Curd Quips: Celebrating American Cheese Month

- Interrupting this local election season with unity before rhetoric is; American Cheese Month. Yes, there is something the vast majority of us can agree on. October, a thirty-one day celebration of not just delicious and diverse cheeses, but the farmers, cheesemakers, retailers, cheesemongers, and chefs who bring them to your table. Vote against that? I think not – that would be un-American.

Curd Quips: Confessions of a cheese liberal and bark eater

Courtesy photo. This creamy cheese has a festive frock. Edible? Yes, this Fleur Verte wouldn’t be the same if you separated the two tastes. Outside coating is made with herbs like tarragon.
- It’s been said that “We eat first with our eyes.” If true, cheese works well on any plate. Consider not only the variety of shapes and colors in cheese, but - the rinds. Rinds, being the exterior of the cheese, pate being the center, that consist of a myriad of types. Be they rinds covered with herbs, ash, colorfully waxed, orange, brown or bright white, there is the one question that daunts just about everybody, “can I eat the rind?”

Real People Real Stories: After the interview with Dr. Susan Werner

- One of the best parts of being a community television producer is getting to experience the different types of people and personalities that make up our community. We may only be with a person for an hour but because of the focused nature of an interview we really get a very good look into a person's life. This is especially true after the cameras are turned off and they add context and more background to what they shared in the interview.

Curtain Calls: “Texts and Beheadings” - Elizabeth 101

Photo by Teresa Wood. Four Elizabeths (l -r) Monique Barbee, Cristina Spina, Ayeje Feamster, and Juliana Francis-Kelly) star in Compagnia de’ Colombari’s “Texts and Beheadings/ElizabethR” at the Folger Theatre through Oct. 4.
- Nothing says “college drama class exercise” like actors lined up delivering alternating words in a single speech. If that were my only exception to Karin Coonrod’s world premiere contribution to the Women’s Voices Theatre Festival as it appears at Folger, I would happily recommend it for a closer look. Unfortunately, hackneyed devices and overly clever riffs are the vehicle for – I’m guessing here – a study of the life and character of Elizabeth I.
