10:30 AM Talk: The Strangest Cooking Methods in the World Culinary Historians of San Diego will present The Strangest Cooking Methods in the World, featuring Richard Foss via a Zoom webinar. Foss will explain how previous generations prepared their meals when fuel wasn’t available, and how they improvised when a source of free heat presented itself. People have cooked using heat from volcanoes, hot springs, automobile engines, laundry appliances, weapons and other ingenious methods. This is a light-hearted history of culinary innovation from prehistory to the present day. Richard Foss has been writing professionally since 1986, when he started reviewing restaurants for the Los Angeles Reader newspaper. Since then he has contributed to over thirty different publications, including the Encyclopedia of World Food Cultures and Oxford Companion to Sweets. He taught “500 Years of American Food” and “American Fermented” at Osher Institute/UCLA Extension, and is on the board of the Culinary Historians of Southern California.

6:30 PM Peter Sprague & Friends Play Antonio Carlos Jobim Livestream Peter Sprague, Allison Adams Tucker and a flock of local musical notables will play and sing songs by the late great Antonio Carlos Jobim, the grandfather of Brazilian Bossa Nova.

Peter says:

"Estrada Do Sol," road to the sun, is our path to the enlightened music of Antonio Carlos Jobim. Peter's dad had Jobim’s bossa nova on the turntable and as a kid, even in the trenches with rock music, Jobim’s music touched him deeply. There’s something magic about the rhythm of samba coupled with the harmonic wealth of jazz that seduces the ear and makes us live upgraded lives. Listen to "Corcovado" and tell him there isn’t divine beauty hovering in the air waves.
For this livestream we explore the full spectrum of Antonio’s vast wealth of songs including, "Agua De Beber," "Wave," "Waters of March," "Girl From Ipanema," "Desifinado," "One Note Samba," and the list goes way to space. I’ve even put together a mega medley that touches down to various gorgeous locales of Jobim - dom. Almost hilarious!

Admission/Cost: FREE (but tips greatly appreciated!)
