Dear SOS: I need help. I have not been able to make a tasty meat loaf. Please find one for me. --FAITHFUL READER Dear Faithful: The best meat loaf I know of comes from 72 Market Street, a restaurant in Venice, Calif. We happen to have the recipe for this exquisite meat loaf, which, says chef Leonard Schwartz, was a result of years of experience, not just experiment. The loaf is served with spinach and mashed potatoes.

Here are five great Mourvèdre-based wines from Paso Robles, Calif. Because they are produced in small quantities, it may be necessary to order them from the winery. 2007 Anglim Winery Mourvèdre "Hastings Ranch Vineyard" ($34): Quite a spicy wine, with notes of cinnamon, star anise and black pepper. Black plum fruit comes through on the mid-palate and drives through to the finish. 14.9% alcohol. http://www.anglimwinery.com 2007 Edward Sellers Mourvèdre ($35): Dark cherry fruit with black pepper and a gamy "low note" to keep it interesting.

Total time: 40 minutes Servings: 6 Note: From Nancy Silverton. Silverton says burgers are the perfect party food because the toppings can be done in advance, then guests use them to personalize their burgers. Though she offers three cheeses, she says that from experience, most takers are for Gruyere, 25% might take cheddar and one of a group will want blue. Crumble out enough blue to look pretty in a bowl, 2 to 3 ounces, and know it may go into salad dressing for the next meal.

Dear SOS: My husband and I are in love with the seafood jambalaya linguine at King's Fish House in Long Beach. Can you get the recipe? Dave & Christine Formella Long Beach Dear Dave and Christine: With flavors combining a homemade Creole seasoning blend and rich brown roux, this jambalaya packs a nice depth of flavor with a little added kick. Finish the dish with a little andouille sausage and fresh seafood, then toss in some pasta right before serving for a rich, hearty one-dish meal.

Our word pepper comes, by way of Greek, from the Sanskrit name of a cousin of black pepper known as long pepper ( Piper longum ). While black pepper comes in little round wrinkled peppercorns, long pepper takes the form of curved stalks about three quarters of an inch long that consist of a lot of tiny, dusty, grayish, pepperish things. Probably in the beginning the Greeks were importing long pepper, some varieties of which are hotter than black pepper.
