Swirly, Sensual, Summery Soft Serve

Summer Fun

I confess, I am an addict. Driving up from the city,  my tastebuds begin to tremble with anticipation as I get onto Route 22 and approach the Red Rooster in Brewster. Happily, for my vacillating shape, it is a seasonal addiction. The desire begins to emerge just as the peonies begin to bloom around Memorial Day, just about the time the swirly white cones start appearing on flags everywhere.

Real Strawberries Are Sublime In Their Short Season

Food

I wonder what it would be like not to know what real strawberries taste like.  If you were alive before global produce, you might remember there was once a time when fruits and vegetables were not overblown like bodybuilders on steroids and when they were only eaten in season. In my neighborhood an old Italian man in a beat up farm truck with an operatic voice cruised the streets calling  into an old fashioned megaphone a long drawn out, “straw--berries, straw--berries for sale”  every day of that short luscious season in early June.

Sowing Seeds, Old Fashioned But Still In Style

Garden

A hundred years ago, garden magazines were filled with illustrations of striped sweet peas, poppies in colors that looked like old silks, nigella in a blue so exquisite that the great English gardener Gertrude Jekyll secretly sprinkled them in her client’s gardens.

Jump Starting Corn Season

Food

Our long-awaited, much anticipated fresh corn season is around the corner. Even though it’s not the farm stand, farmer’s market ready treat, markets are already stocking very fresh produce from nearby states. We can jump the season a bit and whet our taste buds for the local corn with this delicious salad.

Chinese Peppercorn Unbanned

Food

The first Chinese food I can recall eating was with my best friend, Nancy. On paydays (I was selling Lincoln Mercury automobiles  bruising my hips as I ran into the fins of these handsome, late 1950s vehicles  on the showroom floor) we would trot over to Broadway  near Times Square to a scruffy little restaurant and sit next to the steamed-up plate glass window, eating glossy Cantonese dishes like shrimp and greens in a mild cornstarch sauce with sticky rice and hot tea.
Fabulous.

New Old-Time Radio On WHDD and WAPJ

Radio: Shaw Israel Izikson

One night in a living room office at Trinity Church seven radio actors and actresses gather around a table looking at their scripts.
The actors are looking to see if any adjustments are needed for the episode they are practicing called “Space Sentries.”
“Why did you call this character ‘Alex’?” Jandi Hanna asks Timothy Quirk.
“Because I didn’t know if it was going to be a male or female,” Quirk says. After Quirk tweaks the script a bit, the cast starts practicing the episode.
