Welcoming The New Year With Food And Music

Are you still looking for special recipes or music to enhance your New Year’s Eve party? A couple of years ago we asked a couple of our favorite experts for their thoughts.

Here & Now’s pop culture critic Renee Graham gave us a dance mix, including selections from Tom Browne, Rick James and Ella Fitzgerald.

And as Here & Now resident chef Kathy Gunst said, when you’re dancing, you don’t want to be weighed down with fussy food. She gave us recipes for lobster and ginger-lemongrass cakes, potato soup that can be served in shot glasses, a rich chocolate tart, as well as a New Year’s Day brunch salad.

This segment originally aired June 19, 2012.
