The words on the menus and in the cookbooks I have from around the world have helped me conquer at least ‘parts’ of foreign languages.</p><p>I have a good knowledge of French, Italian and even some Japanese, if you allow that food is the central most important aspect of understanding a people’s tongue. My vocabulary was broadened by at least seven new words in Little Havana just the other day at a place blandly&nbsp;named, “Viva Mexico.”</p><p> Sat, 14 Dec 2013 13:00:00 +0000 Norman Van Aken 25027 at http://blog.wlrn.org A Word On Food: Taco Lingo Pop Artist Icon Peter Max http://blog.wlrn.org/post/pop-artist-icon-peter-max <p></p> Fri, 13 Dec 2013 18:00:00 +0000 Ed Bell & Paul Leary 25025 at http://blog.wlrn.org Pop Artist Icon Peter Max Hanukkah: From A Simple Occasion To Something Grand http://blog.wlrn.org/post/hanukkah-simple-occasion-something-grand <p></p> Wed, 27 Nov 2013 18:00:00 +0000 Bonnie Berman, Joseph Cooper & Paul Leary 24266 at http://blog.wlrn.org Hanukkah: From A Simple Occasion To Something Grand The Sixty-Year Search for the Missing Men of World War II http://blog.wlrn.org/post/sixty-year-search-missing-men-world-war-ii <p></p> Mon, 18 Nov 2013 18:00:00 +0000 Joseph Cooper, Bonnie Berman & Paul Leary 23857 at http://blog.wlrn.org The Sixty-Year Search for the Missing Men of World War II What Would Brian Boitano Make? http://blog.wlrn.org/post/what-would-brian-boitano-make <p></p> Thu, 31 Oct 2013 17:30:00 +0000 Joseph Cooper, Bonnie Berman, Linda Gassenheimer & Paul Leary 22965 at http://blog.wlrn.org What Would Brian Boitano Make?
