The Melting Potcast

Episode 52- Main Ingredient, A Little Seasoning, Mystery Meal

November 1, 2017

Here in the Disaster Kitchen, we try to bring you real food for thought. And our Main Ingredient story today certainly brings it.


Author Doc Coleman gives us a tale that strikes on not one, but TWO Stoke the Fire prompts...but it's still a Main Ingredient story. Here we have


Prompt #12- Write a story featuring some kind of mystic cheese.

Prompt #13- Where did the corn go?


"The Blessing of the Cheese"

Professor Crackle had determined that creamed corn is the best gift to bring a sufi in Istanbul, much to the puzzlement of his young companion. Miss Titania Bang is eager to see just what the sufi had in mind when he invited them all to be guests.


Special thanks to Chris Lester and Veronica Giguere for lending their voices as Professor Crackle and Titania Bang! You can find these characters in Coleman's novel, The Perils of Prague.


We follow up the story with a long-missed segment. A Little Seasoning! A.F. talks collaboration and creation with Tee Morris.


Finally, Theo reads a Mystery Meal that tears up The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde.
