FLIGHTSEEING OVER OREGON

I was thrilled to see M&M Seaplanes mentioned in your article "Secrets of the Oregon Coast-Revealed!" (October, page 86).

I would recommend this trip to anyone.

MOONRISE POTLUCK IN YOSEMITE

Re: "A Food Lovers' Picnic" (September, page 161). This is the eighth year I have organized a potluck dinner on top of Sentinel Dome in Yosemite National Park on the evening of the harvest moon. After a short hike, we watch the sunset, followed by the full moon rising over the Sierra crest. The view is awesome.

Thanks for the great idea.

RAH-RAH FOR RAU RAM

Each spring when we replenish our herb garden, we add a few rare or unusual selections. This year we were enticed by Vietnamese cilantro. It did well in the garden, and we experimented with it in several dishes but could find no recipes listing it as an ingredient. Then, in your September issue, the headline "A Zippy Asian Herb" caught my eye. Your recipe for Rau Ram Chicken Salad (page 152; shown above) was a winner, and your description of the herb (resembling a blend of coriander and purple basil) was right on. …
