Share a memory that involves the color green: I lived in Switzerland as a kid, and my elementary school loooooved to teach us songs from The Sound of Music. I still know all of the words to “Edelweiss,” “The Sound of Music” and “Do Re Mi.” The movie ends with the Von Trapps fleeing to Switzerland (but you knew that), and although it was filmed mostly in Salzburg, Austria, the countryside looks just like part of the Alps I grew up in. I still get a little verklempt when I see Julie Andrews twirling in that meadow.

Favorite Vegetable: My immigrant mother has drilled it in me to never pass up Belgian white asparagus!
