Author to debut new cookbook at Fest for Beatles Fans

Lanea Stagg, author of the Recipe Records cookbook collection, is set to debut her latest in the series, the Rolling Stones-themed Let's Spend the Bite Together, at The Fest for Beatles Fans in Chicago this weekend, August 11-13, 2017.

The book features such fresh and creative recipes as "She's a Rainbow Salad," "Tumbling Rice," "I Wanna Be Your Flan," and "Jumpin' Jack Mash."

The original Recipe Records book was created by Stagg with her best friend and co-author, Maggie McHugh. After the unexpected death of McHugh, Stagg continued with their dream of a rock 'n' roll cookbook series. She later published Recipe Records: The 60's Edition and Recipe Records: A Culinary Tribute to The Beatles.

Rolling Scones brings a creative change to the Recipe Records series, as Stagg collaborated with her daughter Abby Ritterling (20), and McHugh's niece, Annie Jones (22), to both continue Maggie's legacy and to bring a fresh perspective to the cookbook.

The ties between the Stones and the Beatles run deep, as though they were both breakout acts from England in the '60s – often pitted against one another by the press – they were in many instances friends with a sense of healthy creative competition. The Lennon-McCartney song, "I Wanna Be Your Man," was even recorded by both bands.

Following the Fest for Beatles Fans, Stagg will have the book available at the Beatles at the Ridge Festival in Walnut Ridge, AR September 15-16, and it will also be for sale on her website.

Lanea Stagg currently resides in Southern Indiana where she and her husband have raised their eight children. The author gives programs to civic and other groups for each of her books. In her spare time she also conducts cooking classes for children. You can read her blog at and listen to her radio shows at Blog Talk Radio.
