Michelle Doll was a graphic designer when she decided at the age of 30 to change careers and enrolled at the French Culinary Institute (now the International Culinary Center). For several years, she was a renowned cake designer in New York through her company Michelle Doll Makes; however, her skills extend far beyond cake baking and her true passion is educating the home chef. She now plies her skills as a chef, food writer and culinary teacher, and is the author of Essential Tools, Tips & Techniques for the Home Cook. We’re back once again at Dangerbird Records’ studio in Silver Lake, Los Angeles. This go-round we meet up with singer-songwriter, Matt Costa. Matt discusses his 15-year career, and gives us a live in-studio performance from his new LP, Santa Rosa Fangs--his first full-length album in five years. The record tells the tale of a young woman named Sharon and her two brothers Richie and Tony, and their coming of age in California. It’s a sometimes autobiographical, sometimes fictional journey of Matt’s own life in his native Golden State.
