Kids and sushi

Every culture has its favorite finger food. Tricycle Press, the children's book division of Ten Speed Press, is initiating a World Snacks series to introduce our littlest eaters to bite-sized foods from around the world. First Book of Sushi features colorful illustrations and rhyming text to inform and charm eaters big and small. A sample:

"Miso in my sippy cup, tofu in my bowl. Crab and avocado fill my California roll. I'll take yellowtail hamachi and a red maguro slice. Big big futomake has so many grains of rice!"

The cardboard book sells for $6.95.

Spicing it up

Flavors that not long ago were relegated to ethnic categories have moved onto mainstream menus, creating a taste for expanded herb and spice selections. To meet the demand, McCormick's Gourmet Collection has added five new herbs and spices - lemon grass, crushed rosemary, wasabi powder and two kinds of chili peppers, as well as nine new blends, including garam masala, fajita seasoning and Jamaican jerk seasoning.-
