  1. 1. I can’t narrow it down to one – so I’ll give you my top 5: Zola’s (Washington DC), Trinity (Keyport NJ), High Finance (Alburquerque NM), Simon Pearce (Windsor VT), and Tavern on the Green (NYC)

    2. Goat Cheese

    3. Australian Shiraz (the spicier the better)

    4. Yes – on a kobe burger with truffle butter at Trinity (see #1)

    5. Sea Salt & Black Pepper

  2. 1. Sadly, I believe my truly fine dining days are behind me. And it was so long ago, that I can’t remember my favorite. Two things stand out for me though, the time I first had escargot in Ft. Lauderdale, and this place http://lerelaisrestaurant.com/ in Louisville, KY. I don’t remember what I ordered, but I remember that I loved it, and the place was really interesting. That’s in this country. There was also Italy – where I never had a bad meal.

    2.Derby Sage

    3. Sangiovese

    4. Yes, but I was not old enough to appreciate it. I may still not be.

    5. Rosemary and Olive Oil.

  3. 1) Think about the best meal you ever ate in a restaurant. What was the restaurant? Gasthof Albblick in Beinberg, Germany

    2) What is your favorite kind of cheese? Pepper Jack

    3) What is your favorite varietal of wine? I don’t drink wine

    4) Have you ever eaten foie gras? If so, did you like it? Yes and it tasted like ass.

    5) What is your favorite flavor of potato chip? Sour Cream and Onion

  4. 1) A ribs place called Bones in Odense, Denmark. Best ribs, best salad bar ever. Second best: Smugglers Inn, in Calgary, Alberta, Canada

    2) Spiced Gouda, straight from The Netherlands (it has cumin seeds in it)

    3) I prefer Diet Coke, but if pressed I’d say gewurztraminer.

    4) I have. I did not. Oooh blechy. Ick. Must go eat something now to get the remembered taste out of my mouth.

    5) Hmmm. Hard one. Lime & black pepper. (Salt n’ vinegar, if you want a more mainstream flavour choice.

  5. 1. Port of Call in New Orleans. You’ll laugh, but it was the best burger I’ve ever had in my life. I know, burgers in the heart of Creole, but we went back 3 times in a week. Ask Lori. LOL

    2. Can’t go wrong with aged cheddar (unless you spot mold, then it’s aged too long)

    3. Homemade wine we had on our honeymoon in Italy. OMG It’s what started me drinking wine.

    4. Frog grass? No I’ve never had fois gras. Did you like it?

    5. Oregano flavored (unfortunately they only sell it in Europe. But in the states, I’d say Salt & Vinagar.

    4.

  6. 1. Best meal ever? That is too hard, I have had a lot of good food. Most recently it was a 6 course meal at Beast in Portland (motto: praise the lard)

    2. Soft and a bit stinky. One of my favorites is Red Hawk from Cowgirl Creamery in California. It is a triple-cream cow cheese. Yum.

    3) As an Oregonian I have to say Pinot Noir (we can get good local ones).

    4) I have and I used to not like it at all – so greasy. (I do like pate generally, so that is not the problem). Then I had a foie gras “bon bon” at Beast (see Q1) that whipped the fg into a mousse-y consistency and topped it with a little sea salt. Wow. Last week I had a “french kiss” (brandy soaked prune stuffed with foie gras) that was amazing. I am still not crazy about slabs of foie gras.

    5) Wasabi but I will eat most kinds.
