La Bella Lingua book cover shotpasta with zucchini, cherry tomatoes, rosemary & basilWhat a perfect combination-discussing the Italian language with noted author, Dianne Hales, and preparing Italian food in the studio.  Dianne's book, La Bella Lingua, published in 2009,  is a great read full of history about how the language developed, populated with insights into colorful characters like Petrarch, Julius Caesar, Boccaccio, St. Francis of Assisi, Lorenzo de Medici, and Brunelleschi and, the author's own  journey as she navigated the complexities of the language and culture. 

Since our show is Great Taste, we'll focus on the language as it relates to different styles of cooking, work our way through some typical food terminology found on Italian menus, and share a simple recipe for pasta with marinara sauce as it was made every Sunday by Kathy's Grandma Gulla.

Vegan Vegetarian Omnivore

One of my favorite cooks this week on Great Taste: Anna Thomas.

Anna Thomas started a cookbook revolution in 1973 when her now classic, The Vegetarian Epicure, was published.  Her newest book, Vegan Vegetarian Omnivore:  Dinner for Everyone at the Table, is a paradigm-shifting volume filled with over 200 recipes.  The book is about hospitality. "Start with the foods that everyone eats," she writes, "design a meal that works, then expand it, make it flexible..."  Personally, I think she may have hit on a real solution for world peace.

Don't forget GREAT TASTE is LIVE at Green Building Supply next week, Tuesday, May 3 with asparagus whisperer, Michael Havelka.  See you there at 7:00 pm for the show and free tasting of my favorite spring vegetable.

Singing these praises is more than mere enjoyment, it also produces changes in the chemistry of our bodies, rewiring our perceptions of suffering, creating a happier life and opening the way to manifest the higher self."

From local accounts of folks who've heard Daniel sing, his performance will be a joyful, spiritually transformational event.Bruce says, "I'm personally grateful to Coralee for inspiring Daniel to perform here in between his Chicago and Kansas City concerts.

- Planet Erstwild - 20160326 - Bob Hillman - Lost Soul

58:12 minutes (53.28 MB) Stereo 44kHz 128Kbps (CBR)

San Francisco singer/songwriter Bob Hillman is back with a new album after more than ten years away from the business.

He plays Cafe Paradiso Sat Mar 26 at 8pm with Jason Wallsmith of the Nadas.

After over a decade away from the stage and studio, Bob Hillman returns with the full-length album Lost Soul. The album’s title is ironic in the sense that, with his longtime musical mentor ex-Plimsoul Peter Case at the helm, the San Francisco-based singer/songwriter has found his way out of the creative wilderness. He taps back into literate, tuneful songwriting that defined earlier works like Playing God (1999), Welcome To My Century (2001), and If You Lived Here, You’d Be Home (2006). This time, however, he moves beyond the Americana-leaning folk-rock of his past to embrace a fresh, contemporary sonic landscape; the result is a less crafted, more visceral album.

Hillman and Case bring unique individual and collective histories into this project. The Plimsouls had a regional hit with “A Million Miles Away” in 1983, at a time when Hillman was learning guitar and starting to check out the Los Angeles music scene. In 1989, Hillman experienced an awakening when he saw Case perform a solo show at McCabe’s Guitar Shop in Santa Monica. “Peter played solo acoustic—the classic ‘folk’ construct—but with rock energy,” the singer says. “That was the kind of music I wanted to make.” Cut to the mid-90s, when Hillman—now living in New York—on a whim sent Case, who had just released his album Torn Again, his first batch of demos. Case saw potential and invited him to L.A. to play with him at the Ash Grove on the Santa Monica Pier.

Hillman subsequently embarked on a path to a series of breakthroughs, including two albums produced by Tommy West, who made a bunch of hits in the 70s with pop troubadour Jim Croce and others. He also started picking up higher-profile gigs, including opening for Suzanne Vega at the House of Blues in L.A. and The Fillmore in San Francisco.
