“Nostalgia: A longing for the familiar…or beloved circumstances…that are now remote… any longing for something far away… or long ago… a wish to return home”

In a Bill Cosby Storytelling style the “Chef” presents a menu of Hilarious, nostalgic, and sometimes inspirational personal adventures. Reminisce as you travel back in time with Peggy as“ The Bookie in the Zoot Suit” takes form. Go with her to work as a weary waitress dealing with “Conflict and Resolution.”See how she handles her experiences while working in a medical office with “One Mad Cop” and “The Italian.”Listen to her as a clueless mother with,
