  • On how she likes to spend a day off: "Walking through New York City. It's constantly changing. I'll go back to an area I visited four years ago, and it's completely different. But that's a good thing because it means there will always be new neighborhoods to eat my way through."
  • On her best childhood memory: "My mom liked to infuse my life with a lot of magic. When she read my fortune cookies, the predictions were full of princesses and castles and jewels and pirates. When I got old enough to read them, I was shocked to find out how boring they really were!"
  • On her favourite quick recipe: "Hot fudge sundae. But forget the fake syrupy stuff; Melt down a bar of chocolate, mix it into some warmed up whipping cream, and put it on top of ice cream. Add some sprinkles, and you've got a delicious treat."
