..Lucky indeed is the cook with the gift of tongues. No matter from which source – beef, calf, lamb or pork – smaller tongues are usually preferable. To carve tongue, cut through at the bump parallel to the base. If the tongue is to be served hot, drain, plunge it into cold water and skin and trim it by removing the roots, small bones and gristle.  It is attractive served in Aspic.

MACBETH

This was the last honest-to-god play I ever directed.  A production of Shakespeare's Scottish play from 2006 featuring lots of puppets, ventriloquism, aerial dance, a violinist, and a microwave oven. Raphi Soifer played Macbeth, Krista Fatka his lady, and Gabrielle Wolodarski made all the incredible puppets and props.
