YES! I love the character Hannibal, as well as the movie. Sir Anthony Hopkins breaths exquisite life into his portrayal of Dr. Lecter, and it leaves a memorable and fond impression on me.

I’m dedicated to the original two movies (Silence of the Lambs and Hannibal), yet willing still to embrace new representations of my favourite character. ❤

It’s arguably the best five-star restaurant in North Texas, and it’s all served in the back of a Conoco gas station.

It’s leaded or unleaded outside, rack of lamb or duck à l’orange inside. Not to mention, the country’s best bread pudding, featured on the Food Network’s Diner’s Drive Ins and Dives and Cooking With Paula Deen magazine.

A few weeks ago, I sat down with the owner and head chef behind Chef Point Cafe, Franson Nwaeze.
