    Larger than life (literally and metaphorically), American culinary icon James Beard was a complex, entertaining, beloved and frustrating friend and mentor to many. Openly gay even though his primary audience was middle-America housewives, Beard always kept his phone number listed and famously took calls from anyone who needed a little cooking advice. I Love to Eat invites you to meet “the face and belly of American gastronomy” in this solo play that imagines a late night in Beard’s home. Learn More
