In My 2012 Scrapbook, I discussed some of the woes and welevations about my year.
What I didn’t mention was that in 2012, I also ate like a fweaking CHAMP.
You may recall me splitting my pants open after DineLA last January, or how Michael Voltaggio rocked my world, or how I stuffed my face silly with foie gras before the ban last June. Well, my gluttonous eating habits didn’t end there.
In no particular order, here are some of the dewicious dishes that dewighted my taste buds in 2012:
(And no, I have no reason for writing with a lisp. I just felt like it. Don’t worry, I’m finished.)

It’s shocking I don’t weigh 800 pounds. For this, I am grateful.
For the fantastic meals and dining experiences I had last year, I am even more grateful.
