Composer, wearer of fierce clothing, fast talker and immensely wonderful chef Nico Muhly made us lunch the other day. It was really good. His new album, Mothertongue, is about using your voice, which is a less fun thing to do with your mouth than eating. Especially when it's Nico Muhly who made the food for you using vegetables he bought on his Chinatown block, boxed white wine and Kedem brand garbanzo beans. He has horizon views, stories about the south and a CP30 sized air conditioner; what else could make for a better host?
