We Wrote A Book!

Jane Beiles

Jane Sullivan Beiles (pronounced BAY•liss) is an architectural photographer based in New Canaan, Connecticut.  Her favorite accessory in any space is food – edible props!  Married with three elementary school-aged children, she spends her free time cheering at soccer games and deciding what to pick up for dinner.  Website:

My current food cravings are: Rosie's mini coconut cupcakes from New Canaan, salmon chopped salad from Tavern on Main in Westport and rigatoni Pitti from Bar Pitti in NYC

The only fast food I will eat is: "only" would be misleading but "favorite" is cole slaw from KFC 

If I could be any Iron Chef, I would be: Bobby Flay for his good karma; Mario Batali for his food!

My favorite restaurant in Fairfield County is: Boxcar Cantina

My favorite restaurant in the Tri-State area is: Gramercy Tavern

Restaurant dish I wish I could make at home: Personal cooking talent runs pretty low here so any dish that could taste as good as when someone else prepares it would be my wish!

My go-to dinner party entrée is:  Marinated lamb kabobs 

When I’m not eating, I’m….carrying one of the following over my shoulder:  tripod, yoga mat or one of my three children’s sports bags

Prepared food I have let people think was home-made…not applicable - my guests seem relieved when I reveal that I didn’t prepare the food myself!

I’d rather pick (pumpkins, apples, strawberries):  apples

The last book I enjoyed was:  Rules of Civility by Amor Towles

My favorite movie of all time is: Gone With the Wind – which, if you think about it, is really about food, not romance or war 

My favorite food related movie of all time is: Tie between Big Night and Sideways
