WHAT COLOR is mad-cow disease on the Homeland Security alert system? The newly discovered case of bovine spongiform encephalopathy in Washington state is not the reason Tom Ridge issued last week's "orange" warning. But the threat of BSE is worth taking seriously, maybe even more so than threats from outside terrorists. When it comes to preventing food-related illness, the enemy may be us. The mad-cow outbreak that led to the deaths of 153 humans, and the slaughter of hundreds of thousands of cattle in Europe has its roots, most speculate, in the diseased sheep that were being fed to livestock cattle.

Beef? It's what's not for dinner, at least in its traditional "and- potatoes" form. Pork, the other white meat? Get that chop outtahere. Iceberg lettuce? Its appeal is melting away. But arugula? A-OK. Kiwi's catching on, shiitakes are shooting off the shelves, and crowds are milling in front of the gourmet shelves at Copps grocery in Appleton, Wis., a town more middle-American than which you cannot get. So saith the Wall Street Journal in an article that contends Americans who've never had a whiff of Walnut Street are now cooking more like Georges Perrier than Betty Crocker.

WHAT DO YOU get the carnivore on your list who has everything? Why, meat, of course. Even beyond kitchen gimcracks and gadgets, the ideal gift for the friend or loved one who loves great food is an experience - something he or she can touch, taste, feel, smell. Typically, this person dines out often, making a restaurant gift-certificate one step away from ho-hum. But he appreciates a good cut of meat and may be an expert grillmaster at home, quick to sear up inch-thick Delmonicos on his 154,000 B.T.U.

When people shop for beef, they usually do it at a favorite supermarket or meat store, and tend to think the meat came from that particular store. But not too far in the future, beef will be sold as a brand item much as chicken and pork products are today. Rod Bowling, vice president of Monfort of Colorado Inc., said brand beef will change the way packers buy beef from producers and the way grocery stores market the product. Jim Gryzmala of Monfort said his company is conducting research for some supermarkets on brandname beef and also precooked beef.

YO, CHEFS! I would like to know how Harmony Vegetarian Restaurant in Chinatown makes its orange beef. Helen T. Diehl Philadelphia Dear Helen, Peter Fong, the former chef at Harmony, is now the manager of Singapore Kosher Vegetarian Restaurant, also in Chinatown. He gave us this version of orange "beef," which is a popular dish at both places. Fong makes all his "meat," "poultry" and "seafood" dishes from tempeh, or soy gluten, a protein substitute that is available at most Asian markets and health-food stores.

RE "KOBE: NO love in the 2-1-5": As much as Kobe Bryant would love to be embraced by MY hometown of Philly, he needs to realize that it just ain't gonna happen. Philadelphia loves the rest of our hometown professional athletes who represent that blue-collar Philly spirit, like Rasheed Wallace, Aaron McKie, Cuttino Mobley, and Rip Hamilton (even though he's officially from Coatesville). So what is it about Phonie Bryant that makes him draw boos here unlike any boos ever uttered for Santa Claus or Destiny's Child?

My daddy told me once, "Son, never throw a necktie away!" That was Daddy's way of sayin' "what goes around, comes around," or "everything old will one day be new again. " Daddy was right! Seems he always was, especially when it came to meat. After all the bad rap, meat, particularly beef, has gotten in recent years, it seems "according to recent surveys" to be making a comeback. A survey conducted in January and June of 1987 by Walker Research Inc. showed "an increase in consumers' positive perception of beef during that period.

I'm not as sure today as I was yesterday about what I knew for sure was true the day before. It's a bit unsettling. For years, I have believed that more people are disappointed with the beef they buy today because it hasn't been properly aged than for any other single reason. Well, last week we had a taste test. It's a bit unsettling. Albert Levie, president of Gulliver's Restaurants and one of this nation's foremost meat authorities, organized a taste test at his southern California restaurant in Marina del Rey to try to determine the effect of "dry" vs. "wet" aging on the palatability of beef steaks.

Beef used to come to market in carcass form, with the bones still in. Yeah, it did. I know it's hard to believe. You seldom see a bone these days but that's the way beef used to come. All of the cutting was done on the premises by the butcher or butchers on duty and the cuts of beef were pretty basic, most often identified by the shape of the bone that was in them. You had, for example, your basic T-bone steak, then there was the sirloin steak which was either "round bone sirloin," or "flat bone sirloin" or "wedge bone sirloin," depending on the shape of the bone.

JOHN M. Kaufmann, who wrote that he couldn't find any conservative-slanted books on display at a major local bookstore, raises a valid point. While I'm a staunch Kerry supporter, having the ability to purchase material concerning the other side of the political coin should never be made difficult. Removing Bush from office is critical, but it doesn't trump the right of American voters to have access to any and all viewpoints that help them form a decision. Tom Speyer, Philadelphia

The report crackled over Lt. Russell Moody Jr.'s handheld police radio: Armed males had just committed a home-invasion robbery mere blocks from Temple University's main campus. Moody rushed in an unmarked police SUV to the crime scene: a house near 17th and Diamond Streets where, it turned out, five female Temple students lived. One of the university's worst fears - students being the victims of violent crimes - yielded on a recent weekend to a story of personal betrayal. What really happened was a burglary - set up, allegedly, by a best friend of one of the housemates.

The cornerstone of the Union's strategy, owner Jay Sugarman said, is to internally develop their talent instead of buying it on the market. That strategy was strengthened Friday as the team announced the hiring of Rene Meulensteen as a consultant. Meulensteen, 50, will advise the Union on all soccer operations. The Dutchman spent 12 years with Manchester United and was most recently the manager of English club Fulham. He spent five years as an academy coach for United and will bring his experience with player development to the Union.

The Philadelphia Historical Commission could get more than double the amount of money it currently receives in exchange for a beefed-up local registry of historic places. City Councilman James Kenney introduced two bills Thursday: One would transfer $500,000 to the commission, the other would add at least 1,000 properties to the city's register of historic places. There are thousands of Philadelphia properties on the National Register of Historic Places that are not on the local register.

MIKE LeCOMPT, a Holmesburg native son who has been rocking since his Father Judge High School years, is such a legend at Northeast Philly and down-the-Shore pubs that he'll get his first breather on Wednesday after working 74 nights in a row. His long, hair-band locks, which flowed over his shoulders when he was lead singer for Tangier on their 1991 hit, "Stranded," is pulled back now into a Samurai-style ponytail. His open-to-the-navel shirts have given way to tees, and he wears his jeans looser these days.

PHILADELPHIA is the "birthplace of America" - and of veganism in the United States! Hyperbole? Nope. The American Vegan Society, founded in 1960 by H. Jay Dinshah, in Malaga, N.J., is at the root of nearly every major development in the spread of vegan living on this continent. And Dinshah was standing at the corner of Front and Venango streets when he decided to go vegan. A new book edited by Jay's daughter, Anne Dinshah, Powerful Vegan Messages: Out of the Jungle for the Next Generation , has the story: That corner was the location of the Cross Brothers slaughterhouse, which Jay and his brother Nosheran toured in 1957 to settle an argument about whether their vegetarianism was truly ethical.

DEMOCRATIC and Republican committee people who won posts in the primary election 17 days ago will soon elect ward leaders, but a few protesters want to call a halt until their complaints are investigated. The aggrieved spoke of primary polling-place harassment and electioneering during a hearing yesterday called by City Commissioner Stephanie Singer . This Airing of Grievances - sadly, with no Seinfeldian feats of strength or Festivus pole - stirred a dozen people to march from the City Hall courtroom, where Singer sat as judge, to District Attorney Seth Williams ' office across the street.

The public relations tour of Temple president Neil D. Theobald, which has been a train wreck in the last four months as the school clumsily dismantled some of its core varsity sports programs, took another wide turn last week when Theobald essentially accused the Eagles of extortion during lease negotiations between the school and its football stadium landlord. "They clearly believe we do not have a viable option," Theobald told the Chronicle for Higher Education on Wednesday, when he dropped a story that claimed the Eagles are demanding a doubling of the current rent and what amounts to a $12 million signing bonus for a lease extension that would take effect in 2018.

Irish heritage is not required to enjoy a great, easy, St. Patrick's Day-inspired meal. My mid-March tradition of planting peas outside while a corned beef brisket and cabbage simmer away on the stove may come simply from living in East Coast cities with Irish-American friends and neighbors. This cold, dreary spring may not allow for outdoor planting on St. Patrick's Day, but you can be sure we'll be eating corned beef. Corned beef is not only delicious, it is extremely easy to prepare at home.

At the Olympic break, Flyers coach Craig Berube said he wanted his team to focus on defense and disciplined play for the rest of the season. The Flyers have struggled in both areas since the break ended, but you can't argue with the bottom line: three wins in four games, giving them seven victories in their last eight contests. In Wednesday's fight-filled, 6-4 win over Washington, the Flyers gave the Capitals a chance at a comeback. The Caps got three power plays in the second half of the game and scored on all three.
