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.

Join James Moore for a discussion wClaire Hoffmanith Claire Hoffman about her book GREETINGS FROM UTOPIA PARK: Surviving A Transcendent Childhood, her career and perspectives on life this Wednesday, May 18th at 1pm CT on KRUU-LP 100.1. [Rebro THU 7pm & Fri 3pm]

Claire works as a magazine writer living in Los Angeles, writing for national magazines, covering culture, religion, celebrity, business and whatever else seems interesting. She was formerly a staff reporter for the Los Angeles Times and a freelance reporter for the New York Times.

She has a masters degree in religion from the University of Chicago, and a masters degree in journalism from Columbia University. She serves on the board of her family foundation, the Goldhirsh Foundation, as well as the Columbia Journalism School. Claire is a native Iowan and has been meditating since she was three years old.

UTOPIA is a riveting, astonishingly honest, ultimately life-affirming journey through the heartlands of consciousness, spirituality and Fairfield. Claire's gifts as a writer and storyteller are abundant and manifest, her observations manage to be fierce, gentle, discerning, and loving at the same time.

For those of us who grew up inside the bubble diagram, so to speak, committed to the high ideals of creating 'heaven on earth' in the cornfields of Iowa, hopeful of floating into the sunset of the age of enlightenment, there will be uncomfortable moments. Claire's organic magical realism peels the onion all the way back to the unified field and then some. Some passages had me wincing in embarrassed recognition, others made me laugh or shake my head, mostly at myself, others feel proud or sometimes sad in unexpected ways.

Thursday: Metered Love

G ManMetered love, rhythm and news. Reasons and rhymes. You ever pull back, draw a line, frame a context, break a pattern? There is unbounded love, and then there is... what we have to work with on this edition of Centripetal Sounds. Example: Emerald Eyes by Fleetwood Mac. "Gettin' back to the way I feel, her honest word is my only real thing...she's still a mystery to me, the way she sails away slow, makes your day to day life-easy...". Or how about Chicago: "I don't want your money, that don't mean a thing, yeah...all I want is you, I wanna be your natural man...". 28 fine examples of apportioning what comes natural. 2-4 PM with a replay next Wednesday morning at 2 AM.

BBQ and ChefSteps on GREAT TASTE

As soon as the weather starts to warm up, I bet many of you think about breaking out the grill.  I certainly do.  

Legends of Texas BarbequeRobb Walsh has been writing about barbeque for decades.  His latest book is an updated version of Legends of Texas Barbecue Cook Book:  Recipes and Recollections from the Pitmasters.  The photos make every story he tells come alive, and, even more than the recipes, I became engrossed in the history and cultural facets of the book.  In the interview, he discusses some of the different ethnic groups who continue to play a role in the evolving landscape of Texas barbeque.  I bet there are a lot of Texas barbeque lovers who will be surprised when they hear what Robb has to say.
