Food writer Ruth Reichl's cookbook My Kitchen Year: 136 Recipes That Saved My Life takes readers on a culinary roller coaster, from the lowbrow world of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches (mmmm, heated), into the heavens of creamed lobster claws on toasted brioche. It's an emotional as well as culinary trip. She brings her book Tuesday to the Free Library. The former New York Times restaurant critic and editor of Gourmet magazine said writing the cookbook was comfort food, literally and emotionally.

HER FAMILY called Arlene Beverly a "force to be reckoned with. " That was because Arlene, from childhood, "had definite opinions and specific requirements for the way things should be done," her family said. "Somehow she often prevailed in making others see things from her perspective. " It seemed that everything Arlene did, she did it the best it could be done, from music and ballet to gourmet cooking to her professions as a dedicated social worker, court officer and occupational trainer.

When La Colombe first opened 21 years ago, co-owner Todd Carmichael was puzzled by customers who would order iced coffee . But, with a disdainful shrug, he'd serve them a red-eye over ice. Slowly, though, his outlook changed - to the point where he now believes his newest creation, cold latte by the can, may be his greatest accomplishment. "I'm more proud of this than everything else combined," said Carmichael, who has opened 12 caf├ęs, starred in a Travel Channel docu-series, and helped revive the Haitian coffee industry.

The truck: If you're a motorcyclist - or just a red-blooded American - you'll appreciate the look of M.A.T.T.'s Gourmet Sliders, a/k/a Matt's Food Truck. All black with chrome fenders, whitewall tires and a Harley-Davidson-style logo. We weren't even looking for a place to eat, but this truck caught our attention a couple of weeks ago at 33rd and Market streets. Turns out, it was only its second day on the road. The concept: Can't go wrong with sliders. Why have one big sandwich when you can get three different ones?

THANKS TO this past fall's widely debated independence vote, as well as poppy entry points like the hit Starz series "Outlander," talk of Scotland has been rolling off plenty of American tongues in recent months. And it's never long before the talk turns to food. Scotland's reputation in this department stinks. It's battered and deep-fried candy bars, at its most flattering; the dreaded haggis, at its least. Such characterizations, of course, are more cockamamie than cock-a-leekie soup without the prunes.

SO: January 23 - too soon to call 2014 "the year of the vegan"? Not if you're New York Magazine , which noted last week that "news outlets on both sides of the Atlantic" have already declared it. And who am I to argue? Veganism is seeping into everyday life through so many channels, it's hard to keep track of the milestones. Two buzzed-about veganizations recently seen on Delaware Valley grocery shelves range from a jar of plain mayo to a line of artisan soft gourmet cheeses.

In 1993, when Max Hansen opened a gourmet market in Buckingham, some customers just didn't get it. They weren't familiar with the concept, and they balked at the prices. But in the 20 years since, appetites have changed. In May, Hansen took over the old Carversville General Store, a long-standing but unambitious mainstay with a post office, and transformed it into the Max Hansen Carversville Grocery. He added a cafe, organic foods, local groceries, prepared foods, and occasional chef's dinners.

Her love of family and friends endeared her to a wide range of people. In fact, when she died Oct. 30 of complications from pneumonia, there was widespread grief.

What to eat : You really can't go wrong with any choice on the "Korean with a twist" menu, which is why Ka'Chi is one of this Truck Stop reviewer's favorite spots in the city. The details: The spicy pulled-pork sliders with pickled cucumbers (two for $7) hit the spot, but Ka'Chi also sells lots of Bulgogi (beef) and soy-ginger chicken tacos (one for $3 or three for $8) and rice bowls ($8), made with red cabbage and vinaigrette slaw. Get a side of cheese fries with house-made kimchi ($4)
