says... 'My answer to "what's
your favorite read" changes
every time I'm asked it, but I
can say that as far as cookbook
authors, Paul Prudhomme*, Andries
de Groot and, yes, Nigella
Lawson are folks I enormously
admire. Elizabeth Gilbert is a
fantastic writer as well as a
great person, and I look forward
to her next book with bated
breath. I am in awe of Alice
Munro. As a kid I was a bit of a
sci-fi and fantasy geek, and
read Douglas Adams'
Hitchhiker's trilogy on a
bi-yearly basis, and was a big
fan of Pyrdain Chronicles
by Lloyd Alexander.'
