We Wrote A Book!

Emma Doody

Quick Facts: Cook and food lover. Wine enthusiast. Arabic speaker. Cornell graduate. Blogger. Jane Austen fan. Lifelong learner. Holly Golightly meets Julia Child.

My current food cravings are: Anything unusual that I’ve never encountered before! And I’m always craving Taco Loco’s guacamole.

The only fast food I will eat is: The McDonald’s McRib; the fact that it only emerges for a limited time makes it strangely alluring. 

If I could be any Iron Chef, I would be: I would be a Top Chef contestant Jennifer Carroll!  I admire both her culinary talent and her command in the kitchen.

My favorite restaurant in Fairfield County is: Barcelona Stamford for its ever-evolving tapas selections and wine list.

My favorite restaurant in the Tri-State area is: Colicchio & Sons and Fishtail by David Burke, both in New York City

Restaurant dish I wish I could make at home: Colicchio & Son’s Beef Tartare with Smoked Egg Vinaigrette

My go-to dinner party entrée is:  Individual, oven-roasted Cornish hens if the occasion calls, but barbequing on the grill is my favorite!

When I’m not eating, I’m…. teaching English literature.

Prepared food I have let people think was home-made… I can’t do it… the guilt takes over and I fess up.

I’d rather pick (pumpkins, apples, strawberries): apples, but I love to cook with and eat them all.

The last book I enjoyed was: Life of Pi by Yann Martel and Emma by Jane Austen

My favorite movie of all time is: The Princess Bride

My favorite food related movie of all time is: Ratatouille
