Movie cookbook offers a real taste of 'Home'

Looking for a different dish to take home for the Thanksgiving holidays? How about Adele's Big Bird (actress Anne Bancroft plays the mom, Adele Larson), one of 75 recipes linked to the just-out movie, "Home for the Holidays," which was filmed in Baltimore. Holly Hunter plays daughter Claudia. The book includes director Jodie Foster's Famous Thanksgiving Orange Cups, and, in tune with the diverse natures of the fictional family, recipes are coded for high-fat, low-fat and vegetarian. Recipes in the "Home for the Holidays Cookbook" (Oxmoor House, $14.95) were tested by the kitchens of Southern Living and Cooking Light. A number of area restaurants are offering events with special wines or menus this month; here are three:

* Nov. 15 at Rudys' 2900, 2900 Baltimore Blvd., Finksburg, game night, with wild fowl, fish and venison. At 7 p.m., $45 per person. Reservations, (410) 833-5777.
