The mystery celebrity I mentioned in my last entry is none other than Frida Kahlo. Ms. Kahlo reportedly died in 1954, but that didn’t stop her from coming to Ann Arbor to enjoy FestiFools this Sunday.
Many thanks to Lisa Gottlieb and Jeff McCabe for taking Frida and me on a whirlwind tour of Kerrytown!
Our first stop was the People’s Food Co-op
, where we watched Frida re-enact her cameo in the 2nd Austin Powers movie.

. After FestiFools on Sunday, everyone is welcome to join us at the Aut Bar for FestiFeast! And FestiFools volunteers even get a special, thank-you discount — as if you needed another reason to volunteer at the event
Remarkably, Frida was able to maintain her completely deadpan expression as she regaled us with one hilarious story after another.
Frida Kahlo visited eve
talked nachos (inspired or otherwise) with sous chef Max Sussman, who will be the guest-chef at Selma Café
next Friday. Max and his brother Eli’s recently published cookbook, Freshman in the Kitchen
, should be required reading for those about to leave home for the first time; it promises to transform the culinarily clueless into creative chefs.
Frida Kahlo bid us adieu with an emotionally raw interpretation of Beethoven’s Piano Sonata no. 23 in F minor (opus 57) at the Kerrytown Concert House
