The festive holiday of Chanukah lasts eight days -- even here in Israel, where some of the holidays are short a day. And it's a good thing, too, for we have eight days in which to light candles every night and show thanks for the Jews' miraculous victory over the Greeks.

On a recent trip to Rome, I witnessed something I'd never seen before. A waiter spun hot capellini inside a wheel of pecorino romano cheese, coating each strand. Turning the capellini onto a plate, he finished it with plenty of freshly ground black pepper.

When it's cold and wet outside, the next best thing to savoring a home-cooked meal is curling up in an armchair and reading about one. This year's crop of cookbooks covers a wide spectrum of topics and is filled with gems worth reading and referring to again and again.
