LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

F ew things make a stomach burble more happily than good Jewish cooking, and we've got several big servings of it for the holidays. For the lowdown on making latkes--the spud studs of potato pancakes--check out the historic survey from Newcity Chicago's A. LaBan. Austin Chronicle's Ronna Welsh taste-tests the new PBS series "Jewish Cooking in America," while the paper's Katie Walsh tours the "Children's Jewish Holiday Kitchen." Plus, tips for picking "Wines for Chanukah."

Also in Arts & Leisure: Play a real-life version of the Parker Bros. Classic "Masterpiece" game, gang up on hapless NFL refs, and get toasted with the "Whine" generation.
