Mačka Cora vodi kulinarski program na Pustinjskom festivalu u dolini Coachella

Mačka Cora vodi kulinarski program na Pustinjskom festivalu u dolini Coachella

Festival pustinje, inauguralni festival muzike i umjetnosti u dolini Coachella (ne, ne to Muzički festival Coachella), slavi likovnu umjetnost, uključujući operu, klasičnu muziku, ples, pozorište i kulinarsku umjetnost, sa gostima poput Renée Fleming i muzičkog direktora Pariške opere Phillippea Jordana. Iron Chef Cat Cora dodana je kao kulinarska direktorica festivala, a gozbu će pripremiti za večernju svečanost 18. marta. Daily Meal je intervjuirao kuharicu Coru o svom predstojećem meniju na Festivalu pustinje, kao i njenim dobrotvornim prilozima putem kuhara za čovječanstvo.

Koju vrstu hrane planirate poslužiti na festivalu?

Osećam pustinju, pa zaista želim da budem inspirisan latinskim jezikom za jedan od događaja, a drugim mediteranskim. Kao i muzičari, osjećate hranu u duši, pa ja idem sa onim što osjećam.

Planirate li kreiranje menija u koordinaciji sa muzikom za veče?

Hranu usklađujem prema srcu i duši. Senzualnost hrane je organska, i ako je osjećate autentično, muzika će biti lijepo povezana, i obrnuto.

Za vas, kako se likovna umjetnost odnosi prema kuhanju?

Umjetnost je kuhanje, muzika i stvaranje. Sve je to povezano jer dolazi iz naše duše i našeg umjetničkog stvaralaštva. Ima li išta dublje i organskije od toga? Ništa. To su sva čula u jednoj simfoniji.

Šta mi možete reći o kuharima za humanost?

Osnovao sam CFH kada je tsunami pogodio Aziju prije 10 godina. Od tada je CFH radio na tome da bude dio edukacije o prehrani u Americi, na iskorjenjivanju gladi u svim dijelovima svijeta i na pružanju hitne pomoći gladi u krizama širom svijeta. Blisko smo surađivali s Michelle Obama u njenim programima Let’s Move i Chefs Move to Schools. I naši partneri, poput Međunarodnog američkog Crvenog križa, Svjetskog programa za hranu i drugih, dali su nam priliku da uzvratimo.

Hoće li na festivalu biti prikupljanje sredstava za kuvare za čovječanstvo?

Nadamo se da ćemo moje dobrotvorno društvo prerasti u festival. Tome se jako nadam. Svi vi trebate nas vani da nas bodrite i podržavate u našim naporima da iskorijenimo glad i pothranjenost u svijetu.

Save the Date for Taste of WGBH (Oct 11-14, 2018)

It's almost that time of year again, time for The Taste of WGBH Food & Wine Festival. The proceeds from the festival go to support the public radio program. There are multiple events over the course of the four days - last year I wrote about the Food Fight event.

One of the best events to attend is the Chefs' Gala, which will take place on Thursday, October 11 inside the WGBH studios. The gala event showcases 21 of the top chefs around the city along with beer, wine, and cocktails.

Here are some of my favorite bites from last year's event:
Savory egg flan with sherry, maple, and ham from Puritan & Co. This was so good we got seconds.

Users can deploy it to see themselves in more detail as they are taking a snap, or to make it easier to include themselves in large groups pictures.

The head comprises an adjustable rubber clamp that the company claims can hold all sizes of tablets and smartphones securely.

‘The durable selfie stick is built strong, so your tablet or phone will be safe and secured in the air when you are taking a selfie,’ the website says.

The head comprises an adjustable rubber clamp that the company selling it claims can hold all sizes of tablets and smartphones securely (pictured)

For $23 (£16), budding photographers get an attachment head for their tablet, a selfie stick and a remote control. As well as taking close-ups, users could make use of the stick to include impressive views or large groups of people in their shots (some examples are shown above)

On the end of a strap is a standard quarter-inch (0.5cm) mount into which the stick itself can be attached.

It extends up to 3ft (1m) to 'give your device the best photo taking coverage.'

However, the tablet may appear heavier when it's held away from the body and could be difficult to keep still, so not to take blurry photos.

The company says of its bundle: 'No matter where you may be, you are sure to get everyone and neighbouring surroundings in the picture'.

In order to help users hold the stick still, there's a Bluetooth remote control that comes with the bundle to make taking pictures slightly easier, without the need of setting timers.

It’s compatible with iPhone and Android handsets.

Customers can also buy the strap on its own for $10 (£7), but run the risk of using it with an insufficiently strengthened stick, which could end in an expensive accident.

SELFIE STICKS ARE BANNED AT COACHELLA FESTIVAL

Selfie sticks divide opinion - some people love them and others hate them.

This week organisers of two major US festivals have made clear what they think of selfie sticks.

The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival and Lollapalooza are the latest in a string of concert venues and historic landmarks to ban the use of the controversial tech gadgets on their grounds.

While the latter has named 'GoPro attachments like sticks, selfie sticks & monopods' on its list of prohibited items, Coachella has banned festivalgoers from bringing 'Selfie sticks/Narsisstics (sic)'.

Banned: The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival and Lollapalooza, in Illinois and California, are the latest in a string of concert venues and historic landmarks to ban selfie sticks on their grounds (file picture)

However, it remains unclear how organizers intend to identify and weed out 'narsisstics' at the gates of the festival, which begins in Indio, California on April 10 - more than three months before Lollapalooza.

And selfie sticks are not the only unusual items to be banned at the two festivals. Coachella also prohibits blankets, chairs, flags, hula hoops, marker pens, stuffed animals and umbrellas on its list .

The ban, first reported by Brooklyn Vegan , will prevent selfie sticks from obstructing festivalgoers' views of the stage - and could limit the illegal recording of performances, according to Rolling Stone .

Bizarre: And the gadgets are not the only unusual items to be banned at the two festivals. Coachella also prohibits blankets, chairs, flags, hula hoops, markers, stuffed animals and umbrellas on its list (left and right)

It will likely mean attendees will have to resort to the old-fashioned method of using their arms to take selfies.

Selfie sticks, which allow users to position their smartphone or camera beyond the normal range of their arm, have already been banned from an array of venues and historical sites across the world.

According to NME , London's O2 Arena and Wembley Arena have prohibited them, while CBC reports that France's Palace of Versailles and Rome's Colosseum also do not permit the use of the gadgets.

With an MA in Photography Bobbi was a freelance photographer and educator for most of her working life – commissioned by brands like Timex, Penguin Books, Audi and other household names.

Born and raised in the Tri-Cities area of Detroit, Michigan, Marylee 'Boo' McIntyre grew up gathering bushels of berries, apples, apricots and what ever other fruits were in season with her siblings to be used in the creations her grandmother and mother would bake from the day after Thanksgiving through the December holidays. Over the years, baking became a way to relieve stress and get grounded.

Like the roots of the honey mesquite and creosote, Robin Kobaly's desert roots go deep. Her immediate family moved to Morongo Valley when she was 2 years old. At six, Robin had an extraordinary experience with desert wildflowers - an experience she was hesitant to share, being part of a scientific community, fearing her work would not be taken seriously.

Carol 'Dusty' Seddon's first desert experience was in and around the Mojave near Apple Valley in the mid-90’s accompanying a group of friends from an Orange County college, who were coming out to perform archeological digs. Dusty immediately fell in love with the feel of the desert – the dry air, the quiet and so much different than what she’d know in the suburbs. On these digs they mostly found tools, stones used in cooking, and maybe bits of pottery.

Born in New Jersey and raised in New York's Hudson Valley, Cynthia Marie loves to drive cross-country - she's done it six times. On one of those trips, she found herself nearly out of gas and calling Roy's in Amboy, CA, asking them to keep the pumps open for just a bit longer so she could gas up and make it to Joshua Tree for the night. As is the desert way, the obliged.

Dawn Rowe's first experience with desert was driving to Las Vegas for a Marine Corps Ball. Alan, her late husband, needed something for his uniform and decided they would drive the back way to Vegas, passing the Marine Base in 29Palms where he would pick it up at the PX. Driving up the Morongo grade and then down into the valley, Dawn remembers her first thought was "Who lives out here?” And now she does – falling in love with a community where she's become a very involved and active citizen, all the way to her current position as San Bernardino Third District Supervisor.

Dawn talks about getting through the loss of her husband with the assistance of the Marine Corps. While the Corps itself assisted with the logistics of her new life, she never imagined her own experience as a volunteer shepherding young military wives through losses would apply to her.

Born in France, Marie Bobin's first experience with desert was a trip with friends to Death Valley. It was a last minute, 'let’s get out of LA for the weekend' kind of trip – in August. Marie says they drove a lot, got out of the car to snap a few photos, then jumped back into the air conditioned car.

With a background in cultural programming and consulting, Marie became involved with local non-profits Harrison House, Joshua Tree Retreat Center and Mil-Tree, of which she in now holds a board position. She also met Jenny Kane, Executive Director of Arts Connection, where the idea for applying for the National Endowment for the Arts Big Read Grant happened.

In part two of the 100 episode milestone celebration, I read the remaining excepts chosen from 'The Desert Was Home', by Elizabeth Crozer Campbell.

Tue, 06 Aug 2019 01:26:26 +0000

In this special celebration episode, I'm reading excerpts from 'The Desert Was Home', a book by an original Desert Lady, Elizabeth Crozer Campbell.

If you’re unfamiliar, Elizabeth, or Betts, as her husband called her, she was born in Beach Haven, NJ – so of course I felt an immediate kinship with her.

Elizabeth Warder Crozer, was born the youngest of four daughters, in 1893 and died in 1971. She was raised in Upland, Delaware County, Pennsylvania, the daughter of a wealthy family and her education through her post graduate studies were in private schools. She met Bill, an orphan from Los Angeles, at a west coast wedding, where they were both in the bridal party. As the story goes, it was love at first sight and they themselves married in 1920, even with the disapproval of Elizabeth's family.
