IMAGINE A tea party where guests scrutinized the scones, critiqued the curd and judged the jam. It sounds like afternoon tea with the Mad Hatter, except that this party played a valuable role for the hostess, Toni Johns of Kings Contrivance. Johns is preparing to open a Victorian-style tearoom, which she will manage, on Main Street in Ellicott City this fall. Called Tea on the Tiber, it will be on the first floor of the building that houses Source, Unlimited, an interior design shop owned by Oakland Mills residents Bill and Barbara Andrews.

Regarding your report "FDA trans-fat ban threatens Berger cookies" (Nov. 22), dietitian Angela Ginn said it best: "It may be tantalizing to our taste buds, but once it gets into our arteries it turns to sludge. " Bakery owner Charles DeBaufre Jr. has made a ton of money selling Berger cookies. He should have been ahead of the game and gotten rid of the trans-fat in his product. I stopped buying anything with trans-fats in it 10 years ago - including his cookies - and I am sure there are many others like me.

We were lucky; our drive into St. Michaels was, somehow, sans traffic, despite the fact that it was Friday evening and we surely were not alone in our desire to escape the city for a relaxing getaway on the Eastern Shore. As we drove through the downtown, stopping to let families cross the street for a dinner cracking shellfish at the Crab Claw, we looked for the turnoff for the Inn at Perry Cabin, our destination for the weekend. Beneath an umbrella of large linden trees lining the driveway, we eagerly anticipated seeing the results of the inn's four-month, $2.7 million renovation.

With an economic downturn looming, how many of us are willing to keep spending $50 for dinner? A different set of pundits has already pronounced the death of nouvelle cuisine; these days, sophisticated Americans supposedly shun the chevre and chow down on pot roast and hash browns.

Three men lift their cups. They sniff the contents thoughtfully, assessing its bouquet. "This has a robust, earthy flavor," said Ken Lee, who led the tasting. "I would pair it with gamier foods like duck or maybe a mushroom fricassee." What was being sampled, Bordeaux or a cabernet sauvignon? No, the men were soon nibbling Bhutan Red Rice, which is grown high in the Himalayas. "It's nourished with glacier water," said Lee, who is chief executive officer of Lotus Foods, based in El Cerrito, Calif.

OK, can anyone think of a word other than 'nasty' to describe what they've just eaten?" chef Nick Sheridan, owner of Cuisine Catering, asks the 27 third-graders at Yorkwood Elementary School. What the 8- and 9-year-olds have just eaten is unprocessed, unsweetened cocoa powder. Some think they've had cinnamon, others insist it was coffee -- their young taste buds acquiescing to their more developed sense of sight to help them make sense of the experience. But this is just the first day in a three-day workshop offered by the American Institute of Wine and Food aimed at developing children's sense of taste.

Casey's didn't set my taste buds on fire, but it did warm my heart. This is a true Baltimore restaurant, run by a brother and sister and the brother's wife. The menu brims with homey favorites like meatloaf, lasagna and Irish stew, and the atmosphere is completely free of arrogance or irony. Poor:]

There's something to be said for getting back to one's roots, literally. Howard County schoolchildren are being introduced, some for the first time, to where their food comes from. Not just its origins, but how good fresh food tastes, too. Days of Taste, a national nonprofit connected with the American Institute of Wine and Food, teaches fourth-graders how food goes from the farm to the table and how eating fresh food can also help them feel good. Partnering with the Nutrition and Physical Activity Coalition in Howard County and local chefs, Days of Taste spends three hands┬┐on sessions with students where they discover how different foods taste, take a trip to a local farm to see how vegetables and fruits are grown, then prepare a salad and dressing.

Ah, the quintessential time-honored family road trip. Maui's Road to Hana? Sure, a nice family drive. The breathtaking Mount Blanc circuit of France, Italy and Switzerland? Without doubt, a family bucket list candidate. But for my tastes nothing can hold a candle to the diamond ring of family circuit routes. Leaving from Vancouver, British Columbia, this fantabulous trip northeast to the Canadian Rockies, then west to the Pacific Ocean and then by ferry back to Vancouver will squeeze reluctant oohs and aahs from the moodiest, most text-addicted teen.

The client's in town. The client loves sushi. I want the client to love me. I take the client to Joss Cafe. I pick up the tab. Done deal. You can replace "client" with out-of-town guest, superior officer, love interest, fellow foodie, or anyone else you want to impress, Joss promises to appeal because of two strong leading indicators: fine sushi, great space. Just don't go there expecting bargain-basement tabs. When you walk up half a flight of stairs off the sidewalk on 413 N. Charles and enter Joss, you're stepping up in more ways than one. 12:42 p.m. We enter a sparsely attended dining room and are offered our choice of unoccupied tables.

So she started actively seeking out products that would satisfy her taste buds but keep her fat intake down.The inadvertent result from all her research is a catalog, "Eleanor & Company," that lists about 150 specialty foods that are low in fat, sugar, salt and cholesterol.For more information, call (800) 762-5436, or write Eleanor & Company, P.O.

Bravo's Top Chef, whose third season premiered last week, is back with a vengeance. The first casualty was Clay, a self-taught Mississippi chef. His first mistake was misunderstanding the "Quickfire Challenge," in which he was supposed to create an amuse bouche, or a bite-size culinary creation that teases the taste buds. The concept was beyond him, which is strange since the amuse bouche has appeared in the previous two seasons' challenges. The moral of the story is, if you are going to go on a reality show, watch it first.

Maruha, a Japanese steakhouse, opened last year in Columbia's Hickory Ridge shopping center in space that used to be a Blockbuster. I'm glad someone told me that, because I did think it was strange when the waitress told me I had to … I know there's a good video store-Japanese restaurant joke out there somewhere, maybe something about rewinding, but I just can't come up with it, and it's killing me. I'm not saying I spent more time...
