Fiction writer Thomas Fox Averill  talks about his novel Secrets of the Tsil Café.  A coming-of-age story that contains 26 recipes--all tried and true concoctions of the writer--this novel mixes a good story with fun New Mexican cuisine that also gives you an interesting look into the history of  food in the Americas. Averill also discusses the differences he finds in crafting short as opposed to long fiction.
