Advice & love letters we savor, letters we take literally to the table. . . from Pablo Neruda (a foodie) to Sandra Gilbert (a foodie), Emily Dickinson (a foodie) to Thomas Jefferson (a foodie), and many more. Music by Bob Hope, Mick Jagger, Trini Lopez, and Adele.
“Maybe it is the topic of food, because, to be truthful, don’t we love to think and read and hear (and write, I confess) about food? And maybe it is the idea that “you can’t go wrong here,” as I insist in my directions to making the dish. We cannot hear that enough. Because we feel we can go wrong every which way, early, late, often. So it seems that we need solace, to know that someone thinks the world of us. We need a fork in warm lemon pie, and a letter. This show is for you, then, O my cherished Character. Hear on.”
