Trips for cooks

If you dream of sautM-iing in Sicily or mincing in Morocco, "Cooking in Paradise" by Joel and Lee Naftali is for you. The 288-page paperback lists more than 150 cooking-vacation programs around the world, including some rather obscure courses like kosher-cooking in Tuscany. The book, published by St. Martin's Press, retails for $15.95 and is available from major booksellers.

Seeking weed recipes

Looking to find some good in an evasive weed, the Patapsco Valley State Park is holding its second cook's challenge for the best recipe using garlic mustard -- a cooking green brought to this country in the 1800s that now threatens native plants. Entries must be received between noon and 12:30 p.m. Saturday at Shelter No. 22 in the park's Avalon/Glen Artney area off U.S. Route 1. The entry fee is $5 or 5 pounds of freshly picked garlic mustard. For more information, call 410-480-0824.
