Ginna is out of town, so lifestyle editor Leslie Criss (8:21) joins Emma Kent and Derek Russell today to talk about this week’s food section.
That includes a recipe for sausage ragu. Meanwhile, this week’s Cook of the Week is Saltillo’s Pam Montgomery, who didn’t learn to cook until after she got married. Her recipes include cranberry sauce and chicken-and-dumplings.
M. Scott Morris (17:14) reviews “Battle of the Sexes,” which stars Emma Stone and Steve Carrell. The movie is about the epic tennis match between Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs. Scott said that the movie takes audiences behind-the-scenes and is a compelling story even for those who already know the outcome of the 1973 match.
Derek (27:24) talks about this weekend’s entertainment scene. That includes Tupelo Community Theatre’s performance of “The 39 Steps,” a spy story/ comedy being performed at TCT Off Broadway. Other weekend events include the Tupelo Caribbean Fest and The Secret Art Show at the Link Centre.
