To eat?

Roasted bone marrow with sea salt and toast at St. John--with fresh toro tuna sushi--in season--right behind.

To cook?

Probably Daube of Beef Provencale..or Braised Short Ribs--though I do love making a simple Spaghetti a la Chitarra with Pommodoro. For some reason it makes me happy--particularly when I add that finishing shot of olive oil at the end and the pasta sucks up the last of the sauce and sits up pretty on the plate. White truffle risotto is fun--and is always a crowd pleaser. If I'm looking to cause oohs and ahhs and moans of pleasure--without working up too much of a sweat in the kitchen--that's a lay-up.
