The secret to a great piece of fried dough is in the stretching. Before the popular fair treat is cooked in sizzling hot oil, coated in powdered sugar and handed to a hungry customer, the dough has to be pulled and prodded into just the right size and thickness so it will be chewy, not crispy. At the Glenelg High School band program's fried-dough stand at the Howard County Fair, "all those skills are passed down from one band generation to another," said Stacey Kight, a Glenelg senior.

The ribs aren't as good as they looked - a little too tough - but they will do. It's a breezy Friday night, the first evening of Artscape, the city's 23rd annual celebration of arts, music and culture. And food. Beer, loaded gyros, fried chicken, fried fish, fried dough - there's no resisting the temptation. The sweet and greasy aroma of kettle popcorn wafts through the warm air. One of the really nice things about Artscape - besides the waist-expanding food choices - is the strong communal vibe as you walk through the Mount Royal cultural area.

TWO ETHNIC FESTIVALS:TWO ETHNIC FESTIVALS: Lithuanians will be celebrating at Festival Hall and Greeks at St. Nicholas Church in Highlandtown this weekend. Both groups invite you to join in. * At Festival Hall, the city's Lithuanians will be feeding folks things like dazra, (spiced sausage served with sauerkraut), potato pancakes and traditional Lithuanian smoked chicken -- but leave some room for krustai, which is fried dough sprinkled with powdered sugar. And check out the 500-piece miniature display of the Battle of Tannenberg -- where Vytautas, Lithuania's war hero, defeated the Teutonic Knights in 1410.

On a recent morning I found myself eating cipelinai, potatoes stuffed with spiced meat and topped with bacon bits. This was followed by some naliesnikai su mesa, or crepes stuffed with meat. And I finished off with eziukas, or porcupine cake, a butter-cream cake with "quills" made of sugar stuck into it.This meal, a preview of the food that will be sold at the Lithuanian festival Saturday and next Sunday at Festival Hall, marked the beginning of the ethnic eating season. From next weekend until the fall, Baltimore's ethnic groups celebrate their heritage with festivals.

Cheeses, fruit, grilled chicken sustained the popeAs far as we know, Pope John Paul didn't get to sample any of our Chesapeake Bay specialties while he was here; but he didn't go away hungry either. When he retired to Cardinal Keeler's residence Sunday afternoon, Chef Randy Stahl of the Brass Elephant had waiting for him a tray of three cheeses and five fresh fruits, farfalle pasta with walnut sherry vinaigrette, grilled breast of chicken, grilled vegetables and a bottle of chardonnay.For dessert the pope feasted on krusciki (Polish fried dough)

In a little over two weeks, tens of thousands of people will converge in West Friendship to enjoy the Howard County Fair. They will check out the livestock, visit the exhibits, have fun on the rides and partake of all the traditional foods - fried dough, snowballs, hot dogs and french fries. Most are too busy having fun to give any thought to what it takes to put on the eight-day event scheduled Aug. 2-9. Fair organizers, 4-H Club members, vendors, farmers and community groups spend countless hours getting everything ready.

JOHN S. GLASS is the bravest stock analyst in America. Or maybe the most cynical. His favorite growth company, Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, doesn't earn much money, faces scary competitive challenges and sports a stock price that makes the Hope Diamond look cheap. Glass rates Krispy Kreme a "strong buy," but it's hard to find anybody who agrees. Krispy Kreme's executives apparently don't. They've been dumping shares by the millions. Glass gets bonus points on the bravery/cynicism meter because his employer, Deutsche Banc Alex.

Sometimes I wish we could have a block party on every street in this city - and on the same day. No cars, no trucks. Just block party after block party, so you could walk from Hamilton to Little Italy, by way of Govans and Waverly and Middle East, or from Mount Washington all the way to Pigtown, sampling food and flea markets and bingo games along the way. We should have one day designated: Block Party Baltimore.I dream, of course. The source of this delirium was another visit to yet another St. Anthony Festival in Little Italy over the weekend.

THE 81ST annual Flower Mart was beautiful, except for the coddies. Who throws a Flower Mart and fails to offer a coddie? The Women's Civic League, apparently, but why?If you didn't go to last week's Flower Mart, Baltimore's annual nod to manners and grace (and food), you missed a lovely time. Naturally, there were flowers. Also, arts and crafts and glad choral singing and folks from city and suburb gathered on the cobblestones of Mount Vernon Place to recall, perhaps, a kinder and gentler time.

Consider America's love affair with dough. Raw chocolate chip cookie dough. (They even put it in luxury ice cream.) Fried dough. Doughnuts. Thick-crust pizza. How can pannekoeken miss?These huge Dutch pancakes are the specialty of Fells Point's newest wacky little eatery, the Pan Handle. Soft, chewy and irresistibly doughy, the 16-inch pannekoek comes on a giant blue-and-white Delft plate sliced like pizza, with a choice of 101 toppings.Actually there are only about five toppings (OK, maybe a few more than five)
