A slice off a cut cake is never missed … !




There is an Opera Garden article on almond trees, prompted by an aria from Weber’s Euryanthe. And elsewhere in the Opera Kitchen there is an article about the mysterious piece of pork which takes just twenty minutes to cook in Gustav Holst’s short but sexy opera The Wandering Scholar. This Opera Kitchen article is also based on Holst’s The Wandering Scholar and examines the other culinary delicacy which the provocative Alison has kept a secret from her farmer husband Louis to provide as a treat (or rather, the second half of a treat) for the randy priest, Father Philippe.
