Note on Tasty Touring Guest Bloggers

If you are a regular reader of my blog, you already know that I publish guest posts every once in a while — you may recall my brother Jeff’s ode to sandwiches, Tom being swept off his feet by Virginia’s The Red Hen, and Laura recalling her grandmother’s gift of gnocchi while preparing this unique dish for the first time ever.

Introducing Guest Blogger Laura Stromberg

I met Laura Stromberg a couple years ago when I was looking for a marketing co-chair for the Austin Jewish Book Fair. While we got to know each other while preparing for that event, our friendship has grown over the past few years.

More from Tom Benton on The Red Hen

Poor Tom. He’s so desperate for good food and company that he went back to The Red Hen again the next day. I couldn’t resist another TB post but am I the only one who thinks the photo of the chocolate appears disturbingly similar to that of the sausage. Are you sure that was dessert, Tom?
