I like to think I'm a chocolate chip cookie, but obviously I'm more of a cornflake-chocolate chip-marshmallow cookie, seemingly simple, easily gettable.
When did your love of desserts begin?
I have had a sweet tooth since I was a kid. I was a picky eater, and the only certainty in my diet was dessert daily!

What is your favorite cookbook for desserts?
My favorite is "The Joy of Cooking". I use it less for exact recipes and more for inspiration and starting points.
Are there two flavors that go together well that seem odd but work perfectly?
Two strange flavors that work well together are celery (root or stalks) and strawberry. I also like red hots in ice cream.
Is there anyone in the food industry that you look up to?
I admire Wylie Dufresne, Alex Stupak, and David Chang (owner of the Momofuku restaurant group).
