The swanky Gelson's Markets chain may be sold, another sign of the intense competition for the food dollars of stubbornly cautious consumers. The 62-year-old brand's Compton-based parent, Arden Group Inc., said in a statement Monday that it had "initiated a process to explore and evaluate strategic alternatives, which may include a possible sale. " The 16-unit chain, headquartered in Encino, has developed a reputation for celebrity clientele and locates its stores in well-to-do areas such as Santa Barbara, Pacific Palisades and Newport Beach; certain ones feature red-carpet-quality service such as valet stands.

That's the famous New Mexican chile grown in the Mesilla Valley with its hot days and cool nights. She also sent me the link to Melissa's , a produce company that brings in the Hatch chiles. Melissa's will be roasting up the chiles at several SoCal locations over the next few weeks.

Holy cow! After spending a fortune on Web-ordered steaks ("Netsteak," June 27) couldn't you have thrown in a couple that were locally bought from high-end markets, such as Bristol Farms? DAVID WILCZYNSKI Redondo Beach In my opinion, you missed the greatest steak Web site of them all, http://www.omahasteaks.com, and as a Cornhusker, I may be more than a little partial.

Here's something you probably won't find in any other grocery store outside the Bristol Farms in Newport Beach: a former major league pitcher manning the seafood counter. And it's no publicity stunt. FOR THE RECORD: Dennis Lamp: In the Jan. 31 Sports section, Jerry Crowe's column about former major league pitcher Dennis Lamp said that in 1979 Lamp gave up Willie McCovey's 513th home run, a record for left-handed batters at the time. The home run extended McCovey's National League record but was not a major league record.

At America's first Thanksgiving, if you looked around the table you could be sure that someone there caught the bird, someone killed the bird and someone cooked the bird. But today, it seems that all we can be sure of is that someone--and all their friends and family--is going to eat the bird. More than ever, Americans are gracing their Thanksgiving tables with feasts prepared by, and purchased from, nearby restaurants or grocery stores.

IF GROCERY SHOPPING gets any easier, it might even become fun again. Bristol Farms, Pasadena's gourmet market, has opened a cook store and a cooking school next door--and they house everything a kitchen whiz needs. It makes for a natural progression from Bristol Farms, says executive chef Claudia McQuillan. Cooks "can shop for groceries and wine in the market; at the cooking school, they can learn how to prepare their purchases; then they can buy the proper equipment to cook them in."
