"Kombucha flavored soda alternatives pose threat to Coca-Cola and Pepsi."  Well, I think this story is only in an early phase of development, but if you sometimes have a craving for a bubbly beverage that goes well with popcorn, look no further than Shaktea Kombucha.  For the most part, I have my soda (or pop depending on where you grew up) attachment licked, but I have to admit that last year I went on a Mexican Coke binge for several weeks.  A number of pounds later (that exact number will remain confidential), and well-caffeinated, I broke off the relationship. Now, with Shaktea in my life I have no need to rekindle it.

Patience: The Art of Peaceful LivingAllan LokosIn our fast paced, ever changing world, patience is often our most needed, but least cultivated virtue.

Drawing on Lokos many years as a Buddhist practitioner and teacher, as well as interviews from a wide range of people who have had their patience dramatically tested, this book provides a realistic approach to becoming calmer and happier with one's self, in relationships, at work, and with the world.

In Pity the Billionaire, Frank, the great chronicler of American paradox, [uses] firsthand reporting, a deep knowledge of the American Right, and a wicked sense of humor, [to deliver a] full diagnosis of the cultural malady that has transformed collapse into profit, reconceived the Founding Fathers as heroes from an Ayn Rand novel, and enlisted the powerless in a fan club for the prosperous.

Anna CooganCome ashore, love, come ashore
Do not chase the bitter sea
I will be waiting at our doorstep
Come ashore, love, come ashore
~ Come Ashore, Love by Anna Coogan

Anna Coogan's new album, The Wasted Ocean, is a fresh collection of olde time flavored sea songs, but more the type to row a small wooden boat, wearing a hand-knit woolen sweater misted with salt spray, than the type that stomp around in an eye-patch on a peg leg, sloshing mugs of beer.  The songs are deeply atmospheric, layered, and evocative, all while allowing Anna's rich, sweet and honest voice to hold center stage.

Rachel PlattenKeep your eyes set on the horizon
on the line where blue meets blue
I bet that silver lining, well I know it'd find you soon
~ 1,000 Ships, Rachel Platten

Based on her album, Be Here, New York singer-songwriter Rachel Platten is the type of person you'd want to adopt for a best friend or big sister.  Her songs are upbeat and positive without denying that heartache and hard times exist.  Rachel is just confident that those situations are temporary and with the right attitude you can turn it around.  A little of her sweet voice, bubbly smile and piano-driven pop may just be the perfect pick-me-up.

Classically trained pianist Debbie Miller booked her first singer-songwriter gig in New York City before she even had enough material to fill the slot.  Once the songs started coming they didn't stop, as she is currently releasing her second album! Now based out of Seattle, Debbie is winning the hearts of the coffee-shop crowds with her quirky, playful, and raw songs, straight from the heart.

HRH Prince Charles"It is, I feel, our apparent reluctance to recognize the interrelated nature of the problems and therefore the solutions, that lies at the heart of our predicament and certainly on our ability to determine the future of food."
HRH Prince Charles, The Prince of Wales

The highlight address at "The Future of Food" conference on May 4, 2011 at Georgetown University was given by HRH the Prince of Wales.  Among food activists Prince Charles is a well-known organic farmer who has advocated sustainable practices for many years.  His address, which challenged the belief that industrial agriculture and large agribusiness are necessary to feed the world's ever-growing population, was published last week by Rodale Press.  On the Future of FoodThe Prince's Speech:  On the Future of Food is a rallying call to not only advocates of sustainability, but also presents a vision that recognizes "the wider and important social and economic parameters-how we can feed a global population approaching 9 billion people and still safeguard public health, keep jobs, and protect our environment."

Bob MartinOur guest, Robert P. Martin, Senior Policy Advisor-Center for a Livable Future, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, was one of the "Future of Food" event organizers.  He has been a key player in getting The Prince's Speech published so its ideas can be shared with the general public.  Please join us on Great Taste for a discussion of the critical food issues that effect every single one of us now and future generations.  You can view some excerpts from the Georgetown conference here.

Beth Howard serves up some pieces of her life in the KRUU studio Wednesday night.   She'll read from and discuss her new book, Making Piece-A Memoir of Love, Loss and Pie.

Beth's writing style is very direct, sometimes raw, and emotionally grabbing.  It's a riveting read of her intimate journey springing from a short, life-changing, telephone call. The call was from a medical examiner who told her, "Your husband is deceased."  This stark sentence  delivered in a "serious, official, no emotion, detached" manner leads her on a rollercoaster ride of self-discovery.

Funny FoodWe're going to take a light-hearted approach to food on this week's show, but there is a somewhat hidden agenda.  Authors Bill and Claire Wurtzel know breakfast foods can be tasty and healthy.  No need for junk.  For 50 years, Bill has created breakfasts for his wife to enjoy out of almost anything you can put on a plate-eggs, oatmeal, carrots, toast, fruits and more.  Playing with your food takes on a new meaning browsing through Funny Food.  It's a whimsical ode to creativity on a plate, and is a guide to making fun meals that a kid of any age can enjoy.

In the second half of the show, Molly Aronica of The Daily Meal, joins us for her monthly look at the food scene.  We'll explore how the massive amount of information on The Daily Meal site is coMolly Aronicampiled because it's quite an undertaking.  Also, she'll give us an inside look at the greenest restaurants in America so we are culinarily aware in anticipation of the annual Earth Day celebration set for April 22.

GREAT TASTE is live in the studio, Wednesday, April 11.  Come on by or catch the stream at www.kruufm.com. [Click on "Read more" below to continue.]

This is an interview Mike Ragogna did with Paul O'Neill, founder of Trans-Siberian Orchestra in 2012.

The massively successful producer/writer/creative force passed away April 5, 2017 after battling a chronic illness. He was 61.

According to Huffpo, O’Neill got his start in the music industry as an assistant to manager David Krebs at Leber-Krebs, a management company that worked with bands like Aerosmith, AC/DC and Def Leppard, Variety notes.

In the mid-1980s, he became close with the heavy-metal band Savatage, which hailed from Tarpon Springs, Florida. O’Neill produced their “Hall of the Mountain King” album in 1987 and worked with them through 2001.

O’Neill, along with Savatage’s guitarist Jon Olivia, wrote “Christmas Eve/Sarajevo 12/14,” a mashup of the Christmas songs “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen” and “Carol of the Bells.” The track was meant to be released on Savatage’s 1995 album, “Dead Winter Dead.”

Amour Jams and MarmaladesDon't you just love serendipitous moments?  I'm sitting at the counter facing the kitchen at Pago in Salt Lake City, and getting ready to enjoy a meal fixed by Phelix Gardner, one of my favorite chefs.  A couple walks in and is seated next to me.  Since I'm such a shy guy, I start talking to them immediately.  If they have in mind a romantic night out, my take is they should have asked to sit at a table for two.  Anyway, we make some small talk.  Phelix comes over with my first plate-two pieces of grilled bread, two cheeses, one jam and one marmalade.  "The jam and marmalade were made by the couple sitting next to you," he says with a grin.

Now, our conversation really begins in earnest, and it gains traction after I taste their creations.  John and Casee Francis are artists.  Interestingly, not just in the kitchen, but as landscape gardeners, and John is a four-time National Old-Time Fiddle Contest Champion.

In "Autobiography of a Recovering SkinHead: The Frank Meeink Story as Told to Jody M. Roy, Ph.D.", Frank tells his raw story, from his angry childhood that found an outlet in the Neo-Nazi movement through his time in prison, encountering cons of all backgrounds and race, that first caused him to question his anger and rascism. The book is a journey into the dark depths of the rascist American underground.

Since turning his life around, Frank has become a noted speaker, author and founder of "Harmony Through Hockey".Currently living in the Des Moines area, Frank's life is now dedicated to tolerance, diversity and mutual understanding.

It is with the utmost concern that I begin this blog post with the above admonition.  Over the years, I have issued this same counsel many times, and always with a valid reason.  After all, every Great Taste listener is important to me. 

For over four months in San Francisco, our own Heli Claire Witherspoon has been learning the ancient art of turning flour into delicacies that captivate the eyes and taste bCakesuds.  We'll explore with Heli and her friend, Alden Hockett, the rigors of the baker's craft, what critical pieces of information they've picked up, and get some tips on baking at home.

59:57 minutes (54.89 MB) Stereo 44kHz 128Kbps (CBR)

BBQ flameThe simplistic way to look at grilling is its no more than throwing a slab of meat on a grill that's powered by propane with a little help from heat-radiating artificial briquettes.  That's not the way we cook on Great Taste, though.  Of course, you know that. 

It's the week when Indian Hills Culinary culinary students corral Great Taste, and we are looking forward to a crasBBQ mealh course on outdoor grilling from Mr. Curtis "Q" Goudy.  If you are cruising by the KRUU studio Wednesday before our 7 pm CDT show, give him a shout out.  Curt will have a real grill fired up and smoking right on the driveway.  Beer can chicken and a little asparagus are going to provide the sustenance for an hour filled with suggestions and techniques to enhance your Memorial Day picnic and carry you right through the summer.

Cookbook CafeFacebook and its IPO have been the center of social media attention over the past few weeks, but if you are a food lover BakeSpace.com is the spot to chat and exchange recipes and information with people who hang out in the kitchen.  Babette Pepaj, the founder of BakeSpace joins us in the first half hour of the show.  Babette's latest venture is Cookbook Cafe, an app for the iPad featuring "the first DIY cookbook builder, marketplace & reader."  The app is built as a storefront where home cooks, non-profit organizations, food companies, and others can publish and market their cookbooks. Anyone who’s ever tried to get a cookbook published knows how difficult the process is. Big name chefs get most of the attention from publishers, so  Cookbook Café's mission is to democratize the food publishing industry. Many of the cookbooks available through the app are free, though some authors charge a minimal amount for the download.

Sherri Brooks VintonFarmer's friend, Sherri Brooks Vinton, will pay a return visit to Great Taste.  She has some food writing tips to pass along in our second half hour, along with her special passion for local foods, canning, fermenting, freezing, and drying.  She's finishing up two new books, Put ‘em Up!

Senator Hogg Urges Iowans To Create Jobs & Provide Clean Energy By Building Solar Projects 

CEDAR RAPIDS – State Senator Rob Hogg (D-Cedar Rapids) announced today that $1.5 million in state solar energy tax credits are now available for homes and businesses because of the passage of Senate File 2342.

With these state tax credits, now is the time for Iowa businesses and Iowa homeowners to move forward with solar energy projects,” Hogg said.  “Solar energy works in Iowa and helps meet our energy needs.  These tax credits will help create jobs for the installation of hundreds of solar projects across our state each year.”

The bill, which passed the Iowa Senate 45-1 and the Iowa House 82-14 and was signed by Governor Branstad on Friday, provides state tax credits for solar electric, solar hot water, and geothermal energy systems.  Iowans are now eligible for solar tax credits up to $3,000 per project for homeowners and $15,000 for businesses.

Fresh greens and berriesWednesdays and Saturdays are my two favorite parts of the week May-October because the outdoor Fairfield Farmer's Market is a fixture at Howard Park.  Going to the market is a multi-dimensional experience.  First, if you don't have a garden of your own, it gives you an intimate opportunity to harmonize with the changing products of the growing season.  Each table is laden with what nature is providing a particular grower at that specific moment.  Then, there is the chance to forge a link between what you eventually will serve to family and friends with the person responsible for growing it.  That human bond adds another dimension to the overall food experience.  Your food becomes traceable-how it is grown, where, by whom, all within the reach of a conversation.

Arrietty posterAlice Cooper, sing it: School's out for the summer! That means Filmosopher junior reviewer Shane Miller will be in the studio. Just in time, too as we saw the latest animated treasure from Hayao Miyazaki's Studio Ghibli (Spirited Away): The Secret World of Arrietty. These are films Shane and I have grown to love, and Arrietty is no exception. Folks are noting Pixar is releasing it's first film with a female hero: Brave (6/22). Miyazaki and Ghibli have been doing this since Kiki's Delivery Service in 1989. Arrietty continues that evolved perspective: "Studio Ghibli's best film since Miyazaki's eco-fable masterpiece Spirited Away. Its story is impeccably paced, its look beautifully imagined, and its drama perfectly built-up. Bristles, underfoot, with some delightful feminism and environmentalism."

We'll talk about that, the latest blockbuster releases and the wonderfully filmosophical Certified Copy, starring a radiant Juliette Binoche. We're the Filmosophers, "where we give our filmosophy of the movies and have filmosophical discussions". Fridays at 12:30 PM Central, rebroadcast Sundays at noon.

This weekend we'll talk about new films in theaters, including Brave, the 13thKumare poster release from Pixar; Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, a "mashup of history lesson and monster flick" and the (possibly!) filmosophical Seeking a Friend for the End of the World. Sometimes we're not sure what to say about a film if we haven't seen it. You'll usually get a feel from critic's consensus. But as you're aware (and awareness is the key), the spiritual or filmosophically inclined movie fan's experience of films can be quite different from mainstream perceptions. This may be true about Seeking a Friend... and especially so for the documentary- Kumaré. "The true story about a false prophet. Kumaré follows American filmmaker Vikram Gandhi as he transforms himself into a Indian guru, hoping to prove the absurdity of blind faith. Instead, he finds himself forging profound connections with people from all walks of life."

We'll alert you to small gems that may get lost amongst the "blockbusters", including Wes Anderson's Moonrise Kingdom; Safety Not Guaranteed and Beasts Of The Southern Wild, which sounds fascinating!

Kat ParsonsSomething's wrong, I can tell
And what you don't say
Is a silent farewell
~ Talk to Me, Kat Parsons

Born in Vienna, based in Los Angeles and with tour credits across the US and Europe, South Korea, Thailand, Malaysia, Korea, Brunei, Australia, Singapore, Borneo, Vietnam, and Japan, one listen to Kat Parsons' upbeat and intelligent pop, and it's easy to see why she has had such international success.

Her breathy, sweet vocals and catchy hooks draw in even the most casual listener, and the introspective lyrics hold discerning ears longer than the latest disposable, manufactured hit.

We first learned just how enjoyable The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is from good friend and guest host Big Al Green, who saw it in Iowa City- reporting there were a fair amount of others there from Fairfield. The feedback was enthusiastic. Since then we've received several requests for it to be shown locally. Theatre Manager Marilou Parsons heard us, and forwarded on the requests.

We're delighted to tell you The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel opens in Fairfield, Friday, 6/29. "A dream cast led by Judi Dench, Tom Wilkinson, Maggie Smith, and Bill Nighy lights up John (Shakespeare in Love) Madden's film- a story of late-life awakenings and self-discovery in India. Its ace in the hole is its pungent depiction of Jaipur's teeming streets, which gives a blinding splash of color. Impossible to resist."   

We'll tell you about the new releases and what we've seen on video, including Jeff, Who Lives At Home a film by the Duplass brothers, which junior reviewer Shane Miller described as "a spiritual comedy". We're the Filmosophers, with Chris Busch and Bruce Miller, "where we give our filmosophy of the movies and have filmosophical discussions." Fridays at 12:30 PM Central, and again Sundays at 9:00 AM.

Raw Sauerkraut

Why Listen to Radio When You Can Taste It!!

GREAT TASTE with host Steve Boss is going to have a good old food bash and everyone is invited.  Succotash, grits two different ways, fresh-made, raw sauerkraut and kimchi, are all on the menu.  Now that lineup may sound a bit strange, but we're in the midst of corn and preserving season so we took the liberty of combining those elements into one grandiose show.

Local chef Avi Pogel along with sustainable food expert Dora Pollak will show you how to prepare a luscious succotash, a dish popular in New England, the South, and many other states.  Also, they will demonstrate how to make raw sauerkraut, and are bringing along some homemade kraut and kimchi (traditional Korean-style pickles) for everyone to taste.  Both foods are rich in digestive enzymes, Vitamin C, and friendly lactic-acid bacteria.  If you have never eaten raw sauerkraut, it's taste is not even a distant cousin to the canned or German-style variety.  Your mouth will wake up with a real flavor burst.

This weekend Ted Burghoff will join us for a special edition of The Filmosophers. Blade Runner poster Ted is a film fan who shares our enthusiasm for Director Ridley Scott. We'll talk about Scott's career, focusing on three films: Blade Runner; Kingdom Of Heaven: Director's Cut and Prometheus. Ted owns the Four Disc Special Edition box set of Kingdom Of Heaven: Director's Cut. The Director's Cut extended version "has received a distinctly more positive reception from film critics than the theatrical release, with some reviewers suggesting that it is the most substantial Director's Cut of all time  and a title to equal any of Scott's other works." Also, The Shift, with Wayne Dyer is the free film showing Friday at the FF Library. "The powerful shift from the ego constructs we are taught early in life by parents and society—which promote an emphasis on achievement and accumulation—are shown in contrast to a life of meaning, focused on serving and giving back." A true filmosophical experience.

The conversation with Texas Ted will be fun. We're the Filmosophers, with Chris Busch, Bruce Miller and summertime junior sidekick Shane Miller, "where we give our filmosophy of the movies and have filmosophical discussions." Fridays, 12:30 PM Central, again Sundays at 9:00 AM. Live stream @kruufm.com

These sizzling summer Lentil Saladdays don't lend themselves to spending long periods of time over a hot stove.  A simple, light, tasty, and nutritious dish is the right formula to shoot for.  We have four combos that hit the right notes, but you can judge for yourself at Hy-Vee on Wednesday night from 7:00-8:00 pm.

Great Taste co-host Kathy DuBois loves salads.  She enjoys the challenge of making a salad the centerpiece of a meal.  Using a grain as the salad's focus and adding lots of flavors with citrus, parsley, olive oil, and other super fresh ingredients, she can satisfy your hunger without adding any unwanted calories.  I am a big fan of the two salads she's going to make on the show, one featuring french lentils and the other quinoa.

Searching For Sugar Man poster

The buzz on the "wide" movie releases this weekend: The Watch ("disappointment") and Step Up Revolution ("chaotic formlessness") are poor. That's balanced with intriguing indie and documentary films the Filmosophers enjoy alerting you to. Start with Ruby Sparks, from the Little Miss Sunshine folks- "The great romantic gem of the summer, a diamond in the rough that bends genres and trips up expectations." There's the fascinating documentary Searching For Sugar Man, which "tells the true story of the greatest '70s U.S. rock icon who never was, how he was rediscovered in a far off land and finally became the legend he always deserved to be. "The strangeness of truth compared to the limits of the human imagination gets a crystalline demonstration in Searching for Sugar Man. "A gloriously inspirational comeback tale."

Texas Ted Burghoff joins Bruce and Shane in the studio this weekend. We sawMoonrise Kingdom photo Total Recall together and our experience was quite different than many others. We'll cover the three new wide releases, including The Bourne Legacy, "the next chapter of the hugely popular espionage franchise", with Fairfield's own Neil Cunningham; The Campaign, a "crude brand of political satire" and Hope Springs the best reviewed of the three, "led by a pair of mesmerizing performances from Meryl Streep and Tommy Lee Jones." It's a gentle, yet poignant story of reinvigorating a 31 year marriage. An Oscar Best Picture The Artist shows Friday evening (8/10) at the FF Library, free!

You may have heard us, or read our Filmosopher's blog extolling Wes Anderson's (Royal Tenenbaums, Rushmore) joyful film Moonrise Kingdom (image). We're excited to tell you it starts Friday at the Co-Ed Theatre. This continues their recent history of booking splendid indie films (Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, etc.).

Around The Writer's Block

 

One of the most common problems authors face is the dreaded "writer's block". Rosanne Bane, our guest, has been helping writers with this problem for decades as a writing and creativity teacher. She has written a new book entitled, "Around the Writer's Block: Using Brain Science to Solve Writer's Resistance"(Tarcher/Penguin). Her book deals with the problems writers face in a new and innovative way. Using the latest breakthroughs in brain science to help understand where this writing resistance comes from - a fight-or-flight response hard-wired into our brain, which can make us desperate to avoid the sources of our anxieties, her book lays out an effective plan to solve that resistance.

Don't miss this insightful and useful discussion!

We have had numerous shows on raw foods throughout the years, but this one is going to take a little different angle.  Rather than focusing on how to change your entire lifestyle and go raw, or undertaking weeks of cleansing programs, I asked our guests to present easy options for improving our health and eating habits.  The challenge to them was to show us in one hour ways we can enjoy benefits from integrating more raw foods into our diet.   
Isha Kinger
So this week's show is all about fast food, but let's make it raw.  Isha Kinger and Emily Shaw have come up with a few easy principles that we can apply to our daily meal plans.  They'll demonstrate how simple it is to make an ultra delicious and nutritious smoothie,  come up with a main couEmily Shawrse that has all the elements of its Italian roots, but is totally raw, and a dessert to satisfy anyone's sweet tooth.   Plus, they'll discuss other easy to make menu ideas, and some of the reasons why a slight change in diet could prove beneficial.

Isha  is a raw food chef and graduate from the Living Lights Culinary Arts Institute in California.  Also, she earned a certificate in Raw Food Nutrition from The Heath Awareness Centre in India.  Emily has a B. A. in Health and Human Physiology from the University of Iowa and is an aspiring gourmet, raw, vegan chef.

Fairfield's talented Neil Brooks Cunningham (The Taking of Pelham One Two Neil Brooks Cunningham picThree; The Retreat; You Don't Know Jack) is in the #1 movie in America- The Bourne Legacy. Neil plays Dr. Dan Hillcott who, according to Rachel Weisz's Dr. Marta Shearing, provided a "viral map", enabling the entire success of "The Program", the American government's covert operation that's created the next level of super-agents, as played by Jeremy Renner. Turns out Neil's been closer to sensitive government operations than one might know. He'll join us live in the KRUU studio this weekend. We'll talk about The Bourne Legacy, his perspective of the story, the world of film and more.

Also hear about this week's new releases, including The Expendables 2, Sylvester Stallone's "roundup of action stars who celebrate and send up their former glories"; the highly rated animated ParaNorman, an "endearingly sweet and spooky-ookie ode to the living, the dead, and the in-between" and Disney's not so well reviewed The Odd Life Of Timothy Green.

We'll tell you about what else we've seen, including Finnish writer director Aki Kaurismäki's gently endearing Le Havre. We're the Filmosophers, "where we give our filmosophy of the movies and have filmosophical discussions", with guest co-host Ted Burghoff, Bruce and son Shane Miller, who'll be making his last appearance on the show for a while, as school starts again next week.

Homemade JamsGet ready for music and food on this week's GREAT TASTE live from Hy-Vee.  The opening number is "Canning some Jam" with Indian Hills culinary students, Curt Goudey and Sara Valentine.  Curt leads off with apple butter, followed by Sara on the freshest local fruit.

The harmony they create segues into our next two performances conducted by Rob Ferguson.  In a dramatic solo, Rob, the genius behind the melodious Cruzers sandwich will serve some of those super food laden delightsJim Kerwin for us to sample.  For his second number, he has a new pizza crust made with high-powered grains, and with the help of a quartet from the audience we're going to top them with plenty of fresh vitamin-rich delights.  Rob's making his second  journey to Fairfield in hopes of building a Cruzers' manufacturing plant here.

To keep the mood just right, perhaps a little pizzicato-style music?  World class bass fiddler Jim Kerwin, who has played with mandolin king David Grisman for 28 years, will be weaving his musical magic, along with classical guitarist Tom Allen. Jim has played with the likes of Grateful Dead's Jerry Garcia, Yo-Yo Ma, Vassar Clements, Mark O'Connor, Edgar Meyer, and also on six Grammy-nominated records. But I'll bet he's never played second fiddle to fresh-made jams and pizzas on what we humbly refer to as the most delicious 60 minutes on the radio. Jim performs in concert at Cafe Paradiso Thursday night at 8pm.

Just a preview of whats to come:

#1 Arian Foster - A season removed from Bounty Gate and head coaches who nearly came to blows over an aggressive handshake, the top fantasy player this year is non other than a mild mannered philosopher. Don't let the thick framed glasses and verbose interviews fool you, Arian is an absolute beast when it comes to fantasy points. The Texans lost a few key defenders this off-season so their offense will be heavily relied upon to win games. There is just one ball to spread around a ton of talent in Houston but with almost half the fantasy season against the Jags, Colts, and Titans, I have no doubt Foster's opulent ways will continue...

Hoppin' John's Lowcountry CookingThe 20th anniversary edition of John Martin Taylor's highly acclaimed first book, Hoppin' John's Lowcountry Cooking: Recipes and Ruminations from Charleston and the Carolina Coastal Plain, was published this month by the University of North Carolina Press.  When the book first hit stores twenty years ago it was called "a stunner" by the New York Times.  It brought a revival of interest in the culinary traditions of of the South by providing not only 250 updated recipes for dishes including shrimp and grits, she-crab soup, Chicken Country Captain, pimento cheese, cheese pigs (straws), and benne crackers, but making the history of these and other dishes come alive.

For me and my family the book struck a close personal note.  My wife spent most of her very early years in Charleston where her mother's family lived.  She continued to visit her great-grandmother, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins every summer, and after we were married we carried on that annual pilgrimage.  Once the kids arrived on the scene we became one of those normal families packing up the car for the summer vacation for a couple of weeks on the beach traveling from St. Louis and later Fairfield to Charleston.

This week hear about the new releases, including the propulsive Premium Rush, starring one of today's hottest (and busiest) young actors- Joseph Gordon-Levitt. We'll start our Fall Movie preview and tell you about a sweet, emotional gem from Japan, titled Quill: The Life Of a Guide Dog. If you like dogs this is a must-see. This review from Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, posted on "Spirituality & Practice": "Dogs are loyal, curious, and courageous. But even more impressive is that dogs have abilities that we seem to have lost. Three of these abilities are direction-finding, telepathy, and precognition. These gifts help explain why dogs have been used as guides for blind people and others with disabilities. In the ruins in Pompeii, the Italian town destroyed by a volcano, pictures were found of dogs leading humans."

Friday evening, 9/7 the Fairfield Library's free movie will be the filmosophical 1998 film What Dreams May Come, a "visually stunning metaphysical tale of life after death" starring Robin Williams, Annabella Sciorra & Cuba Gooding, Jr. It's an excellent chance to see this visual treat on a big screen again.

Ermo and Nazzarena BissiniOur friend, Ermo Bissini, passed away several weeks ago.  I have been thinking about how to pay tribute to him, and finally hit upon a solution that represents who Ermo was and shares his passion.  Ermo was a Modenese.  He lived, breathed, and lauded his beloved city of Modena, Italy in the region of Emilia-Romagna.  Along with his lovely wife, Nazzarena, he represented Modena with his dignified and refined manner.  He honored the city by creating typical food products featuring the trebbiano and lambrusco grapes.  Ermo was a supporter of organic agriculture, and was our first maestro; introducing us to the wonders of his most beloved condiment-aceto balsamico di Modena.  Most of all, he was kind and giving, and it will be a pleasure for me to share some memories of him with you.
We'll celebrate his life by creating a wondrous pallet of flavors with three types of balsamic vinegar; using it to awaken a trio of foods-a salad, strawberries, and vanilla ice cream.  We'll toast Ermo with Lambrusco, the typical wine of Emilia-Romagna, plus enjoy a crispy Frico made with parmigiano reggiano.  One other surprise dish will round out our trip to this region famous for its culinary delicacies.

For some of us, great cinema is worth investing time and resources into. When I saw The Bijou Cinema logothe essential documentary The Queen Of Versailles was showing at the University Of Iowa's Bijou Cinema in Iowa City, I made the commitment to take the drive and see it. I'm happy I did. For this Filmosopher, the rise and fall story of the "classic" American dream is a Divine insight into the folly of living on the surface of life. Also, my experience at the Bijou was a joy: comfortable seating, adequate size screen and a $2 bag of tasty popcorn. When I look at the quality of films they're showing, I know I'll be returning.

We'll talk more about that, The Queen Of Versailles, new releases, more fall movie preview and what we've seen. We're The Filmosophers, with Chris Busch and Bruce Miller, "where we give our filmosophy of the movies and have filmosophical discussions."

Pooh with honey"'When you wake up in the morning, Pooh,' said Piglet at last, 'what's the first thing you say to yourself?'
"'What's for breakfast?' said Pooh.  'What do you say, Piglet?'
"'I say, I wonder what's going to happen exciting today?' said Piglet.
Pooh nodded thoughtfully.  "It's the same thing," he said.

-A. A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh (1926)


Pooh's conclusion encapsulates everything I feel about food.  The thrill of the plate resonates throughout each of us, whether we truly embrace it as a sensual experience worth indulging in, or use food simply as a means of gas for the engine. 

Either way, it is the fuel that drives every part of the human machine.  Why not cherish the experience?  I think being in touch with what you eat and how it effects your emotions is an important tool for enjoying life.

Fairfield filmmakers Donald Revolinski and Cully Thomas will join us in the studio to talkCo-Ed Theatre photo about their new film The Vindication of Ronald Clay, described as a "smart, stylistic adventure about the interwoven fables of five patrons to a coffee shop at the center of the universe". This was shot on location in Fairfield Iowa, which indeed is the center of the universe.

Here we see yet another filmmaking expression of the Creative flow, so abundant in "America's most unusual town" (-Oprah). Couple this creativity with our community's strong interest in movies and the closing of the Co-Ed Theatre could be viewed as bewildering. How could this happen here? Well, the owners went bankrupt, the movie industry is in flux, with the shift from film to digital, involving expensive new projectors. Plus, a decrease in box office business, enhanced by dazzling home theaters (see the Mark & Livia Cole Experience). However, we know the spiritual awakening in Fairfield and the Universe "transcends" surface level appearances. That means we can and will have a nice movie theater. I don't know the business details, but I can suggest how it may actually happen: desire, intention and allowing. This call to film fans: Let the intention begin!

Swan pastriesI am almost drooling with anticipation regarding Wednesday's GREAT TASTE.  It's our monthly show when the Indian Hills culinary students show off their skills so Curt Goudy and his crew will take the stage live at Hy-Vee from the Club Room/Kitchen Lab.  They are going to work with pâte à choux.  If you aren't familiar with the term, think profiteroles, éclairs, gougères, and much more.  Butter, water, flour, eggs equals ecstatic moments.
