Culinary Q & A with Bettina

Occupation: student of 18 years and counting

What did you eat today?

yogurt + fibre-1 cereal; fruit; a ridiculously expensive organic salad; pork + green veggie stir-fry; pecans + other niblets that i really should stop reaching for

What do you never eat?

hmm, difficult to answer since i eat just about anything. however, i anticipate that if i were offered a plate of organ meats or creepy-crawlies, i would walk away from the table and head to the bathroom to retch.

What is your personal specialty?


What is your favorite kitchen item?

--are we talking about utensils? the ladle, i guess? or maybe shot glasses....i'm fond of drinking non-alcoholic beverages from them, some sort of weird alice-in-wonderland fascination i suppose.

World ends tomorrow. Describe your last meal.

--why must you ask such difficult questions?? probably some sort of yellow-curry lamb + vegetable stirfry (lots of veggies)...chicken-corn chowder...deep-fried wonton...a roundtable of desserts including a half-coconut/half-pistachio gelato from A&P, some sort of chocolate sin, a slice of warm berry pie....and honeydew melon bubble tea, if i had room left in my belly. i dunno. i think this ideal meal (with the exception of the desserts) changes on a daily basis depending on what favorite dish i had most recently or am craving at the moment.

Where do you eat out most frequently?

--i don't eat out all that often, and always at different restaurants. i'd have to say i frequent asian restaurants most often...especially southeast asian (viet, thai, cambodian) and japanese, korean.

What's the best place to eat in Edmonton?

tropika if it weren't for the prices. milestones has some excellent dishes. i'm also partial to cinnzeo.

If you weren't limited by geography, where and what would you eat?

trois rivieres has this shop that has amazing smoked meat sandwiches...kingston boasts a european bakery that routinely sells out really buttery berliners (bismarcks)...bertam valley in malaysia has some amazing roti chanai....ooh, tough to say. i think i can find something in every city that i would go back for.
