If you want to understand Bestia, you should probably take a look at the cassoeula , a version of a traditional cabbage stew popular in Milan. At Alfredo de Gran San Bernardo, the Milanese businessmen's restaurant where I first tried the dish, cassoeula was delicious but austere, a sort of cabbagey pot-au-feu whose highlight was a slippery scrap of boiled pig's forehead.

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.

Most members of a premier candy family favor a flight to Mars, one refuses in the belief that aliens are evil and some people say the fuss is a lot of salami. At stake is the future of the Tonnema company, whose peppermints and roll candies have put smiles on the faces of sticky-handed Dutch children since 1903. The question is whether one of this northern town's prized industries will be sold to Mars Inc. and become part of the $12-billion U.S.
