She started at 6:30 Friday morning in the kitchen of St. Luke's Church in Devon and will work until midnight every night of the show.

You can obviously take Shank's out of the Italian Market - though the cramped new Center City edition of this luncheonette will never have the old neighborhood feeling of the Carpenter Street original. But as long as the founding Perri family's women are still cooking, you can't take the Italian Market soul out of Shank's menu. Bringing along the heart of this kitchen was the plan when new owner Marcello Ciurlino moved the popular lunch spot north this summer, and it's payed off with sandwiches that exude a genuine South Philly savor.

A couple hundred years ago, a Brit named Earl - actually, his name was John and he was an earl - had a gambling problem. He loved gambling so much he refused to stop playing cards to eat lunch. So, a clever cook came up with a complete meal that John could consume quickly, and without getting his hands - or his cards - dirty. The cook slapped some cold meat between two slices of bread and served it to his boss. Nobody remembers the name of John's cook. But we all know John as the Earl of Sandwich.

When winter winds howl and you need to get lunch on the table fast, why not a hot microwaved sandwich? It will be ready in minutes, and you need only add a soup or salad, a glass of milk and fruit for dessert to round out the meal. You should know, however, that not all sandwiches are candidates for the microwave. Open-faced meat or poultry sandwiches, cheese melts, stuffed rolls and heroes all microwave superbly. But grilled sandwiches fare better on the stovetop, and filled croissants do better in a regular oven because microwaving makes them soggy.

It was poetry reading night at the recently opened Cafe Flix on North Church Street in West Chester. A man with long brown hair squeezed his way through the crowd up to the old wooden bar, where countless draft beers and shots of whiskey used to be served. He ordered a six-pack to go. "We don't serve alcohol," Dave Shur, owner of the cafe, informed the patron from behind the bar. The man seemed momentarily stunned. He stared into the glass-front refrigerator that for years had been stocked with assorted beers.

It's a list to make Philly sandwich lovers drool. Or is it a half-dozen lists rolled up into one chewer-friendly guide? WIP midday cohost Glen Macnow has finished his Hot Specialty Sandwich Safari - his sixth annual great-food hunt - and declared the top six that will face a panel of slobbering celebrity judges next Thursday. The public is invited to attend the event - and try free samples, starting about 11 a.m. - at the Fieldhouse, 11th and Filbert Streets, next to Reading Terminal Market.

Natalie Braunstein Folkman, 92, who at age 86 moved out of her large home in Reading into a small high-rise apartment in Philadelphia and got around Center City on a small, collapsible bicycle, died Saturday at her residence. Mrs. Folkman was born and raised in Coatesville. Her parents sent her to Philadelphia every Sunday to attend Sunday school at Congregation Keneseth Israel on North Broad Street. In her later years, when she lived in the city, she used to go on walks and give out sandwiches to homeless people.

Tea sandwiches are as many and varied as the baked goods that crowd the table for Afternoon Tea. At a minimum, there are fingers of bread lacquered with sweet butter and a pot of jelly or honey nearby. But there might also be cucumber sandwiches made of thin disks of bread primed with a glaze of butter and shingles of cucumber laid on top. Potted shrimp or ham might be spread on toast, or slices of tomato and grated cheese on a length of french bread. There is likely a pile of buns filled with sausage, cheese or deviled meats, and tiny squares of white bread spread with herb butter and smoked fish.

Lunch no longer has to be a simple peanut butter and jelly sandwich. There are many other enjoyable yet easy lunches that your children can make for themselves. Crunchy Tuna Melts are a favorite sandwich among youngsters as well as adults. The sandwiches are served hot, but will keep their crispy crunch from the sprouts tucked underneath the well-seasoned tuna salad. These sandwiches can be made in advance and then warmed when your children are ready for lunch. Corn Dogs are common carnival food.

HARRISBURG - It could be one of the priciest egg sandwiches ever made - yet never eaten. And Pennsylvania taxpayers are footing the bill. A long-running court battle between a Harrisburg restaurant owner and a former member of Gov. Corbett's cabinet over the preparation of an egg sandwich has ended with a $75,000 settlement, court records show. The state's payout to Richard Hanna, finalized late last month, came more than two years after he accused the commonwealth and then-Health Secretary Eli Avila of retaliating against him for the way Hanna had cooked the new cabinet member's egg one morning in 2011.

A 12-YEAR-OLD BOY was jumped, assaulted and robbed by four teens who stole his sandwich and french fries Friday in Upper Darby, according to police. Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood said yesterday that the 12-year-old victim, who is a "real nice neighborhood kid," was coming out of a convenience store on Long Lane near Clinton Road about 5 p.m. when four "morons" hit him, knocked him to the ground and "thumped" him. They stole the food, the only possessions the boy had on him, Chitwood said.

It's the rich versus the handicapped. Guess who's winning. Bingo. I read it in the paper. The first incident I read about took place in Newport, R.I., where there are stately mansions owned by families like the Vanderbilts, who got here a long time before the Scottolines. The Vanderbilts came over on the Mayflower, in contrast to my ancestors, who took the bus. With about 10 transfers. Anyway, according to the news story, lots of tourists go see the mansions in Newport, so many that somebody proposed to build a visitor center with handicapped-accessible ramps and bathrooms.

NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. - Rutgers University's storied grease trucks are pulling up stakes from Parking Lot 8 after about 20 years. By the end of Aug. 15, they have to vacate the premises. Contrary to rumor, they won't be gone. Rutgers spokesman E.J. Miranda said the university was in discussions with the owners of the five trucks to offer them space in other locations on Rutgers' various campuses. The university wants the land for a new, 500-bed student residence with retail space.

EVEN as fast-food chains tout their healthy offerings, they're also coming up with fatty new treats to keep customers interested. Case in point: Dunkin' Donuts is adding a doughnut breakfast sandwich to its national menu starting tomorrow. Dunkin' Donuts says that the Glazed Donut Breakfast Sandwich clocks in at 360 calories, which is less than the 390 calories for the turkey sausage sandwich it recently introduced. The latest concoction may seem to conflict with fast-food chains' efforts to attract people who say they want fresher, wholesome food.

The Foodery once set the bar for Philadelphia's mix-and-match beer bottle shops with a vast wall of fridges brimming with hundreds of high-end brews. Its latest outlet - the Corner Foodery near Rittenhouse Square - takes the bottle shop to a new level again, but with a handcrafted sit-down menu to accompany those bottles, 700 of which owner Tony Rim has stocked in the gleaming fridges. But chef John Taus, of Corner Restaurant fame, has created his own draw, a serious sandwich board built from largely house-made charcuterie, from the fennel sausage to the exceptional mortadella that he fries up with an egg. My favorite, though, was the sandwich of house-cured Spanish sardines, seared and set on a seeded bun with pickled cauliflower florets and spreadable "nduja" Calabrian salami.

What is it? A "mobile farmer's market" that whips up hearty sandwiches, soups and salads made with locally sourced, seasonal ingredients. Fare that's more healthy and tasty than you might expect from two guys in a truck. What to eat: Owners Kris Pepper and Eliot Coven are still plating their winter menu, which features the flavorful grilled squash sandwich (squash, ham, mixed greens, goat cheese and homemade herb mustard on multigrain bread) and rib-sticking soups, such as chipotle black bean chili and organic potato and leek.
