Blogroll & Recommended Websites:
A Key In the Door
Food & travel blog by my father-in-law, Herbert Bailey Livesey. Although it hasn’t been updated since 2010, I’m keeping the link here for posterity’s sake. Bailey’s an amazing writer.
More than Food
A great food blog by my friend Katherine Stetson.
Old Sturbridge Village
My favorite place anywhere!
More than just a Deli, and a wonderful source for imported foods from all over.
Craigie on Main
One of my favorite restaurants. If you ever see fried smelts on the menu, order it!
Eastern Bakers Supply
They’re only open M-F from 8 – 4:30, but you’ll find affordable and good-quality kitchen equipment. I got my Dexter-Russell chef’s knife here many years ago and it’s still going strong!
I play bass in the Boston-area rock band Root Nine. Check us out!
