It was a busy show, and it started with a caller waiting for us. It was Billy Wright who has replicated Manuel’s Tamales.just from his memory and experience in kitchens. He sells them on the corner of Robert E Lee and Canal Boulevard in Lakeview. Find him on Facebook as Billy Wright’s Manuel’s-Style Tamales.
Our blueprint for the show, the Almanac, was full of interesting things today. We talked about tea on this 243rd anniversary of the Boston Tea Party, about genteel life and dining in the 18th century on Jane Austen’s birthday. We talked about things covered in chocolate on this National Covered in Chocolate Day.
And then it was over. Quick show.
