Table Talk goes to the movies

A blog about everything from cooking food to farming it.

Let’s pause for a second to think about food and the media. Or, for now, just food movies.

Off the top of my head I get Food, Inc., Ratatouille, Supersize Me, Chocolat, Big Night, Tampopo, Babette’s Feast.

Full text of Gov. Douglas' announcement that he will not seek reelection

Governor Jim Douglas announced Aug. 21 in Montpelier that he will not seek a fifth term in office.

I want to thank all of you for coming this morning.

I especially want to thank the members of my Administration for being here, as well as
my staff.

Since January 1973, after I was first elected to the Vermont House, I’ve been making the
trip over the Appalachian Gap from my home in Middlebury to serve the people in
Montpelier.

Snapshots: Jim and Jennifer Vyhnak and the Vermont Ukulele Society

Posted on August 28, 2009 | Blog Category:
By Chelsey Pletts



BRISTOL — After a day of luaus and roving through Hawaii’s scenic vistas, Jim and Jennifer Vyhnak ducked into the first place they saw with air conditioning: Scotty’s Music shop in Kalaheo, Hawaii. Not only did the shop have air conditioning, but hanging just beyond the door were walls of peculiar-looking instruments. The shop owner immediately plucked one of the “miniature guitars” off the wall and handed it to the couple.

“Almost every tourist gets a ukulele,” she told Jim. “But few ever actually play it.”

By Angelo Lynn



Gov. Douglas’ announcement that he will not run again for governor catches the state’s political gurus off-guard. Nearly everyone thought he would run for a fifth term and, most likely, win.

Table Talk: Not-so-fried green tomatoes

A weekly blog about everything from farming food to cooking it.

With tomato and potato crops being hit right and left by late blight, the usual abundance of these late summer days has taken a hit. Even though the end of summer has brought some drier weather (knock on wood), the disease is still affecting tomato and potato plants in the area.

Snaphots: John Lee

Posted on August 23, 2009 |
By Chelsey Pletts



John Lee fought many battles, braving hand-to-hand combat with steely sabers and charging horses — the kinds of battles fought more than a hundred years ago.

Lee doesn’t know why he became a Civil War reenactor in 1996, only that it “was just something that was inside [him], like anything else.” And though he has spent the past three years away from reenacting to become a certified nurse, Lee stormed the battlefield for about eight years as a part of the First Vermont Cavalry Company K.

Table Talk: Simple Italian Cooking

A weekly blog about everything from farming food to cooking it.

“In Italy, if you have bad food, it is not a good day,” said Carla Guglielmino.

Guglielmino is the Italian culture consultant and director of the Italian childrens’ school at the Middlebury College summer language schools, which wrapped up last week. To her, there are just a few rules of good Italian cooking.

“The oil must be a very good oil,” she explained, “and the tomatoes must be fresh. And you have to understand that pasta must be cooked al dente.”
