Describe your perfect meal. Anything Southern with amazing company.

What food won't you eat? I'll give any a try but if I don't like the texture there wont be much of a food romance.

What would you like to try but haven't yet? Alligator or bison.

Favorite food person? I don't have an all-time favorite. But I enjoy Andrew Carmellini, Mark Bittman, and Paula Deen is a riot and only slightly reminds me of my mother.

When did you first realize you were a serious eater? In high school when I wanted to go eat sushi and my friends and family wanted nothing to do with it. This expanded even more once I moved to New York.

What do your family and friends think of your food obsessions? My parents probably wish I would save my money for rent or, you know, the future. My friends love being introduced to new restaurants all the time.

Favorite food sites or blogs? I enjoy Kimberly, Serious Eats (of course), and Grub Street.

Who's your go-to person for restaurant recommendations? I trust Kimberly Belle's opinion, as well as my friend Adam.

And what's the best recommendations they've ever given you? Spasso was suggested by KB and I enjoy it. My roommate Tao has given me some great Chinese tips.

What is your favorite meal of the day and where do you get it? I love a well-made sandwich. The Underground Lunch has different sandwiches everyday: local, organic, and one block away from my apartment.

Do you ever cook? What's the best dish you make? I love to cook! I tend to cook a lot of Italian. I make some tasty meatballs from scratch. My current obsession is avocado pasta. Also love my mama's southern French toast.
