3 Things With Karin Gillespie
Augusta author and passionate foodie Karin Gillespie has a definite sense of adventure when it comes to dining and life in general. She and husband, David Neches, have the perfect marriage: He loves to cook and does it very well. She loves to eat.
Most memorable meal: I’ve been lucky enough to eat some transcendental meals: poached lobster at Eleven Madison Park in New York City, foie gras at Le Grand Colbert in Paris, wild shrimp rémoulade at Commander’s Palace in New Orleans. But my most memorable meal was a salad topped with a soft-boiled egg at Cakes and Ale in Decatur, Georgia. To be precise it was a quail egg over a curly pile of frisse, but what was inspiring was that a dish so seemingly humble could have such a complex and frisky blend of flavors.
If you could have any three people from all time at a dinner party, who would your dream dinner guests be? The Dalai Lama, Dorothy Parker and my husband. (Someone needs to cook for this fabulous fete and it won’t be me.)
Favorite kitchen utensil? The fork. Hands down. Or the spoon if crème brulee is being served.
