Her favorite sweet and salty combo is chocolate chip cookies with sea salt.

"My daughter’s giant chocolate chip chewy cookies with maldon sea salt sprinkled on top. So delicious, and really good with homemade vanilla ice cream in between two of those giant cookies."

Her favorite meal to cook is breakfast.

"I am a creative breakfast cook. I have my own chickens and my own eggs. As a result, I try to use them in different creative ways — mostly on Sunday mornings when I invite my horseback-riding friends over for breakfast."

The first dish she mastered was pierogi.

"A very difficult dish: sweet cabbage pierogi. It takes a day."

The best cooking advice she ever got was to not be afraid in the kitchen.

"Don’t be afraid of ingredients, and try to master difficult tasks. It’ll make the simpler tasks much easier."

Her signature dish is pie.

"I’m a good pie maker."

Apple pies are her favorite.

"My favorite pie is when my apples are just freshly picked off my apple trees. I have a lot of apple trees, every different kind of apple, and I mix them all up."

Her favorite fried dish is homemade potato gaufrette cooked in olive oil.

Her favorite pizza topping is baby peas.

"Petits pois. Beautiful, tiny green peas and a good, creamy mozzarella cheese and maybe a little bit of ricotta underneath it all."

She can't pick a favorite burger topping.

"My favorite burger toppings would be ... oh, I have a lot of them. I like Swiss cheese; I like American cheese, melted onto the burgers. I like relish, but homemade relish. Mustard, French mustard. Ketchup, lettuce, a slice of really good ripe tomato. I also like foie gras cooked in the burger. You can tell that I only eat one burger a year, but it has to be like that — big, fat, tall humongous."

Her favorite social media platform is Instagram.

"I’m a visual person and I like posting pictures."
