Five words to describe you: Demanding, impatient, irreverent, opinionated, generous.
Four words to describe Rancho Pinot: Unique, welcoming, honest, delicious.
Favorite food smell: Fresh garlic, Italian parsley & lemon zest: gremolata!
Favorite cookbook: Zuni Café by Judy Rodgers.
An ingredient you love to cook with and why: Onions. I love their versatility. They can add a spicy bite when used raw or marinated. And I love all the different shades of flavor when cooked...crispy fried, quickly browned or slowly melted into caramel goodness.
Most over-rated ingredient: Micro anything.
Most under-rated ingredient: Lemon juice...it's the universal "corrector."
Something always found in your kitchen: Good olive oil & sea salt.
Something never found in your kitchen: White pepper.
Something always found in your fridge: An embarrassingly high ratio of wine to actual food.
