Ecstasy and Me: My Life as a Woman by Hedy LamarrThis book is not only atrociously written, it is also riddled with fiction. Miss Lamarr, whose autobiography this book purports to be, always vehemently denied the validity of the books content. In fact, she sued the publisher and ghostwriters for libel. Lamarr had unfortunately trusted that the ghostwriters, Leo Guild and Cy Rice, would do an admirable job with her story and signed off on the completed manuscript without having actually read it. Instead of any normal biography, what she received was a garbled mixture of bad grammar, incoherent narrative, and thinly-veiled male sexual fantasies dreamed up by the ghostwriters in order to boost sales. It is so poorly written that it is almost impossible to read- and actually doing so is a complete waste of time. Fortunately, there have recently been two actual biographies published that do the actress more justice-both published posthumously. But one cant help but wonder what might have come out of an actual collaboration with the woman herself and what stories have passed forever into obscurity.

Vedge, a vegan restaurant located in a historic building in Philadelphia, is the most recent joint venture by the husband-and-wife duo of executive chef Richard Landau and pastry chef Kate Jacoby. At home, Richard mostly does the cooking, though he and Kate agree it's a team effort when company's coming. In time for Valentine's Day, we chatted with the couple about putting romance on the menu. We got hooked on a recent trip to Madeira and the Azores. And after working together for more than a decade, we're really good at divvying things up and trusting each other.

Overall, the bar exudes a cool and contemporary vibe, distinguishing V Street from the warm and sophisticated aesthetic at Vedge. Like its big sister, though, V Street serves finely tuned plant-based small plates. The curated menu of all-vegan takes on global street-food dishes begs to be paired with the inventive cocktails and interesting wines and beers.
Francis Lam visited Jacoby and Landau in the kitchen of their restaurant to learn more about their cooking techniques and what three dishes they consider essential to the vegetarian or veggie-loving home cook. Francis Lam: We're here today to talk about our Key 3 segment; we go around to cooks who we love and admire, and we ask them a very basic question: What are the three things you think everyone should know how to make? Kate Jacoby: So hard to do! But, I'm going with custard. You could use any plant milk — oat milk, almond milk, anything.
