This week's Culinary SOS request comes from Ruth L. Brown in Los Angeles: "A while ago, on a visit to Cleveland, our son took us to eat and drink at the Market Garden Brewery. I believe it is near the interesting Garden Market on the near west side of Cleveland. I ordered the sweet potato pie. It was out of this world! I was glad I had eaten lightly before devouring it. " This is no ordinary sweet potato pie. Creamy mashed sweet potatoes are lightly spiced with nutmeg, cinnamon and vanilla paste, and sweetened with a touch of honey, sugar and Muscavado brown sugar - a rich, dark, unfiltered brown sugar - for a wonderful medley of flavors.

It's difficult to know whether to think of Mike Baker as a surfing chef or as a chef who surfs. In either case, he doesn't look the part. Well beyond six feet and with the build of a defensive lineman, Baker, the chef at Buffalo Ranch restaurant in Mission Viejo, looks as if he couldn't be supported in the water by a surfboard any smaller than a barge and has none of the fussy, precision manner of the mythical temperamental chef.

Every year before Thanksgiving Day, the ovens at the 27th Street Bakery Shop in South-Central Los Angeles are roaring 'round the clock in a frantic effort to keep up with a flood of orders. It's a busy time of the year for all bakeries, but especially so for one specializing for 60 years in a tasty Southern delicacy: fresh-baked sweet potato pies.

Some folks refer to Rosie Cooper's Southern cuisine as soul food, but she just calls it home cooking. The barbecued ribs and fried catfish, peach cobbler and sweet potato pie that Cooper serves at her Monrovia restaurant, Rosie's Kitchen (no relation to the low-fat guru named Rosie who presides over Oprah's kitchen), are the staples of her childhood. "To me and so many other people it's not soul food. It's every day food," she said. "It's what we were raised on.

When people wax eloquent about the gustatory glories of one brand or another of pumpkin pie, Gregory Spann thinks it's just because they have never had a chance to sample the product his company has been turning out for the past half a century. But he doesn't make pumpkin pies. And doesn't want to. Since its founding 56 years ago by master baker Harry L.

Time after time this holiday season, I reached for the phone on the kitchen counter to call my mother-in-law in Ohio. Then I remembered, I'm on my own now making family favorites. For years, her special holiday dishes grounded our family traditions. It's just not Thanksgiving without Rene's dressing, Christmas without her sweet potato pie, New Year's Day without her black-eyed peas. Rene's death last winter left a hole in our lives . I could will myself not to think about her absence, until I sat at the kitchen table pawing through piles of old recipes, searching for some written link to her culinary legacy.

Soul food and Cajun/Creole cuisine are close relatives, separated by just a handful of dishes on the N'Awlins side -- jambalaya, gumbo, etouffee, beignets and crawfish. So when the Glutton wants to sate her Yankee palate with a dash of Big Easy flavor, those are her dishes of choice. Louisiana transplants and those lucky enough to remember Stevie's on the Strip will appreciate restaurateur Steven Perry's Encino venture, Stevie's Creole Cafe & Bar.

In a discovery that could save lives, scientists at the U.S. Department of Agriculture have developed a technique to rapidly detect a deadly strain of salmonella bacteria, the government said Wednesday. The strain of salmonella, DT104, is especially dangerous because it is resistant to many antibiotics. Government researchers were able to find the strain's gene sequence, allowing scientists to quickly identify the bacterium.

Saturating fruit in sugar (or more precisely sugar syrup) is an old-fashioned way to preserve it. The process can take several days. In France, the best fruit glacees maintain the fruit's original shapes and colors and are very expensive. The French often use needles to pierce the skin and pump sugar into the soon-to-be-delicacy. In Mexico, camote (sweet potato) and calabaza (pumpkin) are cooked over several days in sugar syrups to make a traditional confection.
