T he new year doesn't start for some folks until they attend the Rotary Club of Baltimore's annual oyster roast. This year, about 1,800 people flooded the 5th Regiment Armory to eat, drink, play blackjack or one of the wheels, and catch up with old friends. As soon as the doors opened, lines formed at 10 oyster-shucker stations. The scene was eye-opening for Damien Pastor, a Johns Hopkins University student and Rotary Ambassador Scholar from France.

It was love at first bite. I went to Philadelphia to eat cheesesteaks, but instead fell for the Italian roast pork. It happened at Tony Luke's, a South Philadelphia stronghold of sandwiches. There are two Tony Luke's eateries; both of them sit on the first block of E. Oregon Ave. There are also two men named Tony Luke. There is Tony Luke Sr., who presides over the sit-down restaurant, a sports bar that opened 10 years ago. Then there is Tony Luke Jr., who with his brother, Nick, runs the less decorous carryout joint across the street.

It isn't easy to love or cook pork tenderloin. But recently I did both. Long and lean, the tenderloin has little fat, the stuff that makes most pork dishes succulent and makes many pig eaters weep for joy. Moreover, this piece of pork is not loaded with flavor and is often overcooked, facts of tenderloin life that even its admirers admit. "If you braise it, it is going to dry out on you," said Bruce Aidells, who has written a 2004 paean to the pig, "Bruce Aidells' Complete Book of Pork."

The Western Tech football coaches will host a bull roast Saturday night to raise money for the family of Chris Mason-Hale, the Wolverines player who suffered a paralyzing spinal cord injury in August. "We've been planning to do something for quite some time," said Wolverines defensive coordinator Matt Quayle. "I've been around football for a while and you just know this is one of the most severe injuries anyone can ever have. We just can't sit by. We want to do as much as possible for him."

Polly Ailor Tucker of Knoxville, Tenn., was looking for a recipe of her late mother's for what she called "Pittsburg Potatoes." While she watched and even helped make the dish over the years, it's been too long for her to remember the specifics. She says the dish was a mainstay at her mother's dinner parties and that "it is legend among all those who joined us at the dinner table." Carol Rohn of Cockeysville had the recipe Tucker was searching for, and she said that this was a favorite dish while she was growing up. I tested the dish using a good-quality sharp cheddar cheese, which gave it a nice, rich flavor.

At Eddie's market in Roland Park, cuts of beef beckon behind glass like a jeweler's gems. Behold the rib roast - upright and regal, luxuriously marbled. As for the tenderloin, the store displays only tiny, tantalizing pieces - the whole roast, the cut of kings, is ensconced somewhere behind the counter. Beef is an exclusive commodity indeed. But in a recession, a roast topping $20 a pound seems almost gauche - if not outright out of reach. According to a Consumer Reports poll, 76 percent of those surveyed vowed to cut back on holiday spending this season.
