If you've seen a sword-fight scene lately, you may have seen the Palace Kitchen Boys. As a way of understanding palace kitchens and their times, they've studied swordsmanship, so these days they're also on call for movies and TV. If being cooks-sword fighters sounds like a stretch, it won't be the only thing about Marc Meltonville and Richard Fitch that does. What these two Englishmen do as coordinators of the Historic Kitchens Project goes way beyond dressing up for a Renaissance Faire.

Cool alphabet. It's like the visual analogue of a fast-talking argument full of unexpected twists. In L.A., we get to savor all sorts of writing systems--Thai, Chinese, Armenian, even Ethiopian--but we don't often see the jazzy, angular Bengali script. And here it is, right on the outskirts of Koreatown. In English the sign reads "Jafran Royal Kitchen Garden of Bengal"--a name that has an unexpected twist or two itself.

The Wine Institute has released its figures on world wine production, and the U.S. is still the fourth-largest producing nation, after Italy, France and Spain. But we're only No. 33 in per-capita consumption at just 2.08 gallons a year, barely ahead of Uzbekistan at 1.81 gallons. Some countries with higher per-capita wine rates than ours: Slovenia (12.88 gallons), Uruguay (9.28), Australia (5.25), Madagascar (4.66) and Lithuania (2.26).

Not many pastries have ever had their own parade, but baklava has. In the days of the Ottoman Empire, it was the focus of a celebration called the Baklava Alayi, or Baklava Procession. It was held by the Janissaries, the personal troops of the sultan. The procession originated out of a simple communal soldiers' meal held on the 15th day of the Muslim month of Ramadan.

The Hotel Bel Air Sands notified us through their publicist, Dorothy Hundley, that a Mother's Day cake, which pastry chef Annette Gallardo was preparing, was noteworthy. "You'll love it," said the publicist. Well, we don't usually jump out of chairs to follow a story on the promise of a publicist, but the cake, which is called Simnel, and was (possibly still is) a tradition in Britain on Mother's Day was worth a look, a taste. It certainly would be something different for Mother's Day.

Trying to eat a warm, doughnut-size meat pie from Beijing Pie House with any sort of decorum is a real challenge. They're probably best consumed leaning over a huge plate or the kitchen sink, because the garlicky juices spurt out in every direction the instant you bite into the crisp, potato-chip-like crust. These xian bing , a sort of northern dim sum aptly nicknamed Chinese hamburgers, show up occasionally in local northern Chinese restaurants or Taiwanese snack shops. But Beijing native Ming Yang (and many of his friends from Beijing)

February 7, 1991 | MOLLY CULBERTSON, Culbertson writes for Country Home magazine.
Inspired by new, exotic ingredients and a need for simple, hearty fare, the people who settled this country developed a unique style of cooking as they moved ever westward. These vigorous folk moved West for myriad reasons: to conquer untamed territory, to seek their fortunes in gold, to farm, to herd cattle or sheep. Linking them to one another--and to generations before and to come--was the longing for adventure.

July 22, 1993 | NANCIE McDERMOTT, McDermott is a Southern California cooking teacher and author of "Real Thai" (Chronicle Books; $9.95)
I went to Thailand in 1975, one of 30 greenhorn Peace Corps volunteers assigned to teach high school English. During our first three months in Thailand, we underwent an intensive training program devoted primarily to language classes and practice teaching. Learning to love Thai food was not on our schedule, but sooner or later most of us did, since the food is extraordinary and the pleasures of cooking and eating are the heart of Thai life.
