Spend an hour listening to Tony Simotes, Artistic Director of Shakespeare and Company share his childhood memories of growing up Greek-American in Joliet, Il, son of a Greek grocer, with his Dad's desire to be all American and shed his Greek roots and his Mom's efforts to keep the Greek traditions.
Look forward to a future blog post for Mrs. Simotes' recipes for Avgolemono Soup and Angolemono Sauce, Rice Pudding and more. And I will try and recreate the soup Tony described on my blog this weekend.

Spend an hour listening to chef Jeremy Stanton share how his early memories and access to farm-fresh ingredients began his love affair with food and sustainable agriculture. And how each of his experiences has lead to his next venture, a local butcher shop called The Meat Market - opening in Great Barrington, MA this summer. For more information on Jeremy and The Meat Market go to www.themeatmarketgb.com.
We'll await a recipe or two from Jeremy to share!!

Each week I co-host a radio show called Radio2Women with Serene Mastrianni. And Serene decided that she wanted to "interview" me. We had a great time discussing how easy cooking really is. The interview has inspired my next blog post....Alway prepared - must have spices, must have pantry and fridge/freezer items....so stay tuned!!
In the meantime, listen to the interview here and get ready for Heirloom Meals Radio beginning in February!
