My Thanksgiving Playlist

I love Thanksgiving, but as a cook, what I love most is the pre-game part:  planning, stops at the farmers market, flower district, etc. and getting serious in the kitchen.  This all requires inspiration and seriously good tunes.  

Here's my annual Thanksgiving Cookin' playlist, updated for 2014.  Enjoy!
