Chef Connie Spiros returns to the screen with a delicious seafood recipe as summer approaches and lobster prices come back down to earth. Cod and lobster cakes with a creamy remoulade sauce are served alongside mint-infused couscous and a brie prosciutto tartine. Connie shows you the recipe for this dish step-by-step when a new episode of “Meet Me in the Kitchen” airs Tuesday mornings at 11 a.m. and all weekend long at 7 p.m., both on the Public channel (Comcast 9/RCN 13).
“Talk of the Town” is back with two new episodes this week. First, get the full rundown of the upcoming annual Milton Music Fest and Fireworks and Celtic Sunday celebration. Festival co-hosts Brian Kelley and Lynda-Lee Sheridan preview all the attractions, and they also interview the musical duo headlining the country-themed music fest, Martin and Kelly …
… and immediately following this half-hour, Brian Kelley sits down for a chat with Chris Voehl, who is running for the Democratic nomination for the state’s 8th Congressional District seat in the U.S. House of Representatives. They talk policy, biography and politics. This special double episode is currently airing Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights at 9 p.m. on the Public channel.
Author Daniel Stone recently visited the Eustis Estate to give a talk on his recent book, “Food Explorer,” a nonfiction account of the life and impact of late-19th century botanist David Fairchild on the diversity of American food. Stone describes how Fairchild traveled the globe and brought back to America such crops as avocados, peaches and seedless grapes, as well as thousands more. This lecture is currently airing during the Monday Forum at 6:30 p.m. on the Public channel.
Milton Community Concerts closed out its spring season on Mother’s Day with “Women’s Voices: A Rally for Rosie’s Place,” a benefit concert for Rosie’s Place women’s shelter in Boston.

Featured performers included vocalists Jennifer Sgroe, Nyah Macklin, Emily Tweedy and Katherine Steele, Ensemble Lyrae, and dancers from Dance Complex in Cambridge. It is currently airing on Tuesday evenings at 8:30 p.m. on the Public channel.
