The Saffron Tales-an Interview with Yasmin Khan

The Saffron Tales

One specific element about my personality that I noticed last week was how uplifted I feel when talking abut food.  Now, those of you who know me are probably wondering if it's really possible I did not know that about myself.  I knew it.  Two recent instances seriously reinforced how talking and cooking continuously inspire me. 

Neither instance was an "aha" moment, but both left me feeling animated and rejuvenated.  First, I was privileged to speak with some students, who are studying and working in agriculture.  That event gave me the opportunity to relate a few stories about food producers, and let the students taste several amazing products.  The result of a session like this is always the same:  eyes light up, the energy in the room buzzes with excitement, and everyone wants another taste. I leave with a big smile etched on my face.

Food For A Lively Soul

RRThere are seven longs songs that everything else sort of weaves in and out of during the show. In the seven plus minutes category: The Moody Blues, The Paperhead, Head Machine, The Green Pajamas, Paul Kantner & David Crosby, Loop, and Dredg. Having said that, I am focusing equally on bands that are unknown relative to the above list. We are deep into the psychedlia, and it will not be until August 12 that I start playing full albums again. Here is a teaser: I just bought a CD that is my first candidate for record of the year. That will be coming soon. In the meantime, if you need some great music to help you through early Saturday morning, or Monday morning... tune in. Cool Breeze

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."

Great Sunday Morning Music

T ShirtThree hours worth of tracks that you might want to hear should you be listening to tunes on a lazy Sunday morning. Pretend like it is then, and enjoy the aahhh-ha experiences. I have seminal works by Van Morrison, Steve Earle, The Moody Blues, Leo Kottke, and Taj Mahal. Some possibly newer experience for you in the form of Velvett Fogg, Westfauster, The Twilight Singers, and Sackville. Nucleus and Stoneground are my choices from the way back machine. Lots of opportunities to chill out with the music. And, no commercial interruption! Hah. The G Man
