* ITEM: Antioch Farms Chicken Breast* SERVINGS: one* COST: $1.19* PREPARATION TIME: About 7 minutes using microwave method or 35 minutes in conventional oven.* REVIEW: Ever order chicken cordon bleu at a burger joint? That's what these precooked, boneless chicken breasts reminded me of. To their credit, these are sold individually, so each member of your family can have a favorite flavor (chicken cordon bleu, chicken Kiev, chicken stuffed with brown and wild rice). While they're not suitable for your next dinner party, they are an upscale alternative to chicken fingers.

When they opened Eldersburg's County Cork Wine Pub in 2010, business partners Arlene Stecher and Chris McManus were thinking of their neighbors. McManus and Stecher, both Eldersburg residents, wanted to build a spot where adults could gather with their friends, enjoying good food and drinks. They succeeded - and those neighbors have noticed. On a recent Thursday night, County Cork Wine Pub was packed with couples and chatty groups of friends. We lucked into the last available spot, a high-top table in an alcove toward the back of the restaurant.

Like the ingredients in hot dogs, what stirs the human heart sometimes defies easy description. Luncheon explorer Brian Pienta sat inside the Greene Turtle restaurant in Laurel and offered this rationale for his bold attempt to push the eating envelope. "Basically, it started because ... just because," he stammered. Sound familiar?

A Memorable Place A souffle class at Paris' Cordon Bleu By Georgene Dodd SPECIAL TO THE SUN My husband has always managed to keep our marriage full of surprises. For our anniversary, he outdid himself. I was being sent to school -- not any school, but the renowned Cordon Bleu in Paris. OK, the class was only one day, but this was the cooking major leagues. Given a choice of seven one-day courses, I chose souffles. A word of warning to any aspiring applicants: This was not a sit-and-watch-the-chef course, but a hands-on, wimps-need-not-apply session.

PARIS -- It is not the new currency that strikes this returning visitor's eye. The euro has been accepted, and the franc retired, without much fuss. Nor is it the mobile phone that hangs from nearly every French citizen like an earring. Nor is it the Benetton on the Champs-Elysees or The Gap on the Rue de Commerce that seem like icons of change and globalization. On this bright April day, as I leave the much demeaned and very crowded McDonald's where I have been allowed to indulge my great-nephew in not-so-French fries as a nod to his dual citizenship, I confront an image much more surprising: Crowds of young French men and women walking and eating their way down the street.
