There are plenty of ways to get kids to try new foods. Hide the broccoli in the brownies. Make muffins out of zucchini. Promise a trip to the toy store for a forkful of salad. Or you could do what the Days of Taste Program does: Take them to the farm so they can see where their food comes from. "We want them to enjoy the taste of real food, food without a cartoon character," said Riva Kahn, who oversees the program nationally and in Baltimore for the American Institute of Wine and Food.

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.

If sipping vino, gourmet noshing and watching boats glide along the Potomac River is your idea of a delicious weekend, then zip down to Maryland's other popular harbor for an outdoor foodie fest. The 2011 National Harbor Wine & Food Festival, in its fourth year, is a two-day event this weekend in Prince George's County, along the banks of the Potomac. The 300-acre resort community — simply called "the Harbor" by local residents — opened in 2008. The destination is just outside Washington and across the river from Alexandria, Va. The expansive waterfront site — still expanding with future offerings from Disney, among others — boasts a bevy of restaurants, hotels, shops, entertainment venues, upscale residences and office space.

Trend alert: Wine bars are opening where the food is as good as you can find at some of Baltimore's best restaurants - and you can buy a bottle of wine to take home with you. (Well, you know me. Three's a trend.) The Iron Bridge Wine Co. in Columbia started it all five years ago, with a wine bar, a small-plates menu critics raved about and a dining room that's also a wine shop. The Wine Market in Locust Point successfully followed the same game plan a couple of years later, although its liquor store is a separate room.

Luca's Cafe (1230 E. Fort Ave., 443-708-5694) is open for business and producing pizzas in Locust Point. This has been a much-anticipated opening because Chris Maler, one of the owners, is also involved with Matthew's Pizza in Highlandtown. He's quick to say that these are completely different pies, thin-crusted and cooked in a convection oven. The choice is steak, Mediterranean, seafood, hoagie, vegetable or a "fold" pizza. (That last is something like a calzone.) Still, Luca's isn't just a pizzeria.
