Favorite foods: Grilled cheese with mayo, not butter. Actually, cheese in almost any form. Ice cream. Oysters and crab (but no crab stick, please!). Mango, pineapple, or raspberry anything.
Last bite on earth: A platter of manchego cheese, jamón ibérico, a salad of roasted red peppers with sherry vinegar, and some good bread.
