Fusion Cuisine may be the culinary buzzword of the '90s. We've tried Thai, finished French and been inundated by Italian. Sometimes it seems the only culinary frontiers left are a mix of multiethnic themes. But Fusion Cuisine has really been going on forever. Every nationality borrows foreign food ideas, changing them in the process.

John A. Zaccaro Jr., the son of former vice presidential candidate Geraldine A. Ferraro and John A.

You'll probably indulge more freely in this rich-sounding combination when you learn that the ricotta cheese in the ravioli is low-fat and the heavy cream in the sauce has been diluted with low-fat milk.

Joanna Kavanagh's review of Paul Mantee's "In Search of the Perfect Ravioli" (Dec. 22) was excellent, but she says that Paul Stewart was the author of "Where did you go?" "Out." "What did you do?"

In St. Louis, where the toasted ravioli was invented, the crunchy appetizers are served at counter joints, in old family restaurants and at trendy cafes. Last month, they were served at a Beverly Hills party by La Veranda chef/owner David Slay, who held a benefit at his restaurant to raise money for flood victims in the Midwest. "Originally, I'd planned to cook a special prix fixe menu to raise a few dollars for the Red Cross," says Slay, who left St.
