Cold war

Cold War (Poland)
(2019, R, 88 minutes)

Directed by Pawel Pawlikowski. Starring: Joanna Kulig, Tomasz Kot, Borys Szyc, Agata Kulesza, Cedric Kahn, Jeanne Balibar.

A sweeping, delirious romance begins in the Polish countryside, where Wiktor, a musician on a state-sponsored mission to collect folk songs, discovers a captivating young singer named Zula. Over the next fifteen years, their turbulent relationship will play out in stolen moments between two worlds: the jazz clubs of decadent, bohemian Paris, to which he defects, and the corrupt, repressive Communist Bloc, where she remains, universes bridged by their passion for music and for each other.

Geeks & Gastronomy Club is a combo book/cooking club/class.  We pick a topic & read a book that we think matches; make a recipe that also matches; Saleena will teach a recipe that matches and together we discuss our books & eat our food and discover the variety of interpretations for the subject as well as maybe finding some new books to read.

Since it's Feb, we're going with Love as the topic.  So read a book about love (of any kind), and bring a dish that you love, and please remember to also bring the recipe so we know the ingredients & can make copies.  Saleena will do a live demo/class of a recipe.   Remember, you can interpret this in any way you like; love for a parent, a job, a food, a pet, a significant other, yourself, or the planet (really, love of or for anything).  Registration will be suggested & will go up in Jan.  Come, eat, discuss & help us pick the next topic!  What do YOU geek out for?
