1. What is your favorite tool in the kitchen and why?
Right now it's my pink handled Kyocera chef's knife. It's a joy to use... feels like you're cutting through clouds.
2. What's in your pantry?
Well, since I share a home with the One Lucky Duck office, I have a pretty full pantry available. But my favorites right now are pumpkinseed oil and macadamia oil for salads. Ever since I tried that liver flush many years ago (where you're meant to drink a cup of olive oil) i can't quite stomach olive oil (sad!). I love nut and seed oils for their intense flavor. And my new dog can't seem to get enough coconut butter.
3. What's your favorite meal comprised of?
I go through phases... for a while it was our kale and herb salad with pumpkinseed dressing and pumpkinseed macadamia parmesan, plus hemp seeds. But right now I'm on a spicy sesame salad kick. It's shredded cabbage, carrots, and beets, with cilantro leaves, salted cashews and black sesame seeds, sesame dressing and wasabi aioli. It's really crunchy! Then for dessert, one of our Mallomars. I rarely have time to prepare food for myself so everything's from One Lucky Duck.
