Just as it says, it's part one of the party to launch Raven Garland's new website:
Starts off with Bill Godfrey telling me all about life and poetry. Not to be missed.
Then there are the noises of people eating food stuffs that all begin with the letter "P." Peppermint Patties, Pineapples, you get the idea.
And then Raven speaks and a whole slew of poets reads. This will not all be done in one episode, so tune in at a later date (TBA) to hear the rest.
This week Writers' Voices will feature a fascinating conversation with author and child educational psychologist, Dr. Charlotte Reznick. Dr. Reznick is the author of "The Power of Your Child's Imagination: How to Transform Stress and Anxiety into Joy and Success," an L.A. Times bestselling book, published by Perigee/Penguin. She will be sharing insight into her imagery techniques that she has developed that allows children to harness the power of their imagination to help them deal with many of childhood problems. Her techniques have helped children boost self-esteem and confidence, overcome fears, deal with insomnia and bedwetting, ease headaches and stomache aches, and soothe anger, frustration and loss. Dr. Reznick has been helping children, adolescents, and parents for over 20 years. She has been featured on national television and published in newspapers and professional journals.
Auguste Escoffier passed away in 1935, but his influence on food lives on. His Le Guide Culinaire is still used as a textbook in many culinary schools where students learn the techniques and many of the recipes he popularized when he revamped French cooking in the early part of the 20th century.
Indian Hills' culinary program is based on learning French technique and two of the students, Ben Froah and Ben Millard, are going to pass on some of Escoffier's knowledge in our studio kitchen. They'll walk us through cutting up a whole chicken (organic), and then teach us how to pan fry it, and make it look great, even though it is just fried chicken.
The usual "come on by and taste for yourself," isn't flowing easily from the computer keys (believe it or not, I am a reluctant food sharer), but "COME ON BY."
