Naturally Dyed Eggs In Corinna's Kitchen

Sarah's egg

    

  Corinna Selby was born and raised in Munich, Germany, and has traveled extensively in the US, Europe and South East Asia. She has been baking professionally for six years, and is a graduate of the Cambridge Culinary Institute. Her pastry-baking classes, both at Corinna’s Kitchen in Ghent, NY and at Different Drummer’s Kitchen in Albany, NY, fill quickly, as her friendly teaching style and pragmatic, easy-to-follow recipes make the classes fun and packed with culinary adventure.

  Corinna’s family comes from the Bavarian countryside and she grew up making traditional European holiday decorations throughout the year. Part of this tradition is the creation of beautiful Easter eggs - dyed with organic food-safe ingredients and creating patterns that use shapes and designs that are found in nature.

  Kander and Ebb’s classic Tony Award winning musical drama, Cabaret, is currently in previews in New York City - directed by Sam Mendes and co-directed and choreographed by Rob Marshall, the production stars Alan Cumming as the Emcee of the Kit-Kat Klub. Those of you who are particularly Broadway savvy may think I’m introducing a segment from 1998 - when those three men worked together with Roundabout on the same show - which ran until 2004.

But no - we’ve not figured out how to go back in time to see the critically acclaimed and much lauded production again - Roundabout is re-mounting the show at Studio 54. The official opening date is April 24th … 2014.

In addition to Mr. Cumming donning his suspenders and blood-red lipstick again, this revival stars Michelle Williams as Sally Bowles, Bill Heck as Cliff, Linda Emond as Frau Schnieder, and Danny Burstein as Herr Shultz.

Sue Aikens From National Geographic Channel's "Life Below Zero"

    The National Geographic Channel’s documentary series, Life Below Zero, follows 7 people as they struggle to survive the treacherous and remote lives they’ve made for themselves near or above the arctic circle in the Alaskan bush.

Some of them are lone wolves; others have their families beside them. They fish, forage, and freeze in a wild-world that doesn’t care if they get through the winter or not.  The premiere of Season 2 of Life Below Zero will air this Thursday, April 17th at 9pm. 

Sue Aikens lives by herself at Kavik River Camp, a place so remote the address is given in latitude and longitude, located a few miles from the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. The ground is frozen year round so there is no way to dig a well yet - Sue has internet and telephone service - even if it does often drop in extreme weather.
