What is your guilty pleasure? There are sooo many...currently Cinnamon Toast Crunch with peanut butter milk.
If you could eat only one food for the rest of your life, what would it be? Tacos...and Pizza because it folds like tacos.
What does your family beg you to make at home? My 11-year-old daughter always wants me to make mac and cheese, and my wife likes me to prepare ceviche, crudo, coctel – anything raw or marinated seafood.
Describe the best meal you've ever had. My birthday meal this year in the Bay of Cadiz at Aponiente. The meal of all local seafood was served inside of a 19th century tide mill. I teared up half way through the meal as I am a Gulf Coast kid and diver and love the sea...we even had a drink served in the dark made with melon and bio-luminescent crustacea that glowed in the dark as you swirled. Best meal of my life. My wife is to blame for that.
What is your favorite local ingredient? This is an unfair question. This is like trying to choose your favorite child. I have no real answer to this. I will go with our Gulf Coast seafood FTW.
If you can make a meal for anyone, who would it be and why? I used to contemplate cooking for Anthony Bourdain or my favorite "Fat Kid" David Chang. Now I just really enjoy cooking for my wife. No judgement, she loves my food and will try anything no matter how esoteric or crazy it may be.
