What does Sean Brock bring back from his travels?
I’m a condiment guy. Any time I can find something jarred or pickled, or a jar of something that’s regional, that’s what I like collecting. There’s always something like that. I just unpacked from a trip to Richmond, and there’s a bag of cornmeal and a specific variety of corn. Anytime I travel somewhere — whether it’s Chicago, San Francisco or anywhere in the world — I’m always looking for a record shop. I collect a lot of vinyl, and I just love finding tiny little strange record stores.
