After being presented with a floral bouquet, actress Julianne Moore, front left, joins Hasty Pudding members in blowing kisses to members of the press and onlookers. (Photo by John Harrison) Actress Julianne Moore, third from left, parties with some of the gorgeous and adorable Hasty Pudding members at her "Woman of the Year" celebration on January 27. According to Wikipedia, "the Hasty Pudding Theatri- cals, known informally sim- ply as The Pudding, is a the- atrical student society at Harvard University, known for its burlesque musicals and for its status as the oldest collegiate theatrical organization in the United States. They present origi- nal student-written and stu- dent-composed musicals. "Formed in 1795 as an ar- tistic-minded fraternity, the Pudding began hosting mock trials of such phenomena as timely Harvard presidents and the study of mathemat- ics. The Pudding put up its first full performance, of a well-known tragic burlesque entitled Bombastes Furioso, on December 13th, 1844. "It has performed a produc- tion every year since, except twice during World War I and twice during World War II. After a period of producing popular comedies written by established playwrights, the Pudding began to write its own shows, starting with a production of Dido and Aeneas written by Owen Wister in 1882. "Previous members of the Theatricals have included Theodore Roosevelt, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, J.P. Mor- gan, Oliver Wendell Holmes, William Randolph Hearst, lyricist Alan Jay Lerner, Os- car winner Jack Lemmon, humorist Andy Borowitz, and former Massachusetts gov- ernol- William Weld. "Although the cast re- mains all-male (with female parts performed by actors in drag), women participate in the productions as writers, composers, orchestra, and members of the business staff and tech crew. "The name comes from a Colonial Era (originally Brit- ish) dish called hasty pud- ding, a kind of porridge made from cornmeal with molas- ses, honey or other ingredi- ents, a New World cousin to the Italian polenta; called "hasty" because it is cheap and easy to make. "It is not clear whether the dish was originally a staple or a dessert, but it is now served for dessert at the ban- quets thrown by the Pudding, such as opening night cel- ebrations and the annual "roasts" for their Man/ Woman of the Year. "The society is notable for their annual selection of famous actors as Woman of the Year (since 1951) and Man of the Year (since 1967). These awards are usually treated with great serious- ness by the honoree, who always attends the awards ceremony, and are treated to a celebratory "roast," and a parade [weather permit- ting]." Congratulations to the 2011 winners, Julianne Moore and Jay LenoI .......

Left to right: Alex Teague, Jeanine Burkhart (rear), Marie Simboli, Emeril Lagasse and Sue Hargrove. Iconic Emeril Lagasse was recently spotted at the Union Oyster House in Boston. He filmed a segment for his Cooking Channel program "Originals." His show features restaurants that have been established for many years and discovers what it is that keeps them in business for so long. Boston is lucky to have the Union Oyster House around since it was established 185 years ago. The freshness of the seafood is the top reason why the restaurant has remained so suc- cessful. The Union Oyster House remains loyal to its customers and welcomes thousands of new patrons each year. Their dedication to top quality food is second to none.
