Fixing food in trendy wraps

Tortillas and other pancakes filled with eclectic ingredients, otherwise known as wraps, are one of the trendiest foods around. (They originated in California, of course.)

Now two new cookbooks explore the subject in depth: "Wraps" by Sara Corpening et al. (Chronicle Books, $14.95) and "It's a Wrap" by Diane Phillips (St. Martin's Griffin, $14.95). Each gives intriguing recipes for every possible rolled combination, from wrappetizers to dessert.

More information, such as what wines will be tasted, can be found on the home page now.

Local food

Look for these two local companies' products on your supermarket's shelves:

* Global Cuisine has a number of internationally inspired sauces. Particularly worthy of note are a Chinese sweet and sour sauce and a spicy Mexican salsa.

* The Our Family Recipe line consists of all-natural, fat-free and low-fat salad dressings. My family's favorite is the cranberry vinaigrette.
