Apple Rose Tart — Fun with food


Apple Rose Tart

Apple Rose and Plum Tart

Apple Rose and Plum Tart

Lately I have been experimenting with the apple rose tart idea.  This version’s “crust” has walnuts and dates, sweetened with a little bit of maple syrup.  A fruit compote was spread over the crust, then plums and apples layered on top.

Today’s version is gluten-free and low in fat.  Instead of fruit compote, I’ve also pureed non-fat yogurt and over-ripe bananas  — this yields a very sweet creamy filling with little to no added sugar.

Recipes for apple rose tart are varied and one can find more than a few variations online.  There are quite a number of ‘how to’ YouTube videos available.  Many demonstrate techniques that are overly complicated.  I’m still playing with the recipe streamlining the technique.  This will be in my new cookbook.

The Tempest


The Tempest, Oregon Shakespeare Festival

I really liked the Tempest.  Like many Oregon Shakespeare Festival’s patrons, having seen the play a number of times, I was not sure how well I would like this version.  After seeing the Tempest, I liked it much more than I thought I would, and I’m glad OSF is doing it.

The staging and production was inventive and expressive without getting in the way of the storytelling.  The Tempest has a strong cast and it was well directed.

It will please many people; and interestingly enough it will satisfy both ‘camps’.  Those who insist Shakespeare plays must be done ‘traditionally’ [read: in “men in tights” ala Sir Laurence Olivier] and those who like a modern spare production.  The setting is on a magical island and on that island many strange and mystifying things happen and logically  those stranded on it for years have lost their ‘traditional’ Elizabethan garb. But the newly arrived shipwrecked characters are in fancy noblemen clothes.

But I think most will very much admire the way the entire production is pulled together. The beautiful buto dancers who silently move through the story, making things happen, assisting Ariel fly, etc. The love scenes are charming, and the comedy is not over-the-top silly.

The Tempest is in the Bowmer, and will run throughout the season.

PFX, the Pink Floyd Experience at Medford March 26


Craterian Theater at the Collier Center presents PFX, the Pink Floyd Experience

Pink Floyd Experience

Pink Floyd Experience

The aptly named Pink Floyd Experience is no ordinary concert. These stellar musicians recreate for the theater the sights and sounds of one of the most influential and experimental bands in rock history. With moving lights, giant HD projection, and full quadraphonic sound to reflect the innovation of the original band, PFX will most assuredly prove that pigs fly. The only thing that should keep you from this sensational stage production is “A Momentary Lapse of Reason.”
