Favorite Salt & Why: Ack! Why oh why do people ask me this? Salt, I love thee like childhood summer! Only more, I love thee like salt. And maybe like a dream I’ve yet to dream, I love the ones that linger not in my cupboard, but the ones just around the bend. The salt from the seashore village I have not yet visited. The salt that arrives tomorrow, unsolicited, in a bound and frayed parcel whose postage stamps read like Aztec hieroglyphs. I love the salt offered to me in the palm of a stranger's hand, or by the pinch from the person sitting across from me, her eyes glittering.
Favorite Chocolate & Why: Today my favorite chocolate is the Bonnat Selva Maya. The reason why is that it reminds me; no matter how much I mistrust awards, no matter how much we encourage people to look beyond awards, occasionally the awards do get it right, and call attention to something truly special.
Favorite Bitters & Way to Use It: Jeepers, I’ve found myself putting chocolate bitters in the most unlikely things. Any booze that touches wood, from bourbon to scotch to anejo tequila to rum to many of the vermouths that we put in those and other spirits. They all love chocolate bitters. It’s my go-to secret ingredient, because I add just a little, just a hint. Extra deliciousness with no-one the wiser.
Hobby/Pasttime when not working: I’m always working. But I define work as play.

Favorite Salt & Why: Having spent a month in Cyprus, I LOVE all of our Cypriot Salts, but Black Diamond is my "go to" for all things avocado.
Favorite Chocolate & Why: Our Francois Pralus Ghana Bar. It's the ultimate chocolate experience.
Favorite Bitters & Way to Use It: The Orange and Fig Sycophant by Crude. It will elevate any drink but I think it makes a beautiful Old Fashioned.
Hobby/Pasttime when not working: I practice yoga, love trying out new restaurants, and traveling to see my kids.
