Hope you understand why there’s been radio silence here on the tumblr. I’ve been on the un-tour of a lifetime. The Skirt Steak Supper Series has been an ongoing banquet of some of the most delicious dishes I’ve enjoyed to date. No hyperbole there. FACT. I’m still thinking about the manti Ana Sortun and Barbara Lynch made on Tuesday night at Sportello in Boston. But, once I let my mind go there, the stomach pangs start, and next thing you know, I’ve got to have Ana’s shakshuka, or, the fried chicken livers I shared with Anne Quatrano last Thursday at her restaurant Abattoir in Atlanta. It never ends, the missing of the plates. And it would only make you all jealous.
Traveling and eating is a time-consuming business. So is talking up a storm about the book you wrote, which is, these days, par for the publishing course. Chatting is what I’ve been doing. There’s been a whole lot of radio, and not as much silence as I’m accustomed to.
Here are a few links to what I’ve been saying and writing about the Skirt Steak experience. No pressure to click on any of them. Just sharing is all.
1. Grub Street NY posted an excerpt from the book
2. Nozlee Samadzadeh over at Food52.com asked a few questions.
3. So did my friend Mollie Chen at Birchbox.com.
4. Fellow writer Andrew Friedman and I talked shop, in two parts.
5. Lynn Rossetto Kasper hosted me on her legendary NPR radio show The Splendid Table
6. The inspiring and talented polymath Michael Harlan Turkell invited me to his radio show, “The Food Seen,” on the Heritage Radio Network
That’s more than enough to bore and annoy anyone. So, I’ll stop.
Thanks for your continued support, dear readers.
