Q & A

What would you have for your last meal?

Do I know it’s my last meal? Is it planned? Who else is there? Am I really, really old? Are we celebrating? It all depends—as it does every day.

Your favorite question for a client?

Are you going to eat that?

How about a favorite childhood food memory?

I grew up in Texas, so I’ll always have a soft spot for Texas barbeque.

Where you go in San Francisco or the surrounding Bay Area to escape?

For years, I’ve been getting up early to run. I love to have the city to myself at dawn.
