hAnd now, vinegar
The winery Sutter Home is extending its presence into the vinegar aisle. We liked the flavor of all five varieties of its new wine vinegars: white zinfandel, Champagne, chardonnay, cabernet sauvignon-balsamic and merlot. They'll add spark to salad dressings, marinades and other dishes. The attractive packaging is another plus. Each 375-milliliter bottle costs about $4 at supermarkets.

Vegans dine with considerably more restrictions than other vegetarians because they omit any animal-derivative food -- that means no milk, cheese or eggs. "The Mediterranean Vegan Kitchen" (Berkeley Publishing, $17.95), by Donna Klein, will spice up the menu with more than 300 dishes. It is available at some Borders bookstores, www.barnesandnoble.com and www.amazon.com.
