I'm enjoying this Q&A very much. Thank you, Eric, for participating and being both eloquent and gracious with your answers.

I would like to know what are your comfort food/s? The things that you crave from time to time and would sorely miss if you couldn't have them.

Cravings? Have you got a few hours? I'm not a big fan of the term "comfort food,'' as it has come to mean soft, gloppy infantilizing baby food. But as far as cravings go, spaghetti carbonara, fresh bread, Bavarian pretzel rolls from Silver Moon bakery, tea-smoked duck, a big ol' dry-aged steak, Dannon coffee yogurt (except when you get a super-sweet batch), a soft, runny epoisses, oysters, cherries, roast suckling pig, lobster roll, wild salmon with pinot noir or pinot gris, a great hamburger, country ham and biscuits, the freshest possible sushi, fresh beer, still-warm mozzarella, twice-cooked pork, i think i better stop now......

A very broad range of cuisines represented there. I wouldn't have expected any less. :biggrin:
