John William Godward, Neo-Classical Color and Scented Blueberry Pie

I was introduced to the New York Academy of Medicine a few weeks ago. It's housed in an impressive Byzantine-ish building on 5th Avenue full of spacious rooms, a beautiful auditorium and a magnificent library full of some of history's greatest cookbooks. Cookbooks in a medical library?

Herculaneum Found and Apicius’ Partridge in Berry Wine Sauce
John Martin’s Destruction of Pompeii, 1822  It was August 79AD in a resort town called Herculaneum sitting on the left side of the Italian boot’s ankle (about 143 miles south of Rome –– that’s about a week’s journey by horse). Bacchus with Agathodaemon and ...
The town had been created in the shadow of the ancient volcano Vesuvius; a volcano that had been dormant for 800 years –– so long that the inhabitants of surrounding towns no longer considered it dangerous. Rather, it was thought of as generously benign since it was covered in lush and fertile ...

The Great Depression and Shrimp Macaroni Salad with Boiled Dressing
I have just finished a grueling schedule on a TV show that was based on a 1937 crime involving a model, a sculptor and an upholsterer.  All their lives had been upended by the Depression. To prepare for it, I did a bucket of research and learned a good deal...

This was inspired by my last TV project based in 1937.  It was an interesting time that really made me appreciate how good we have it today, AND, that boiled dressing is really good!

I returned an item to Purch Marketplace and was really pleasantly surprised at the personal service and care they provided. They took the product back, issued a refund and left me wanting to order from them regularly. You can tell more about a company in the way they deal with problems than you can from just a purchase. These guys are great (shout out to Tanya at customer service).
