I love music.

I write about the music I like and have purchased for the benefit of better understanding it and sharing my preferences with others.

Favorite things

Chicken and Cauliflower What has become one of my favorite meals is roast chicken, following a recipe by Thomas Keller, chef of several well-known restaurants, including Per Se in New York, and The French Laundry in California. His recipe is for a "dry" chicken; he roasts his at high temperature for just one hour, seasoned with thyme, salt, and pepper. After being carved, he bastes the meat in melted butter, and to mine, I added lemon and shallots. More thyme. It's infinitely satisfying, especially with slices of French baguette to sop-up the sauces. Tonight, it was with the music of l"arpgeggiata with Christina Pluhar, with their album Los Imposibles. Good food, good music, and good company together can transport you.
