Here's a simple, delicious country wine from the Nebbiolo grape (which, in its most noble form, makes Barolo and Barbaresco). Ruby in color, it jumps with bright, lively fruit. Perfect for spring and summer's lighter menus, and always a great match with a platter of salumeria: Think prosciutto, coppa, salami. * Quick swirl Region: Piedmont. Price: About $12. Style: Bright and lively. Food it goes with: Salami and prosciutto, rustic soups and pastas, grilled and roasted meats.

An Iranian parliamentary committee has called for direct talks with the country's arch foe, the United States, to seek cooperation on setting up a new Afghan government, a member of parliament said.

West Germans who thought they were eating an exceptionally good salami-type sausage have been shocked to learn that the meat was kangaroo. A butcher was fined the equivalent of $25,000 here Wednesday after officials uncovered a five-year-old fraud involving sausages that contained meat ranging from kangaroo to horse and elk. Five other butchers are currently serving jail terms.

Sure, the inhabitants of Biosphere 2 ate a high-fiber, low-fat and mostly vegetarian diet while safely ensconced in their lovely domed world. But what did they really want after two years of enforced isolation and health food? Chocolate, caviar, Genoa salami, lots of fancy cheese, pate, peanut butter . . . and on everyone's wish list, gourmet coffee.

Two Italian meats, rich and smoky bacon-like pancetta and dry salami, team up with garlic, onions, fresh tomatoes and chard in a delightful sauce for pasta. If pancetta is not available in the deli section of the supermarket, bacon can be substituted. Also pancetta may be purchased at an Italian market.

When there's a lot of cooking going on, you can probably use a little help getting rid of kitchen odors. The new True Air Plug-Mount Air Cleaner from Hamilton Beach plugs into the wall and has a carbon filter to eliminate odors as a fan pulls them in. It works especially well in small kitchens. * True Air Plug-Mount Air Cleaner, $35 from Macy's. Prosciutto-Flavored Salami Citterio is well known for Italian-style cured meats such as sopressata and mortadella.

In the not-too-distant past, the best dinner spot in Healdsburg was a red-sauce Italian joint next to the highway, and the only option for picnic goodies was the Salami Tree Deli. But then Napa got crowded, Sonoma wine developed street cred and a slew of boutique hotels opened up around the town square. And Healdsburg became seriously about food. So serious that the tamale truck at the Saturday farmers market features chef-butchered meat. So serious that the town is home to at least four destination restaurants, including one where the cooking is equal parts science fair and Cordon Bleu.

LIKE desert wildflowers after a rain, a thousand charcuterie plates have bloomed this summer. A few crimson hunks of pungent dried salame, a pale slice of unctuous mortadella -- here a silky prosciutto, there a rustic jamon, everywhere some smoky speck. Who could have predicted it? Southern California, where even great restaurants need to have a big green salad on the menu, has suddenly gone crazy for pork fat.

For a long time, Los Angeles chefs had the city to themselves. Outsiders might have turned up for a guest chef turn or two, but never much more than that. But then a couple of years ago that all changed, and Los Angeles was suddenly as attractive as Las Vegas to restaurateurs with satellite restaurants to shop. Fancy that. And now, following Thomas Keller ( Bouchon ), Tom Colicchio ( Craft ), Laurent Tourondel ( BLT Steak ), and José Andrés ( Bazaar ), to name a few, comes Scott Conant with Scarpetta , the fourth iteration of his high-end Italian restaurant in New York's meatpacking district.
