Whatever you celebrate—Hannukah, Christmas, Kwanzaa or the Solstice —there's something for you on the Splendid Table this week. Italian food legend Marcella Hazan, author of the recently published Marcella Cucina, and her husband, Victor, share a recipe for lobster pasta sauce and talk Italian Christmas traditions with Lynne, who will reminisce a bit herself. British conductor Christopher Hogwood takes us back to the Charles Dickens era with a recipe for baked goose, but only Jane and Michael Stern would take us to Christmas in Las Vegas! John Martin Taylor of deep-fried turkey fame is back but he's thinking oysters and champagne this time, and writer David Nussbaum tells of discovering a new link to Hanukkah traditions. As always, the phone lines will be open for your calls.
