Tasty English food has gone from an oxymoron to a driving culinary trend in this country, thanks to chefs such as April Bloomfield of New York's Spotted Pig. Once-stuffy dishes rooted in British history are suddenly hip, made with a lighter hand and quality, seasonal ingredients. In Philadelphia, British mania can be found in gastropubs such as Pub & Kitchen and the across-the-pond-themed eatery the Dandelion, but also through subtle menu touches. Marc Vetri put rarebit on the menu at his new pub, Alla Spina, though it's made Italian style, with sunny-side-up egg and applewood smoked bacon.

JACK BROWN, a retired truck driver who so loved Phillies baseball games that he turned off the volume on his TV to call his own plays, died Monday after a long battle with heart and lung disease. He was 72 and lived in North Cape May, N.J. "Jack was more than just a fan of baseball and the Phillies," said his wife, Maureen Dougherty Brown. "He had an incredible grasp of the game, and understood all the aspects and nuances that make baseball such a compelling sport. " While sitting in the sunshine at Citizens Bank Park or in his living-room recliner, Jack's calls were always on point.

One key ingredient makes every dish profiled in "America's Best Lost Recipes" special: the family story behind it. Here are some recipes and their stories. Laura Fischer, of Chicago, had this to say about her grandfather's recipe: "Grandpa Cooley didn't like kids - not even his own grandkids. Or so it seemed. He was gruff at best, mean at worse, smoked two packs a day, and owned a cherished rack of hunting rifles that towered over my grandparents' basement. But Grandpa Cooley had a side I loved - he could cook.

Pre-Atlantic City Expressway, in the midst of sweltering, non-air-conditioned summers, many black families in Philadelphia piled into their Buicks and Oldsmobiles and motored down the Black Horse or White Horse Pike for a day on the beach in Atlantic City. Food, bathing suits, towels, blankets, and buckets and shovels were stacked in the car trunk or in the backseat. These trips were family affairs. They included aunts, uncles, cousins, and people who were like family - play-aunts, play-uncles and play-cousins.

"I'm cooking dinner when I get home!" Teddy announces to everyone he sees, and then he invites them to come home and eat. His foster mother has laughter in her voice as she tells this story and adds that deviled eggs are the only thing he can actually fix. He does want to learn to cook, and his favorite foods are cheese pizza, spaghetti, chips, and hot dogs with ketchup. Church is a joy for Teddy, 7, and he likes singing "Jesus Loves Me" and attending Sunday school. He enjoys riding a bike in the park and going on the swings and slides, bouncing a basketball and watching the game on television, and playing with video games and toy trucks.

When I am asked to describe "fusion cooking," I lean toward an explanation that has a specific meaning for me. Fusion cooking is food that I grew up eating. Two totally different cultures, Japanese and African American, became a union when my mother married my father - and so did the food in our home. Of course, many meals that we ate retained the elements of each cuisine but, at times, the dishes borrowed parts from each other to develop a language of their own. Having a Japanese mother and living in Asia for 17 years gave me an opportunity to be a participant in that culture.

Sure as bluebonnets bloom each spring, Easter heralds a hard-cooked egg bonanza. And the inevitable quandary: what to do with all those decorated orbs once the Easter egg hunt is over. If you've had them out of the refrigerator for more than two hours, the U.S. Department of Agriculture advises throwing them away because of the risk of food-borne illness. Eggs used in a long Easter egg hunt, for example, or those that are allowed to cool in their cooking water, then are dyed, would be highly suspect.

Genevieve McLaughlin is a slight, white-haired grandmother who feeds birds and squirrels in her back yard, offers occasional refuge to a homeless man she knows only as Charles and, every night of the week, hosts a houseful of children, grandchildren and their friends. "We have a tradition of giving. I grew up with it," she said. And so, when McLaughlin decided to retire after 18 1/2 years with Independence Blue Cross, she asked that the company forgo a traditional retirement luncheon - a $1,200 affair - and give the money to charity.
