The clean, hot flavor of fresh ginger warms and refreshes like no other seasoning ingredient. An essential flavor of Chinese cooking, ginger is of inestimable importance to Asian dishes. Fresh ginger resembles a thick, knobby root with pale brown skin and moist gold flesh. The fresh root -- really an underground stem called a rhizome -- is nothing like dried, ground ginger; the latter is no substitute for fresh ginger. Whether ginger should be sliced, minced or grated depends on the dish.

If I were a betting man, I'd wager that ginger will be to the 1990s what goat cheese was to the '70s and sun-dried tomatoes were to the '80s -- the food that so grabs our jaded palates it starts to show up everywhere, from atop pizzas to inside muffins.Compared with the others, however, ginger is a long shot, being neither dear nor rare. In its raw state, it's ugly, a knobby, tawny root that looks as if it suffers a vitamin deficiency.On the other hand, ginger has a few things going for it. Versatility, for one; it comes in several forms -- fresh, ground, preserved, crystallized -- and lends itself to numerous applications.

So much for typecasting. Days before her Baltimore appearance, you call the actress who played flighty Ginger on Gilligan's Island and while you don't expect her to be preening before the hypnotized skipper, she still could throw you a wink, a nod, a saucy turn of phrase. "I'm just looking at the Iranian president answering questions. Oh, it's heavy duty. Man, I really wanted to see this," says Tina Louise on the phone from her New York apartment. If you go Tina Louise will be reading her children's book, When I Grow Up, at the Baltimore Book Festival today at 1 p.m. at the Storytelling Tent in the west park of Mount Vernon Place.
