This week's Culinary SOS request comes from Barry Kob in Palm Desert I recently was in Aspen, Colo., on a trip through the Rocky Mountains. The ham and bean soup at the Creperie du Village was wonderful. Is there any way you might be able to get the recipe? Ham and beans are a classic combination, and this soup doesn't disappoint in the slightest. Great Northern beans are gently cooked with aromatic vegetables and herbs to creamy tenderness, with chopped bacon and ham folded in toward the end. Thanks Barry!

Pigs -- and all their tasty, crackly skinned parts -- are an obsession for many. I profess I have a snout for the stuff, be it the ethereal rinds from the Publican in Chicago or Yuca's bring-me-to-tears cochinita pibil taco -- a must whenever I'm in L.A.

Packing a lot of action - if not a lot of sense - into its story, the Indian film "Dangerous Ishhq" likely won't win over any new believers to the idea of reincarnation as it weaves between a quilt of romantic thriller and historical drama. The film opens with a Mumbai supermodel (Karisma Kapoor, a star making her return to the screen after an absence of a number of years) preparing to leave for Paris to be an international face for a luxury fashion brand. As she is wavering about whether to leave behind her wealthy industrialist boyfriend, his beachfront home is attacked by a gang of kidnappers.

It's fitting that Ham &; Eggs Tavern , a new rock 'n' roll dive in downtown L.A., is practically next door to the Golden Gopher, Cedd Moses' first foray into manly historic core gentrification a decade ago. Ham &; Eggs harks back to how the downtown bar scene was just before it transformed into L.A.'s new party Babylon: underlighted, weirdly decorated and just cheap enough to get sauced on $20. Now that King Eddy has been revamped, Ham &;...

It was a lot of dough for a piece of old meat. But butcher Michael Feller seemed not to mind the $1,480 auction price he paid for a 101-year-old ham, which he plans to hang in his shop. The ham, cured by Cudahay in Chicago in 1892, spent most of its existence on display in a butcher's shop in the northern city of Leeds, according to Christie's, the London auction house that held the bidding.
