You know that friend whose taste in music always makes your ears perk up? That's my friend Austin Powers (no relation to the international man of mystery). He's always playing the right thing at the right time, to the point that I've asked him to curate the music at numerous dinner parties.
"Music only adds to the sensory experience of eating," says Austin. "So it's something I always think of when there's food around."
So, naturally, Austin was the right person to go to for help creating a Thanksgiving playlist that caters to you, the host. From the minute you wander into the kitchen, this playlist will be there, walking you through your next few hours of stirring, stuffing, dicing, and slicing.
