Recurring characters and a common narrator, young sous-chef Jean Claude, effectively turn into high adventure the dramatization of four short stories set in the world of international cuisine. Through hushed asides to the audience, Jean Claude's dialogue advances the plot and creates a sense of intimacy that makes the listener as confidant as the sous-chef who solves each murder mystery. A soupçon of French phrases, Scottish accent, and Japanese idioms enhances the international flavor of these stories. Clever production brings depth to each dramatization by adding levels of sound that create a sense of distance in time and place to reveal a character's memories or show past action. R.M.
