Latkes and sufganiyot, the jelly-filled doughnuts especially popular in Israel, are well-known Chanukah fare made with oil to signify the holiday tale.

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.

Shakers rattle and a renowned writer and a duchess of dance roil the artistic waters in a new movement/theater piece that expresses an abundance about the repressed Shaker sect that settled in New Hampshire in the late 1700s under its gatekeeper/guardian Mother Ann Lee.
