North by Northwest Guest Post and More Baroque Music

Exciting news! I've written a North By Northwest, 20th Century Limited Dining Car-inspired menu for Andrea's blog, Paper Sparrow. Please stop by and check out the Hitchcock Blog Party.

A preview of my menu 


Since it's Wednesday, we've got some Baroque music to listen to! I wasn't able to find all the selections this week, but here's what I was able to dig up:

Cavalli- Giasone
Act I, Scene 14

Guédron- "Si le parler et le silence"

Lully- Armide
Act II, Scene 5
Act III, Scenes 2-3
Act V, Scene 2

Week 1,Week 2, Week 3


  1. Sounds great! I have never seen North by Northwest - maybe it is time that I did.

  2. Oh my stars, just nipped over to Paper Sparrow and am STAGGERED by the creativity bursting out of that blog. Your post is brilliant and I now want to get out my sewing machine / crimping scissors / cookbooks / Hitchcock DVDs and forget about the day job!

  3. I just found Paper Sparrow a couple of weeks ago and I'm hooked! Andrea's really great to work with, too.

  4. North by Northwest is good fun--it's a film I actually own. I hope you like it!

  5. North by Northwest is one of my favorites, too. I have great memories of watching it with my Dad. You created a wonderful dinner for two!

  6. I love it, bravo, Lauren!
    A Hitchcock party, how cool is that!
