Dining With Duvall By Lynn Duvall The first book I received as a gift arrived on my tenth birthday, five days before Christmas. Aunt Honor sent me Betty Crocker's "Cookbook for Boys and Girls." I still use recipes from it. Cookbooks last a lifetime and may be handed down to succeeding generations. Betty Crocker's children's cookbook has a new home on my youngest child's kitchen shelf. She made her first cake with a recipe from the book when she was 10. If you're running short on holiday gift ideas, consider a cookbook.

Class was over and we were about to leave the Community Center when Lori Schnieder, a student of my mind and body fitness class, presented a large basket of beautiful, fresh picked plums. Hot and thirsty, we each bit into one as we walked to our cars, reminiscing about the tastes of summer. Grilled corn on the cob, tomato sandwiches, zucchini, a sun ripened watermelon, apricots ? we went on and on about our favorites. You know it?s summer when you?ve been refreshed with fresh organic delights of the season.

The National Pork Board has dubbed Hernando De Soto "the father of the American Pork Industry." De Soto landed in Tampa Bay, Fla. with 13 pigs in 1539. Three years later, the pork population had grown to a herd of 700. Cortez brought hogs to New Mexico in 1600 and Sir Walter Raleigh sailed sows into Jamestown Colony in 1607. Some of the early American porcine settlers ran away from their owners and established their own colonies, foraging on the land. Dutch settlers on Manhattan island had to build a wall to protect themselves against herds of marauding feral pigs, descendants of the first hog colonists.

Dining with Duvall By Lynn Duvall On New Year's Eve I cooked an ambitious dinner for my friends Judie and Pepe. When we finished, I asked them to be food critics and rate the meal. The overall dinner rated a B-plus. Bob, Judie and Pepe also graded each dish separately. You may recall that I mentioned I would be trying a crimini mushroom-mashed potato recipe on Christmas Day. I'd highly recommended a book which presented the side dish as part of a Christmas Day menu.

Lynn Duvall When Bistro Verdu opened its doors in Montrose almost four years ago, the Spanish and French-influenced restaurant had no liquor license. Customers brought their own wine until the owner-chef Michael Ruiz's application for a license was approved. Faced with the task of designing a good wine list, he enlisted the help of wine consultant Jeff Zimmitti. Today the two men are neighbors on Verdugo Road. At Bistro Verdu, Michael continues to build a loyal customer base.

Lynn Duvall Cinco de Mayo commemorates the date of May 5, 1862, when Mexican armies fought a decisive battle against the French in the city of Puebla. After the Mexican-American War, a new constitution and government brought democracy to Mexico. Large landowners, frightened of losing their land, invited Spain, England and France to help them maintain power. Mexico had borrowed heavily from those nations to finance the Mexican-American War; the creditors came to Mexico to collect their debts.
