Susan Feniger’s passion for food and genuine love for the authentic flavors of street and home cooking have propelled her successful career as chef, restaurateur, cookbook author and media darling. She is co-chef/owner of the Border Grill restaurants and Border Grill Truck, owner of Susan Feniger’s STREET and veteran of Food Network’s Too Hot Tamales.
If Saint-Saëns’ Fantasie is a delicious aperitif, Martinu’s 1927 La Revue de Cuisine is a delightful fresh salade: pop, Charleston, shimmy and ragtime-cum-tango come together in this witty farce as rival Twirling stick threatens the union of Pot and Lid. And the entrée is Ravel’s 1903 masterpiece. Although it was rejected by the Prix de Rome and the Conservatoire de Paris, Debussy wrote to Ravel, “In the name of the gods of music and in my own, do not touch a single note you have written in your Quartet.”
