Today, the Virtual Book Tour takes us on two stops. The first stop is Cork and Knife where site proprietor Chip Griffin asked me some really great questions which I enjoyed answering. His readers asked me even more questions in the comments which I’m about to answer over there, so be in the lookout for that. Stop #2 is one of my favorite music blogs, Largehearted Boy. I was deeply flattered to be asked to write a Book Notes essay–an essay in which I discuss the music that motivated the book. Instead of that, though, I shared the music I like to cook to and paired specific recipes with specific albums. Don’t judge me for my show tunes.
