Aarti Sequeira (left), 31, Los Angeles, Cal.
Three people, alive or dead, whom you'd like to invite to a dinner party, and what culinary delights would you prepare for your guests: My grandmother (my mum's mum) and my granddad (my dad's dad) because I never got to meet either of them. I have to go with Jesus, too, because he's a great conversationalist and always brings the best wine. More >>

Tom Pizzica (center), 32, San Francisco, Cal.
Favorite restaurant: Amada in Philly; Monk's Kettle and Underground Sushi Time in San Francisco. More >>

Dzintra Dzenis (right), 44, Austin, Tex.
Three foods you can't live without (other than bread or water): Sushi, green vegetables and a great big juicy steak
Food you won't go near: Anything with too many arms and legs. More >>
