The wine sheets down the sides of the glass, a lush crimson-purple with a head of raspberry foam. It's Lambrusco, the fizzy red wine from Emilia-Romagna that most serious wine drinkers wouldn't go near. The surprise is how delicious this one from Barbolini is, a mouthful of bright fruit and earth.

A few years ago, my husband and I decided to renew a Brady family tradition. As a child, Brian always celebrated the Fourth of July at Lacy Park in San Marino with his family. It is a big, beautiful park where it's easy to spend the day without getting bored. One catch: No grilling allowed. What to bring? I pack this substantial sandwich that goes a long way on a long day. It's one of those sandwiches that actually gets better as it sits.

A Canadian meat processor is voluntarily recalling about 400 pounds of sliced salami and ham from stores in the Western U.S. because the meats may be contaminated with a disease-causing bacteria, the U.S. government said. A statement from the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service said the luncheon meats had been distributed to companies in Seattle, Houston, the San Francisco Bay area and the Portland, Ore., area.

If you like big sandwiches, try the Godfather at Papa Don's Delicatessen. The long bun is stacked with mortadella, capicolla, genoa salami, bologna, ham, Swiss and provolone cheeses, plus lettuce, tomato, chopped red onion and pepperoncinis. While you wait for the sandwich to be assembled, look around at the automobile memorabilia mounted on the walls. Among the photos and ads is a shot of the Pasadena Freeway when it was still a brush-filled arroyo. The Godfather sandwich, $4.

Bosnian food? Bosnia has been in the news for years, but its cuisine is something most of us have never known. The closest we came was in the 1980s, when there were a fair number of Yugoslav restaurants around town and one of them announced it was going to add a Bosnian room. At the time I assumed it would serve the same dishes as the rest of the house (shish kebabs, stuffed vegetables, strudel-like pastries), only in a room with a more Turkish decor, since most Bosnians are Muslims.

It's Ferrari red and gleaming, but it's not what you'd think. "Some people buy exotic cars. I buy a meat slicer," chef Hans Rockenwagner says of his newest acquisition, which stands waist-high, weighs 500 pounds and is the centerpiece of his newly remodeled Santa Monica restaurant, Rockenwagner Restaurant & Brasserie. Rockenwagner uses the machine to slice smoky Black Forest ham, prosciutto and salami. The prewar meat slicer's workings are all mechanical.
