I've been searching for Dutch-process cocoa. In the supermarkets, I just see Nestle and Hershey's cocoa, neither of which says "Dutch" or "processed with alkali." Chocolate liquor has two principal components - cocoa solids and cocoa butter - and in 1828, a Dutchman named Coenraad Van Houten invented a method for separating the two. The newly independent cocoa solids also could be pulverized to make a fine powder with lots of chocolate flavor but little fat: cocoa powder. Van Houten also invented a process by which cocoa powder, which is naturally quite acidic, was treated with an alkaline to neutralize the flavor and deepen the color.

Food manufacturers just love wasabi, using this Japanese rhizome (or cheaper American horseradish) to jazz up oils, mayonnaise, dressings, crackers, nuts and even jams. Those looking to experience the trend can find wasabi products in a variety of locations, from neighborhood supermarkets to fancy food stores and Asian markets. Here are some of the wasabi products to look for: Hime Japanese horseradish powder, $2.80 to $4 an ounce. This powder makes a green paste with a flavor as bold as its bright green color.

Police, fire and hazardous materials crews responded to Baltimore's Penn Station Monday evening after a white powdery substance was found on a train inbound from Washington. Baltimore Fire Capt. Roman Clark said the powder found on the 5:05 p.m. MARC train from Washington was tested and found to be non-hazardous. A conductor making an announcement in D.C. rapped a faulty microphone against a wall, causing the powder to fall. Hazmat crews were then alerted, Clark said. Officials did not identify the substance.

Cavaliers@Celtics 8 p.m. [ESPN] You figure these two teams very well could end up butting heads to decide who gets to the NBA Finals from the Eastern Conference. And have you noticed how LeBron James (left) is being called LBJ these days? Next thing you know, instead of tossing powder into the air before a game, he'll be picking up a dog by his ears.

When you're out of an ingredient, improvise. It's more convenient than making a frantic trip to the store. Check your shelves to see if you can substitute other ingredients already on hand. To remember how, clip this handy chart and post it in a kitchen cupboard.Substitutes* 1 tablespoon cornstarch (for thickening) equals 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour.* 1 teaspoon baking powder equals 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar plus 1/4 teaspoon baking soda.* 1 cup sugar equals 1 cup packed brown sugar, or 2 cups sifted powdered sugar.
