Photos, graphics for your sweet tooth

Something new at something old: Donna Beth Joy Shapiro, owner of the Old Waverly History Exchange & Tea Room (414 E. 31st St.), has a new computerized tool that prints edible photographs and graphics on cakes and cookies. She's making postcard-sized gift cookies using antique Baltimore and holiday postcard designs ($5). Also new at the tearoom are parties for kids featuring a cream tea (scones, cake and tea) and a scrapbooking project. Call 410-889-7112 for more information.

Gourmet goodies from Williams-Sonoma

Just in time for the holidays, Williams-Sonoma has come out with its first gourmet food catalog. If you're looking for green corn tamales, smoked pimento powder, New Zealand venison, fabulous imported cheeses or chocolate-stuffed figs, you'll find them here. Most of these products aren't available in the Williams-Sonoma stores. To get your copy, call 800-699-0449.

New trend: a craving for protein

Our national obsession with fat-free products seems to be waning, according to the Grocery Manufacturers of America, in favor of a new craze: protein-rich foods. Best sellers include soy-based products, energy bars and power beverages.

Who knows? Consumers craving energy may even turn to meat as a protein source.
