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.

A woman accused of stuffing her 5-month-old son's mouth with pepper to stop him from sucking his thumb was held without bond today after being charged with first-degree murder. Elizabeth Jewell, 25, was charged Tuesday with killing her son, Michael. Police Lt. Darrell Kitrel said Jewell and her husband, Edward, 39, reported Friday that the infant accidentally ate pepper and died. But an autopsy showed the child died of asphyxiation from swallowing "a whole lot" of ground black pepper.

Whenever Italian friends come to stay, I've noticed they can go at most three, maybe four days before they can't stand it anymore: They have to have some pasta. If that means cooking it at a campground or beside the road, so be it. This is comfort food at its most basic. And if there's nothing much in the cupboard, well then that's why aglio olio (garlic and olive oil) was invented. Or for that matter cacio e pepe (Pecorino Romano and lots of black pepper). Here are three places to get that pasta fix. Gusto Chef/owner Vic Casanova grew up in an Italian American neighborhood in the Bronx, cooked his way around New York and then headed west, where he launched the contemporary Italian restaurant Culina at the Four Seasons.

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.
