A Taste of Broadway in Ohio
Nestled in the town of Springboro, Ohio is something unexpected – a dinner theater. La Comedia combines Broadway-style productions with fine dining.
La Comedia’s most famous dish is probably the sweet potato souffle. Joe Adkins, the theater’s current producer, has been an integral part of La Comedia for over thirty years. Joe’s brother David bought the theatre in 1995, and the Adkin family loves being part of its unique and wonderful history – you can read more about it.
What’s the Difference Between Sweet Potatoes and Yams?
This is a question that often comes up. The confusion arises because the names sweet potato and yam are commonly used interchangeably. But, in reality, they are two different root vegetables and belong to two different plant families.
The sweet potato is a member of the morning glory family, whereas the yam has the lily as a relative. Yams are larger and sweeter than sweet potatoes and are not as nutritious. Click here for more information on how to tell them apart and cook each of them properly.
