Take 5

  1. WHAT'S THE BEST BOOK YOU'VE READ THIS YEAR? Shakespeare's Kitchen by Francine Segan. This may be the first scholarly fun cookbook; it is about menus and recipes of Shakespeare's time.

  2. WHAT'S SPINNING ON YOUR CD PLAYER? Barber's Adagio for Strings, Opus 11. This adagio is generally regarded as the saddest music ever written, although I propose Dido's Lament from Dido and Aeneas by Purcell.
