I suspect that Graham Kerr has not looked inside the halls of Congress lately, but he believes the "home dining table is our last remaining tribal gathering place." mm iiVII : Vr-- IT 1.1 iimiiyi.i.iii The fact that sit-down meals with families and friends are fewer today than before television pushed him to write this new book. Graham Kerr wrote The Gathering Place 'to inspire you to make casual gatherings part of your life again, but with a twist.' 2 tablespoons dark molasses 2 tablespoons sunflower oil 1 clove garlic, minced IV2 teaspoons dried marjoram leaves, crushed lVa teaspoons dried oregano leaves, crushed Oil for the broiler pan Lemon wedges, for garnish Parsley sprigs, for garnish Rinse the shrimp with cold water. Dry with paper towels. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and set aside. In a medium saucepan, combine the ketchup, wine, hoisin or soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, molasses and oil. Add the garlic, marjoram and oregano to the pan. Place the pan over medium-high heat and bring to a gentle boil. Reduce the heat to very low, cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, for about 30 minutes. If the sauce thickens, stir in a little more wine or water. Preheat the broiler. Lightly oil a large broiler pan. Place the shrimp on the pan in a single layer. Brush generously with the barbecue sauce. Set about 6 inches from the heat. Broil for 2 minutes. Remove the pan from under the broiler. Using tongs or a fork, turn over each shrimp. Brush generously again with the barbecue sauce. Set the pan back under the heat and broil for 2 minutes longer or until the shrimp are tender and nink. Serve immediately with lem TABLE READING - " " ' ;.r v :v . Kerr &, jsii. 1 --J Z 1 This recipe is from The Gathering Place by Graham Kerr (Camano Press, $27.95). Note: You need lemongrass, garlic and gin-gerroot for both parts of this recipe. Roasted chicken with pineapple curry sauce 2 stalks fresh lemongrass, about 9 Inches each 1 piece gingerroot (about 4 Inches), finely sliced 6 cloves garlic, peeled, bashed and chopped 2 whole chickens, about 3V2 pounds each, rinsed and dried Pineapple Curry Sauce: 1 teaspoon light olive oil cup finely diced sweet onion 1 tablespoon India Ethmix or good Madras curry 1 tablespoon peeled and grated gingerroot 2 large cloves garlic, peeled, bashed and finely chopped 1 tablespoon finely sliced lemongrass cup low-sodium chicken or vegetable stock Va cup frozen pineapple juice concentrate Va cup yogurt cheese (see below) V2 teaspoon coconut extract 1 tablespoon Thai fish sauce Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Remove the tough outside layer of the lemongrass stalks and cut off the root end and the dry top. Starting from the root end, cut the most tender, bulb-like part of the stalk into thin diagonal slices. Combine the lemongrass, ginger and garlic and divide between the two cavities of the cool for a minute, then stir into the curry sauce. Arrange slices of chicken on a warmed plate and spoon curry sauce over the meat. Makes 6 servings. Yogurt strained into a concentrate makes it ideal for sauces and as a substitute for butter, mayonnaise or other high-fat spreads, Kerr says. sweet potatoes, green beans and macaroni and cheese while parishioners greet him. That's a snapshot from dinner at the Glendale Baptist Church in Landover, Md. It's a scene that's repeated time and time again in the nation's black churches, and one that's been captured in this a rich and personal collection of food and folk. This is a compendium of homey food served by avid churchgoers, a potluck-of-a-cookbook woven together by Joyce White, a New York freelance writer and contributing food editor at Heart & Soul Magazine. Carole Sugarman, The Washington Post B COOKING WITH THE TWO FAT LADIES, by Clarissa Dickson Wright and Jennifer Pater-son (Potter, $25). Clarissa Dickson Wright and Jennifer Paterson are two of the delights of the Food Network. As the title characters of Cooking With the Two Fat Ladies, they richly mine the territory of women of a certain age who know their minds. They wander the British Isles, usually on a Triumph Thunder-bird motorbike. Now the recipes from their shows are compiled in a new book. We might do best to sit back and enjoy them on the telly, however. First, the book is heavy on game, much of which we can't get here. And there is the food safety issue. One of the recipes in this cookbook is the "shooter's sandwich." It's a loaf of bread that is hollowed, then stuffed with grilled mushrooms and a seared piece of sirloin. The whole contraption is then weighted for six hours (with no recommendation for refrigeration), then sliced and served. Do not try this at home. The possibilities for food poisoning with this technique are pretty much endless. Beverly Bundy, Fort Worth Star-Telegram Yogurt cheese "My goal is to inspire you to make casual gatherings part of your life again," he writes, "but with a twist." The twist, as Kerr watchers will know, is to create lighter, healthier dishes full of flavors from many ports, of call. The genesis of this self-published volume is a world cruise that the author took last year on the Queen Elizabeth II. It began in New York and continued on to the Caribbean, Mexico, Los Angeles, and across the Pacific to Hawaii, Samoa, Fiji, New Zealand and Sydney, Australia, where Kerr once lived. Inspired by these venues, the author created 13 complete dinners for six. Each recipe is easy to read and in considerable detail. Peter D. Franklin, Universal Press Syndicate D SOUL FOOD: Recipes and Reflections From African-American Churches, by Joyce White (HarperCollins, $25). They're definitely having too much fun at that table, the one where kids and grown-ups are chatting, chowing down and periodically exploding with a whoop. Isaiah McNeil, age 2, is having a quieter but just as satisfying time at another table, gnawing a spar-erib clean. And seated at a table in between, the Rev. Anthony Ma-clin tries to eat a plate of ribs, on wedges. Decorate the platter with parsley sprigs. Makes 4 servings.

Remove from the oven and set aside for 10 minutes. The final internal temperature should be 160 degrees. To prepare the sauce: Warm the oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Saute the onion and India Ethmix or Madras curry until the onion is soft and translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in the ginger, garlic and lemongrass and cook for 3 more minutes. Add the chicken stock and pineapple juice concentrate, stirring to incorporate. Cook for an additional 3 minutes. Strain the sauce through a sieve into a small saucepan using a puree press or the back of a spoon. Whisk together the yogurt cheese, coconut extract and Thai fish sauce in a 2-cup glass measure. Pour a little of the hot pineapple sauce into the yogurt mixture and stir to warm the yogurt cheese. Add the tempered yogurt cheese to the sauce and whisk until smooth. Cover and set aside to keep warm. To assemble the dish: Remove the chickens from the roasting pan and pour the cooking juices into a fat strainer. Remove the vertical roasters if you were using them. Remove and discard the skin. Cut the legs and breast meat away from the carcasses. Put aside 1 leg and 1 breast for another meal. Slice the meat from the remaining breasts and legs and arrange on a warmed plate. Cover and keep warm. Pour the de-fatted pan juices into a small saucepan and boil vigorously until the liquid is reduced to about 14V4 cup. Allow to IVi cups plain nonfat yogurt, no gelatin added Put the yogurt in a strainer over a bowl. Or you can use a coffee filter, piece of muslin, or'a paper towel and place it in a small sieve over a bowl. Cover and let it drain in the refrigerator for 12 hours or overnight. The liquid whey drains into the bowl, leaving you with thick, creamy yogurt cheese.

Turn the chickens breast down on a plate so that the seasonings fall against the inside of the breasts. Insert a vertical poultry roaster into each chicken and stand upright. Tie the legs together with cotton string and tuck the wings behind the breast. Got News For Your Neighbors?
