I've just discovered the magic of fresh bread crumbs. You might say it's about time, after 30 years of cooking. But I would remind you that I said the "magic" of fresh bread crumbs, not the "utility. " Everyone knows about using bread crumbs for coating a schnitzel or any other fried, baked or broiled thing. Or stuffing a bird or whole fish. Or scattering across the top of a gratin or tian before browning. I've even used them as toppings for fruit desserts, like a less-sweet version of a crisp.

Brittany, on the Atlantic coast of France, is famous for its shellfish. The most prized oysters come from Cancale, and the bouchot mussels, just an inch or so long, are tender and sweet. One bowl of those dainty mussels steamed in white wine and shallots turned me into a lifetime mussel lover. Here, Carlsbad Aquafarm in San Diego County sells bags of mussels grown off the California coast at the Hollywood and Santa Monica farmers markets. You can also find some wonderful mussel dishes at restaurants.

When you say "cassoulet," beans immediately come to mind. And, of course, they should, because the classical cassoulet, a French stew cooked in a casserole, is made with shelled haricot beans as well a meat. Well, cassoulets are not only confined to beans. We discovered, for instance, at La Palm D'ore at the Hotel Martinez in Cannes this summer, a lovely lobster cassoulet with tiny melon balls, prepared in the manner of the cassoulet.

  "Top Chef" alumnus Stefan Richter serves his pretzel knodel (dumplings) alongside braised red cabbage and crispy duck breast at his Santa Monica restaurant, Stefan's at L.A. Farm. But these knodel are delicious on their own. They're made with soft pretzels, which give the dumplings a little more heft and their distinctive flavor. They're seasoned with marjoram, white pepper and a little garlic. "When they are boiled and sexy," according to Richter's recipe, "you can take it up to another level and brown them in a sauté pan with a tablespoon of butter and some extra chopped parsley.

A friend and I were talking the other day about -- brace yourself -- what we were going to make for dinner. I said, "Nothing special, just some schnitzel." Her eyes got big and she said almost in a whisper: "I love schnitzel." We then spent five minutes reviewing our favorite schnitzel variations. So far no surprises, I mean, what's not to love about schnitzel? Take a pork cutlet, pound it thin, roll it in bread crumbs and quickly fry it.

What's not to love about schnitzel? Simply pound a pork cutlet nice and thin, bread it and pan-fry until golden. This recipe from Food Editor Russ Parsons can be made in minutes. You can serve your schnitzel alongside a crisp green salad, though you might just choose to round out the meal with Parsons' recipe for German potato salad. (Go ahead, the potato salad only takes about half an hour, and if you time it right you can do both dishes at once.) You can find the schnitzel recipe here , and the potato salad recipe here .

Could anything possibly be better than mac 'n' cheese? Probably not. We ran this recipe for "really the best-ever mac 'n' cheese" a few years ago -- and while I don't know if I would agree that it's the best- ever , I love the fact that it takes just over an hour to make, perfect if you're thinking about what to put on the table for dinner tonight. I'd love to know what you think goes into the best mac 'n' cheese -- secret ingredients, combinations of different cheeses, sheer cheese quantity -- so please let me know.

Is this a buy sign for bread crumbs? Billionaire Warren Buffett purchased bread crumbs -- and just about anything else that has wheat and the other grains forbidden to Jews during the observance of Passover -- from a local rabbi, Jonathan Gross of Beth Israel Synagogue in Omaha, Neb. It is ritual that goes on worldwide in Jewish communities. Families designate rabbis to find a non-Jew such as Buffett to purchase their chametz, or food made with leavening, before the holiday.
