Like so many Yiddish words, schmaltz has mixed connotations - it can be used to describe something fine and expensive or something corny and over-the-top sentimental. But for many cooks, its true meaning lies on the palate. "If you don't use schmaltz, your food will be flavorless," says Russ Farer, general manager at Schlesinger's Deli in Center City. "It's that simple. " Schmaltz, of course, is the rendered fat of chicken (or goose) that European Jews adopted for kosher cookery in place of butter when tallow from beef proved prohibitively expensive.

Here is an excerpt from Craig LaBan's online chat of April 9, 2013: Craig LaBan: Lots of good things to discuss. Like these alfajores from the Argentine-influenced cafe called Gavin's, on Pine Street right next to the Schuylkill River park . . . spending a lot of time in the park lately, 'cause my son is doing Little League. I hadn't planned on these gorgeous alfajores - cookie sandwiches rolled in coconut and stuffed with dulce de leche. One of my favorite treats in town.

THERE IS A LOT TO ADORE - or at least to ogle - at the Wing Bowl. There are local celebs, namely, 94WIP's Angelo Cataldi and Al Morganti, co-creators of the 21-year-old extravaganza, and Rhea Hughes, who keeps the guys in line. There are an estimated 20,000 spectators - rowdy, predominantly male carousers who pay 10 bucks each to get their Super Bowl party started early (very early) Friday, like way before 6 a.m. There are Wingettes, a scantily clad, buxom battalion that is part cheerleaders, part servers, part centerfolds.

If it hasn't already happened to you, get ready. Even five minutes of casual news watching will alert you: This is the worst cold and flu season in recent memory. The sneezing that punctuates an unusually thick fatigue was my first clue that I was among the ill. Actually, my already-infected husband, sick a full week before I was, foretold the cold. Before I succumbed to the worst of it, something had to be done. I needed to make a lot of chicken soup for some serious symptom relief.

Marianne Gere and Kim Strengari, from West Conshohocken's Stella Blu and Gypsy Saloon , have crossed the Schuylkill to open Southern Cross Kitchen , a restaurant-bar on the former site of 8 East at 8 E. First Ave. in Conshohocken (484-344-5668). The cross does not refer to the Fayette Street bridge or to the constellation; rather, the cuisine is a cross between down-home Southern classics and modern comfort food (jambalaya, fried buttermilk chicken, smothered pork chop, etc.)

What to eat: Halal (food that meets Islamic dietary laws) chicken, lamb, falafel or tilapia platters with rice, lettuce, tomato and onion are $5 - soda or water included! Sizable portions, too. Sandwiches and a drink are $4. Go with the creamy white sauce or the hot sauce, or both. Eat for less after you "dress for less" at the Ross store nearby. Don't miss: Halal chicken platters are popular for a reason: They're consistently good. Tender - not greasy or fatty - morsels of chicken with a shot of hot sauce make the perfect quick lunch.

  YOU MIGHT THINK memories of home cooking are the foundation for a Top Cook. Bardre Parrish, of the Yorktown section, recalls his mother's nose for a good meal. "My mom would always take me to the food hall at Strawbridge's [the former department store at 8th and Market], and it gave me a great appreciation for good food," Parrish said recently. "The barbecue chicken I had there definitely inspired me. I treasure the memory. " Parrish's other inspiration was his sixth-grade home-economics teacher, "Miss Gary," at Conwell Russell Middle School, who taught him to make gravy and pepper steak.
