With the increased daylight hours and the thermometer on the rise, I felt led to work up a spicy southern style salad with mayo and a bit of fresh ginger and eggs. Even though eggs are my least favorite of all foods, I still cook with them and prepare them for guests. They are delicious to some and quite healthful when used in a balanced meal. - Scott C. Anderson is associate food service director and chef with Shepherd University dining services in Shepherdstown, W.Va.

The Tri-State area is known for its Pennsylvania Dutch influence. German immigrants settled in nearby Pennsylvania and in Washington County, Md., and brought with them one of their lasting influences: food.

I come from a Pakistani and Indian background when it comes to cooking. Every aspect of my culture has a food related to it. For the monsoon season, for example, we prepare fruit- and floral-inspired dishes with lots of colors to remind us of the coming of the harvest. I learned to cook when I was about 13. We were a big family. As my mother and aunts would prepare traditional foods for celebrations, or even regular Tuesday night meals, my sisters and I would help. It was communal and fun. My Catholic faith is a direct reflection of why being a chef appeals to me. The food-artistry is inspiring, and breaking bread together, sharing it and receiving it brings us closer to serving God and one another.

By ANNE CHOVEY Special to The Herald-Mail My pal, Tom Atoe, and I stopped in for a bite to eat at The Brickyard Grill, a new salad and sandwich shop in downtown Hagerstown. The restaurant is small with a few tables in the shape of huge butterflies. The bulk of the business is take-out for busy office workers who want to grab a quick lunch. The restaurant was spotless. The menu is primarily made up of sandwiches: hot, signature and deli.
