Chef's 'Sessions' to air on MPT

Charlie Trotter (above), owner-operator of the top-rated Chicago restaurant that bears his name, is throwing his toque into the TV cooking-show ring.

Starting Sunday at 3 p.m., the master chef will introduce a 13-part series, called ``The Kitchen Sessions,'' on Maryland Public Television. With jazz playing in the background, the half-hour weekly show features Trotter preparing such dishes as poached beef tenderloin with gnocchi and roasted root vegetables, pumpkin soup with pheasant breast and fried ginger, and chocolate-ginger truffle tart with pear-caramel sauce.

Calendar that's cookin'

This month, you'll learn how to ``Wok, Rattle and Roll'' with a tasty stir-fry. The calendar covers the basics of poaching, baking, roasting, steaming and more - all ways to cook healthier, eat smarter and lower cancer risk, the institute says. The cost of the calendar is $5; call 800-843-8114, Ext. 716, with a credit card, or send a check to the American Institute for Cancer Research, Dept. C99, P.O.
