Odd Zoë Archer fact: About ten years ago, I randomly decided to enter a contest online and wound up winning a trip to New York to watch a taping of Emeril Lagasse. They flew winners out from every state, and I was the California representative. I felt kind of bad, because I didn’t watch Emeril’s show, but I wanted the tickets plus the prize money, so I went. They made all the winners wear these denim jackets. People were crying in the audience when Emeril came out. I was easily the most ungrateful prize winner ever. But Emeril was very nice when we had our picture taken with him. And I spent almost all my prize money at the Strand Bookstore.  
So, here I am with Emeril and Nico. I can’t get over how young all of us look.
