The Inspiration

Every month or so, I partner with one of my favorite local sites, Brooklyn Based, to feature an exclusive song by a Brooklyn band. Then I create a recipe with—or inspired by—the featured artist. This month's song comes from The Loom.

I'm excited that we were able to time this post with Thanksgiving, because The Loom's music is perfect for sitting around a big table with friends, and so is this dish.

Check out the full post for more photos, stories, and links to The Loom's featured MP3.
