Culinary expectations

Food & Wine magazine nominates these culinary trends for up-to-the-minute home cooks in 1998: white foods (as in white eggplant and white asparagus, not rice), soul food, sea salt, bison, big beans like giant limas, what the magazine calls "artisanal" American foods (olive oils, breads and cheeses), tandoor ovens, slow-roasted everything and tentacles (octopus and squid).

Home teaching

If your New Year's resolution is to become a better cook, the Tutoring Connection has just the thing: a chef who comes to your kitchen to give cooking lessons. Steve Blair from Morgan Millard Restaurant, who has his own show on Channel 11, teaches topics like "Cooking Five Things at One Time" and "Five Easy Dinner Recipes." For more information and prices, call 410-832-5879.

Local recipes

Those who love community cookbooks will want "A Taste of Catholicism II: A New Generation" (Cathedral Foundation Press; $12). It's filled with recipes from local cooks. If you have trouble finding it at area bookstores, call 410-547-5324 to order.
