The Julie & Julia Treatment For Francine Segan’s “Shakespeare’s Kitchen”


A blogger at Playing The Cook, “a PhD student specializing in Shakespeare and Renaissance literature in performance” and a “really bad cook”, writes:

For my birthday this year, my brother got me a cookbook - Shakespeare’s Kitchen: Renaissance Recipes for the Contemporary Cook, by Francine Segan. I’ve been trying to do more cooking recently, and hopefully progress a bit past the “throw together a stir-fry” phase that I’m currently in. In order to force myself to put in some time in the kitchen, I’ve decided to do the Julie & Julia thing, and attempt to make every single recipe in the book before the year is out.

We wish him the best of luck, and look forward to his updates. As he noted: “To successfully complete this project, I need to make an average of two recipes per week.”

Here’s a fun blog post documenting his attempt at Renaissance Rice Balls.

If you’d like to try something as fun, but less ambitious, consider joining one of Francine Segan’s World of Tasting talks at 92nd Street. Programs include rich histories and delicious tastings. See all upcoming World of Tasting events

Remembering Our Colleague Steve Siegel

92nd Street Y’s longtime archivist and librarian Steve Siegel passed away on Saturday. Steve had been at 92Y since 1979. He was the quintessential researcher’s friend, always willing and able to dig up dates and details on all things 92Y-related and beyond. Steve was always a welcoming presence in 92Y’s library; several collections of the library’s books – including Judaica, art, dance, poetry and children’s books – are now housed within those specialty areas in the 92Y building. Steve’s dedication to archival material lives on in the Virtual Poetry Center and in the wealth of material now available on our website. 

We offer our condolences to his family and friends, remember his generosity and love of history, and bid a fond farewell to our colleague.
