If it isn't chocolate, it isn't dessert! I love a deep, dark, lush chocolate fudge cake more than anything else!
2. Ever tried to cook something and fail miserably?
Oh goodness yes! Remember this Thanksgiving disaster? My first attempt at making rice crispy squares was a flop too as I forgot to grease the pan and had to soak them out. In my defence, they aren't something my mom ever made when I was growing up so it's not like I had ever seen them made from scratch until I made them myself.
3. Is there a dish you haven't made yet but really want to?
I want to make Ina's chocolate cake. It looks so good in the photos and I love a thick thick icing! I really only eat cake for the icing. I really hope it tastes better than any of the cakes I have baked from scratch as I have never found one that blows me away. Oh who am I kidding? I will buy the box mix at the gourmet store!
4. What is your favorite food?
I won't say chocolate as that would be the obvious answer! I think pizza is my favourite but it has to be good pizza. I have been spoiled in my life and once you have had pizza in Italy it is hard to go back to the North American pizza chains.
5. What is your least favorite food?
There are so many foods I can't stand it's hard to narrow it down to just one! Beef, olives, lobster, cilantro are the first ones that come to mind.
6. Do you have any seasonal meals you like?
Oh I love butternut soup in the fall, roasted veggies, rosemary chicken, a big winter ham...it sounds like I do most of my eating between October and January!
7. What is your comfort food?
I don't know that I really have one as I don't tend to be an emotional eater but on a cold day I love a bowl of soup and toast with butter.
8. Chocolate: milk, dark or white?
Dark...65-70% is ideal though I do love those little hugs - they are a perfect blend of white and milk chocolate.
