Burma Superstar cover

If you are lucky enough to live in the San Francisco Bay Area, perhaps you regularly stop at the Burma Superstar restaurants to enjoy their take on Southeast Asian cuisine.  If not, I recently spoke with Kate Leahy, co-author along with Burma Superstar founder, Desmond Tan, of a fascinating book filled with authentic recipes, great photos, and stories about the country now known as Myanmar.  

A major part of Myanmar's cuisine is a fusion of Thai, Chinese, Indian, and Laotian influences. Many of the spices and main components will seem familiar, but how they are utilized to fashion finished dishes definitely captivated me.  Pay special attention when Kate talks about tofu, and eating tea or "Myanmar's most mysterious food."

A Personal Connection Type Show

G ManI decided to put together a show with artists that I have had one-on-one contact with, from the usual concerts, to interviews, chance meetings, personal correspondance (in the case of the overseas folks), and even relatives. Fun stuff ahead. Starting the show with Blue Mountain, The Blue Band, and Bo Ramsey, to get a solid midwest vibe going, and then its on to Cracker, The Host Country, The Soul Searchers, Greg Brown, and many more. 37 songs in all, I think, and lots of great jams in store for you. 2 PM or 2 AM, I got you covered.
