When youâ€™re in the dark woods, and the way is lost, and a lion, leopard, and she-wolf are snarling, blocking your way, you (evolved radio show listener) might think of Danteâ€™s Rx, the Roman epic poet Virgil, or Rumiâ€™s peoples who come running with stretchers of grace, to take you through hell and out of it, or, the kitchen? Thatâ€™s what Iâ€™m thinking too. What you have at hand may be just what the Dr. (B) ordered, and thatâ€™s the ingredients for banana bread. Itâ€™s October, the days are dark and darker, and we have more and more need of all things yellow, red, and orange, so hereâ€™s a show with your own Poetry Slow Down host, plating recipes. So come on in, my cherished peoples, grab a plaid blanket, and weâ€™ll talk about crisis du jour with soup de jour, chef solutions, the poetry way. Hear what and whoâ€™s being eaten, whoâ€™s not eating, all the dish, delish, weâ€™ll dish it out.
Sunday, Noon-1 pm, PST, radiomonterey.com
