Get to know Salt and Pepper

We were interviewed by fellow blogger Foodie Pop. It took us a few days to get our answers coordinated, but we finally got them down.

Rules are as follows:

1. Leave me a comment saying, “Interview me.”
2. I will respond by emailing you five questions. I get to pick the questions.
3. You will update your blog with the answers to the questions. Be sure you link back to the original post.
4. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the same post.
5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.

Now...on to the questions:

1. If you could only read one book for the rest of your life, which one would it be?

Salt: The Complete Works of Shakespeare - everytime you read it you get something new out of it.
Pepper: the actual Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy should this book ever actually exist.

2. What is a favorite food memory?

Salt: A post Thanksgiving Brunch - we were living in DC and almost all of our friends were from places other than DC so naturally would leave for holidays. We still wanted to celebrate the holiday with our friends so we organized a brunch a few days after Thanksgiving when everyone got back to town. Also fresh turkeys are ridiculous cheap right after Thanksgiving when stores are trying to get rid of them.

Pepper: New Year's Eve 2006 - we hosted a dinner for 20 people to celebrate the new year. The menu included scallop ceviche, wild mushroom soup, herb crusted lamb, and vanilla panna cotta for dessert. It was a lot of work, but everything came out beautifully and the timing was perfect...midnight came just as we were serving dessert and champagne.

3. A fast food chain offers you $50 a day for the rest of your life to eat one meal off their menu every day. The alternative is they give you a $1,000 a day, but a loved one must now take your place and eat all three meals off their menu. You are welcome to share the money, but only one person can take your place. So for the rest of YOUR life, this person can eat only fast food. Which do you choose and why?

Salt: I wouldn't take the deal.

Pepper: After watching Morgan Spurlock's documentary Super Size Me, I can't imagine subjecting anyone to that much fast food. And I'm just not that into fast food. So I'd turn down the deal.

4. Everyone has a favorite dish, or two. Pick one of yours and name a song that makes you feel as good as that dish.

Salt: Food - Eel and avacado sushi roll. Song - No song can make me feel as good as eating this.

Pepper: Food - Roasted duck with rose petal sauce. Song - What a wonderful world by Louie Armstrong

5. If you could interview anyone, who would you choose and why? Anyone, no limitations.

Salt: William Randolf Hearst - there is a lot of speculation about him but nobody really knew why he did what he did. So it would be interesting to get a little insight into what he was up to and what he was thinking...or if he was just crazy. Which would make for a good interview.

Pepper: The Dalai Lama - I've heard him speak in front of a huge crowd, but would love to sit down with him to talk with him one on one.
