“Food shared with love satisfies the palate, brings connection to one another and delivers joy to the heart."


Looking for ways to enjoy more love, romance, joy, happiness and connection. Then check out my radio show Romancing the Table: a celebration of life, love and food on voicemamerica, the largest talk radio network.
This week, back by popular demand of my listeners, is an Encore presentation of my interview with the talented Karen Sharpe Kramer — Golden Globe-winning actress (The High and The Mighty and even I Dream of Jeannie!). I met Karen and her daugher Katharine when I interviewed them on the red carpet during the Los Angeles Greek Film Festival. You can watch video clips of my interview with Karen and other celebrities and listen to our radio interview Thursday at 4 pm Pacific at my website http://www.moderndaygoddess.com/ Just click through the Romancing the Table banner on the center of the homepage where you can also hear the reply of this show and other past shows. Ah, this is the beauty of the internet which allows you to watch and listen whenever you want to.

Karen is also the wife of of the late Stanley Kramer, who directed the Hollywood classic, Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner, with the amazing cast of Sidney Poitier, Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn, for which Katharine won an oscar for her performance. In addition to Karen’s producing work, she is also in charge of the Stanley Kramer Library and is currently working on a box set of his classics for an upcoming release which will include Guess Who is Coming to Dinner.

Listen in to this entertaining radio episode as two goddesses, discuss the love story behind Guess Who is Coming To Dinner, the romance of food, their joy of cooking for those you love, how Karen met Stanley and the first romantic dinner Karen created that won Stanley’s heart. Stanley and Karen were happily married for 35 years and I loved talking with Karen about what we both believe, which is creating delicious meals with a romantic decor is a wonderful way to keep romance alive. Preparing a meal with love is also a wonderful way to connect with those you love around the table.
