frozen vegetables. I've been known to eat salsa and tomato sauces from the jar with a spoon.
If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Your Mom makes the best _____.
Pork tenderloin with mint sauce. Dad grills it. It tastes like love.
Which chef would you most like to have come into your kitchen and cook you dinner?
I would like Martha Stewart to come over and make me dinner. But that's a power thing.
With whom would you most like to eat dinner?
Somebody funny. Dinner should be the biggest meal and the biggest laugh of the day.
Your drink of choice?
Where was your best restaurant dining experience?
I was at this restaurant in Florida near Paradise Island, and a deer came up to near our table on the deck. The manager pretended it had never happened before. Liar. But oh, the beef medallions...
At a restaurant in the East Village, NYC, I was eating granola and a roach crawled out of the bowl from which I was eating. I was convinced that roach babies were hatching in my stomach for a week.
Do you want fries with that?
Probably. Especially if they're sweet potato fries. (Unless I'm in a play with a tight costume. You know.)
What foods do you think should be banished from existence?
What do you see as the biggest "thing" in food for the coming year?
I'm waiting for dessert to have a huge renaissance.
