MARDELA SPRINGS -- Norman Christopher, the town councilman who sparked a month-long controversy by referring to slain civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. as "Buckwheat," was a conspicuous no-show last night as the council received two petitions for his removal.At the end of a day that also saw 100 people in nearby Salisbury rally against racism, the Mardela Springs council president merely accepted the petitions. Asked what he would do with them, Leland Smith shrugged and said, "We've never gotten one before."

Famous Yakitori One Restaurant is new in Lower Charles Village. Three popular Korean restaurants are within a few blocks, and there are a few Korean dishes on Yakitori One's menu. Maybe that's a given. But the specialty at this Japanese restaurant is - you guessed it - yakitori, those little grilled and skewered appetizers you find in many Japanese restaurants. Yakitori literally means grilled chicken, but the term is liberally applied, at least here, not only to parts of the chicken, but to bits of vegetable, meat and seafood, too. The very young owner here is Jae Kim, and Yakitori One has an infectiously youthful and arty ambience.

The buckwheat season arrived when the kitchen began smelling like a brewery.It was well into the fall when my grandmother, Lily Rose, started her weekly buckwheat cake production. "Flannel cakes," her name for what everybody else called pancakes, could be made early Sunday morning. The same was true for her light and fluffy waffles.The buckwheat batter was special. It needed a whole night to ferment and gurgle. The dish took guts to eat. There is no middle ground about this Baltimore breakfast.

Dorothea Wilson might not be the best-known name on downtown Baltimore's Charles Street, but for nearly 36 years, she was the cook at the Woman's Industrial Exchange. Hers were the hands behind the homemade rolls, chicken salad, tomato aspic and lemon chiffon pie that imparted much of the venerable Baltimore atmosphere to the fondly recalled tearoom. In 2002, the nonprofit Exchange board sought other avenues of revenue. The tearoom closed, and Wilson lost her job as the 19th-century building underwent a total renovation.

MARDELA SPRINGS -- Nearly 200 people crowded into a Methodist church on the edge of this Eastern Shore community last night and called for the resignation of a town commissioner who casually referred to the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday last week as "Buckwheat's birthday."The off-the-cuff racial slur by Norman Christopher has ignited a weeklong emotional debate in which the councilman was vilified as a bigot, hailed as a spokesman for the working class and chastised as a harmless bumbler.

THIS WEEK'S Sun article about twentysomethings who send out for dinner rather than doing any real cooking made me wince. I see the results of "the food delivered to the home" trend each Wednesday and Saturday morning when I take out the garbage for one of this age group's most ardent proponents. There's always a small dump of Styrofoam, pizza boxes and fried-rice containers. So how did I learn to cook? Simple. I like to eat well and when I was growing up, I just watched the masters in my family's Guilford Avenue kitchen.

A budding glamour girl has many things to keep track of -- hair clips, jewels, purses, pictures of devoted fans, hair ribbons. Alexa, Bianca and Clair make it easy. The girls aren't girls at all, they're wall hangings meant to organize clutter by giving a girl a place to put all the little doodads that invariably end up on top of the dresser, the counter and the floor. The Burnes of Boston wall sculptures come in three designs, the sophisticated Alexa, the ponytailed Clair and the cosmopolitan Bianca.

The low-carbohydrate bandwagon rolled onto York Road some weeks ago, hauling pasta, chips, candy bars, ice cream, pancake and bread mixes. The merchandise costs more than enough, but consider the promise, the new beginning, the new you. Marketeers refer to the low-carb "lifestyle," which seems mostly to be a thing demanding accessorizing. The new La Vida Lo-Carb store stands ready to provide the stuff tossed ashore by this latest dieting tsunami. Mark the low-carbohydrate spaghetti at $3.29 for an 8-ounce box, nearly three times the price of the standard brand.

During the past year I was lucky enough to be invited to visit several western spas, including the Sonoma Mission Inn in California. There were lessons to be learned there.I was expecting to be starved to death, which goes against the grain. I found instead plenty of healthful food, deliciously prepared. What a nice surprise.I talked recently with Pat Harper, a registered dietitian who serves as a consultant for several spas in the Pittsburgh area, including the Nemacolin Woodlands Spa in Farmington, Pa.Ms.

Bunches of rhubarb arrived at the Waverly Farmers' Market this past weekend -- a sign that local gardens will soon be overflowing. Stewed rhubarb was a springtime dish on my family's table, but don't think that everyone delighted in it. In fact, there were but a few people who smacked their lips for this sour, slimy stuff. Rhubarb was one of a category of difficult dishes that issued from the kitchen of the Guilford Avenue home where I was born. Each season had its own strange item -- a food that was a very different feed from the standard rib roast of beef, crab cake or spaghetti dinner.
