  19. 1) What is your favourite restaurant (apart from your own) Nook, a little Italian restaurant a few blocks from where I live. 2) What is your most important ingredient in the kitchen, and why? I’m with @liuzhou – my mood. 3) What tool is most important in your kitchen, and why? Knives, as they are the most used. 4) Which restaurant, anywhere, is your dream destination to dine? St John Bread & Wine, London (this could and does change from day to day but this is today’s dream). 5) What trend do you see becoming popular in restaurants in the next year? I don’t know. 6) What trend would you most like to see go away? Food served in large bowls designed so that inevitably the cutlery slides down and has to be constantly fished out.
