Books about food and gardens abound at IMBY HQ. In this episode of In My Backyard, Lisa Bralts gets a local bartender (and now fledgling gardener) named Flip Flop to read and review one of the newer arrivals, Amy Stewart's The Drunken Botanist. WEB-ONLY BONUS: Extra commentary provided by Flip Flop regarding the preparation of the cocktail that inspired the book. Just click "listen" over there on the left!
Every year, Lisa and her family trek down to her childhood home, Florida, to get some respite from February in Illinois. One of the things she missed most about her current home was the food. She tells us why in this installment of In My Backyard.
