The sophisticated sweet tooth

You won't find doughnuts here, but Confections of Annapolis has just about everything else -- as long as it involves cake batter, pate a choux, puff pastry, whipped cream or frosting. The shop specializes in elegant custom pastries, from croissants, scones and petits fours to exquisite five-figure wedding cakes. Pictured is a champagne and raspberry mousse bombe with white chocolate and gold dust. Confections is at 53 West St. in Annapolis (410-295-0459).

Spend the evening of March 27 in the kitchen with cookbook author Clifford Wright and the Epicurean Club of Maryland. Chef's Expressions at Scarlett Place in the Inner Harbor will prepare a buffet using recipes from Wright's new cookbook, "Italian Pure & Simple."

"In the Cucina" starts at 7: 30 p.m. at Scarlett Place. The cost is $20. Call 410-486-0339 for more information.

Passover packages

The Kosher Connection in Portland, Ore., sends Passover gift packages all over the country and to Israel. "A Taste of Passover," for instance, would be good for a student away from home. It includes matzo, honey-apricot spread, chicken soup, spiced nuts, a chocolate Star of David lollipop, gefilte fish and coffee for $29.95. Call 800-950-7227 to order or for a catalog.
