Favorite Food: French fries are my favorite food, hands down! I like all types of fries – sweet potato, garlic, truffle – you name it!

Favorite Local Restaurant: I’m new to Sacramento, but so far my favorite restaurant has been Hook & Ladder in Midtown. The ambiance is great and the food is amazing – fresh and flavorful options for pizzas, salads and main courses.

Favorite dining experience of all time: My all-time favorite dining experience was the first time I had oysters at a waterfront restaurant in Monterey. I can’t remember the name of the restaurant but it was perfectly authentic seafood in a picture perfect setting – we ate fresh oysters on the water in the summertime.

Earliest food-related memory from childhood: This isn’t exactly a fond memory, but I remember eating stir fry as a kid and I was not a fan. I wasn’t allowed to leave the dinner table until I was finished! Things have certainly changed because I enjoy a good stir fry from time to time.
