My idea of comfort food is not traditional. My mother being a baby boomer, I got my first taste of sushi at the age of 2, with sushi being all the rage in the '80s. My ultimate local comfort food always comes from Heart Rock Sushi in Fort Lauderdale. It's been there as long as I can remember, and every dish I've had is fresh and stimulating to the palate. My comfort formula: a steaming bowl of seaweedy, tofuey, sorta nutty miso soup ("brown food tastes good") followed by my favorite dish, the chirashi rice bowl. It just gives me warm satisfaction. Sashimi slices of white tuna, salmon and tuna along with prepared shrimp and octopus are fresh every time and give a clean, buttery mouthfeel. Served with sliced avocado, pickled ginger and wasabi over a sticky mound of vinegared short-grain rice with toasted sesame seeds... I'm regretting going into such detail because now I'm starving! Love Anne and her show, and love the paper.


Beef carpaccio from Capital GrillIt's the perfect dish, fresh rare meat framing the plate with crispy baby arugala drizzles with the right amount if acidity topped with the salty flavor of parmigiana cheese.


Ann is about cooking like a real chef,or a rock star(meaning her )  I will go buy the book, thank you very much, as I like her recipes. Did you go to the book signing?? Let us know what she was like, and what she had to say.

My ultimate dining-out comfort meal is a giant, loaded turkey sandwich (a mix of dark and white meat) on thick rye bread with coarse spicy brown mustard and a log of half-sour pickel, only at Nick's Restaurant, 105 E. Hallandale Beach Boulevard. Yeah, it's real turkey and you can actually order dark or white meat. Been going there since high school days of 1988 and will continue to go there as long as I live in the area. lerxst15(a)
