Augusta "Gus" Simpson, a cooking channel diva, is turning 50 and is in danger of losing her television show. She has to cope with professional struggles, like the beauty queen turned chef appearing on her program, and personal ones, like her daughters' complicated love lives. Barbara Rosenblat gives a flawless performance, creating voices for Gus and each of the characters. Rosenblat performs Jacobs's hilarious scenes perfectly, capturing all the intended humor. Her skill as a narrator is highlighted by her ability to switch characters seamlessly, as demonstrated by her shifts from Spanish beauty queen Carmen to New Jersey next-door neighbor Hannah. A delicious performance from soup to nuts. R.F. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine
