Sommelier and pastry chef at Vinoteque to me after the hour we chatted post-Oscars.
Other topics we discussed: cinnamon, celiac disease, molecular gastronomy (and my absolute hatred of it), noodles, rice, paddy wagons, Scientology, how “Yo Ireland!” can be a term of endearment, fried chicken, “bean juice,” hookin’ for the Earth, downtown LA, homelessness, and how Black Irish ≠ Black.
Good night. A very good night. 🙂
