Coravin , a company founded by medical device inventor Greg Lambrecht, has introduced a game-changing gadget for preserving wine that allows you to pour a glass of wine without ever removing the cork - and without oxygen ever touching the wine. A thin, hollow needle is inserted through the cork to extract the wine. As it's poured out, it's replaced with inert argon gas from a small, neat canister so that oxygen never touches the wine. Remove the needle and the cork reseals itself.

Re: "How I Made It: Mario Batali," Sept. 20: It's appalling for celebrity chef Batali to say, "Our check averages are under $100 . . . and you can always get a bowl of pasta for $15 to $18." He is obviously clueless about what the rest of the nation is experiencing during this recession. Vicky Hoffman Los Angeles

As co-host of "The Chew" (a food and talk show on ABC), Daphne Oz gets to sample items like the Big Mike Burger (two patties, three buns and cheese), chicken and dumplings a la Gwyneth Paltrow and pizza by fellow host Mario Batali. But the daughter of celeb TV doctor Mehmet Oz also penned "The Dorm Room Diet: The 10-Step Program for Creating a Healthy Lifestyle Plan That Really Works" and helped found HealthCorps, a nonprofit that promotes teen health. Oz talked about fitness and her meat-loving co-hosts in a recent interview.

Wash your hands with kitchen grease? Yes, and not any grease, but the grease from Mozza, the pizzeria and osteria co-owned by celebrated chefs Nancy Silverton and Mario Batali. The L.A. dining landmark has teamed up with Marshall Dostal, the founder of Further soap, to extract glycerin from waste grease, purify it and use it in a liquid cleanser scented with bergamot, olive and grasses. The soap, to be supplied to Mozza's restrooms, also is available for purchase. An 8-ounce pump bottle is $18.

When the focaccia emerges from the oven at Chi Spacca , it resembles a blistered and bubbly moonscape. Cheese bubbles up between gashes in the thin, crackling crust. I take a bite: This may be the single best thing I've put in my mouth all year. It tastes of olive oil, salt and tangy molten cheese all at once. This isn't the typical bready focaccia from Liguria, but a very particular version from Recco, a little hill town near Genoa. The focaccia is the result of two years' research by Nancy Silverton and Chi Spacca chef Chad Colby.
