  Total time: 1½ hours, plus proofing and rising times Servings: 8 Note: Adapted from a recipe in "Salad Daze" by Hot Knives bloggers Alex Brown and Evan George. They write: "Nothing satiates the sentient like the gooey, almost raw central mass of a freshly baked sweet roll. As true seekers of new ways to sedate each other with homebaked carbs, we flipped the Cinnabon on its noggin' one New Year's Day and whipped up what has become our favorite recipe for savory rolls.

Irish actor Barry McGovern is once again gracing our shores with his Beckettian virtuosity. In 2012, he and Alan Mandell starred in a luminous revival of "Waiting for Godot" at the Mark Taper Forum. Now he's at the Kirk Douglas Theatre performing "I'll Go On," his solo show composed of selections of Samuel Beckett's trilogy of novels, "Molloy," "Malone Dies" and "The Unnamable. " McGovern has all the qualities of a superb Beckett interpreter. He relishes the comic brio even at its most scatological and possesses a voice that can draw out all the various hues of the verbal brilliance.

The Christmas feast doesn't have to include ham and candied yams - at least not on the Las Vegas Strip, where nearly every restaurant will be open Dec. 25.  Many will be dishing up special palate pleasers on Christmas. Here's a sampling of seven that await diners. Eggs Benedict will be among the multitude of dishes for Christmas brunch at the Buffet at Wynn . Six varieties of the dish will be offered. Artichoke and black truffle soup , served with toasted mushroom brioche and black truffle butter, will be just one of nine courses at Restaurant Guy Savoy at Caesars Palace . The Christmas Prestige dinner costs $375 per person.

Savory pies are the culinary equivalent of a down quilt: warm, cushy, uncomplicated -- and precisely what I want to tuck into once winter has settled in and I've found myself safely on the other side of the high-stakes holiday cooking gantlet. After all, December may be a monthlong orgy of creamy pumpkin and candied pecan, rare roast beef and chestnuts, and Champagne and oysters to toast the new year -- but January and its resolutions seem to demand simplicity and thrift. Thrifty needn't mean dull or meager, however, and savory pies -- with their combination of tender, salted crust and hearty filling so elementally formal, yet endlessly varied -- fit the bill perfectly.

The unnamed president in "Haute Cuisine," an ode to traditional French cuisine and professional pride, summons a self-taught culinary expert from the provinces to be his personal chef at the Élysée Palace. "Give me the best of France," he tells her. Cue the truffles. Food porn is not the raison d'être of Christian Vincent's feature, but there's no shortage of loving close-ups of savories and sweets, and such phrases as "chanterelle fricassee" are uttered with profound regard. Hoo-hahs over oysters and homemade cream cheese are presented as momentous.

If you are in South Gate, and you have commanded a table at Tacos DF, you are probably here for the Mexico City -style antojitos , which is to say the broad huaraches piled high with chicken, the quesadillas stuffed with squash blossoms and melted cheese, or the saucer-size sopes stained black with musky huitlacoche . If you are a fan of pambazos , the soaked and griddle-crisped sandwiches that are what the devil's mother-in-law...

The Dec. 19 article by Margaret Knox that described Allan Savory's Holistic Resource Management (HRM) program as a panacea for the many environmental impacts created by the livestock industry in the West failed to provide a balanced perspective about both HRM, as well as the real issues surrounding the controversy about livestock production in the West. Briefly, Savory claims that our rangelands are in a degraded state not because there are too many cattle, but too few. The solution, Savory asserts, is to graze more animals, but move them rapidly from pasture to pasture.

Many of your readers, no doubt, will say they are saddened by the demise of the San Diego edition of The Los Angeles Times. I, on the other hand, am stunned. For 14 years, my mornings have centered around The Times--even more so than around a cup of coffee, which is saying a lot. Indeed, if I am out of coffee, I can always have a cup of tea, and that is a palatable substitute. If I am out of my Times, however, all other alternatives, alas, are less than savory. WENDY J.

Mendocino gets most of the ink when the virtues of quaint, oceanside Northern California villages are written up, but Fort Bragg, its more working-class neighbor to the north, is no slouch when it comes to charms. My sweetheart and I spent a few days here last winter and could have filled a few guidebook chapters with all the good goings-on. Tallied up, we spent about $650, which included $340 for two nights at the North Cliff Hotel, just listed on TripAdvisor as a 2013 Travelers' Choice for Romance.

  For anyone who loves a leaner, more elegant style of Chardonnay, this is the one. Liquid Farm proprietors Nikki and Jeff Nelson are going for Chardonnay with less oak influence and lower alcohol. Bingo. That's a recipe for a food-friendly wine, and with the help of winemakers Brandon Sparks-Gillis and John Dragonette of Dragonette Cellars, they're making this terrific Chardonnay from Santa Rita Hills grapes. I love its minerality, the sharp, fresh scent of citrus and, well, grape that comes through loud and clear.

Every year, my husband and I make the trek from L.A. to Phoenix. It's a long trip, and we're always on the lookout for something to break up the trip. This year we found an absolute gem of a restaurant: Dish Creative Cuisine, in a nondescript strip mall in Cathedral City. Nevertheless, the service is fine dining, with white linen tablecloths and an attentive staff. Amuse-bouche is the star of the show. Throughout our dinner, including appetizers, entrees and desserts, our waiters continually brought these little masterpieces to our table.

In the TV food show arena, bacon is the new black. California chef Todd Fisher, an unapologetic bacon buff, has declared that bacon has moved off the breakfast table and on to the unlikeliest of places: in cocktails, desserts and more traditional entrees like pizza. The growing variety of outrageous bacon creations in restaurants around the country in recent years has landed him in hog heaven. Now Fisher will get a chance to indulge his love for all things bacon in "The United States of Bacon," a new series on Discovery's Destination America that airs on Sundays and debuted this week.
