You Are What You Eat, Molly Wizenberg

And now, a special non-Stockholm, non-New York YAWYE!

Molly.jpgName:  Molly Wizenberg

Occupation:  food writer, sometime photographer, and co-owner of a soon-to-be restaurant

Neighborhood:  Ballard, Seattle

Relationship status:  married

What did you eat today? 

As of right now (2:30 pm): homemade granola with milk, banana bread with cinnamon sugar, blueberries, rigatoni with sweet onions and leeks and chives and ricotta salata, more banana bread, more blueberries.

What do you never eat? 

I have textural issues with raw oysters.  And brain.  I think brain is my final frontier, food-wise.  [

Complete this sentence:  In my refrigerator, you can always find:

eggs, extra sharp cheddar, milk, hot sauces, jam, peanut butter, Roland Dijon mustard, unsalted butter, and Polaroid film.

What is your favorite kitchen item?

I love my kitchen towels. They’re all very soft and well worn, and many of them have stripes.

Where do you eat out most frequently?

Lately, a taqueria called Malena’s.  It’s in our neighborhood, and it’s not really all that great, to be perfectly honest, but their guacamole is solid.  So we get guacamole, rice, pinto beans, and a few corn tortillas, along with salsa and chips.  It’s cheap and quick and always hits the spot.

World ends tomorrow.  What would you like for your last meal?

I’m terrible at this kind of stuff.  But I think I would choose a cheese pie at Di Fara and a beer.  And then a scoop of Graeter’s black raspberry chip ice cream, on a cone.

I had a blast with Molly in Rome last month.  She’s a lady.  I’m such a fan.  If you were in Rome on the same day that we were, you might have seen Molly looking totes cycle chic in sweet black ankle strap flats, jeans, a wavy auburn ponytail and Audrey Hepburn specs.  I was the greasemonkey riding next to her, sweating through some Old Navy cankle khakis and a saggy green wifebeater.  You can follow Molly’s adventures at orangette.blogspot.com.

    Hooray! Giant fan of both of yours. Molly, thanks for the shout out to Brooklyn (DiFara); Ganda, I beg to differ – you could never look unchic.
