EDITOR?S NOTE: Terry Markowitz, her husband, Mark, and friends just returned from a trip to Southeast Asia. Following is an account of their ?food? travels in the country. ? ?Today, we are going to see how rice noodles are made,? said Fong, our North Vietnamese guide. He had quickly picked up on the fact that we were interested in all things concerning food. We found ourselves in a tiny village outside of Hanoi beside a narrow branch of the Mekong River. The village, perhaps 20 houses in size, is entirely devoted to the production of this staple food.

BEST BUYS You'd expect to see Indian Territory Inc. on Canyon Road in Santa Fe, not in Laguna Beach. Nationally known as a great resource for collectors and investors since 1969, Indian Territory has one of the largest collections of Navajo baskets and rugs from the 1870s to 1940s. Basket sizes vary: There are large urn shapes for storing grains, flat shapes for gambling games and large conical bowls for making acorn mush, a staple food in California.
