DISH Chef Garreth Dickey on 7-Eleven Salads and Making Things Pop
Each week or so we ask a local chef three burning questions about his or her favorite culinary reads, food shames and best (or worst) meals. This week, we hear from Garreth Dickey of DISH Restaurant and Lounge. Doesn't he totally look like Steve Buscemi?
What are a few of your favorite cookbooks?
King Arthur Flour Baker's Companion, there's not a more soulful American book on baking out there.
A Treasury of Great Recipes by Mary & Vincent Price. I grew up watching this guy's movies. It's more of a collector thing, but he knew how to eat. And the Lucky Peach Quarterly, it keeps me up-to-date on pop culture.
What are a few of your latest food shames?
A Caesar salad from 7-Eleven. Also packaged ramen with coconut milk and fish paste. Smells bad but tastes soooo good. And the five dollar box at Taco Bell. It's great when I'm on a budget, which is always.
Had anything new recently that you're excited about?
Anything I've tried at 20 Feet Seafood Joint. Marc Cassel is nailing it!
