THE WINGS: Prepare the chicken wings: Mince and mash the garlic and shallots to a paste with the salt. In a large bowl stir the paste together with the 5 spice powder, paprika, rosemary, cayenne, and the oil. Mix well. Add the chicken wings. Toss and stir them until they are completely covered with the marinade. Let them marinate, covered and chilled for 4 hours or over night. Arrange the wings, skin side up, on the rack of a foil lined large broiler pan and bake them in the upper third of a preheated 425F oven for 25 to 30 minutes or until they are golden. The wings may be prepared one day in advance, kept covered and chilled and then reheated before serving. THE SAUCE: In a blender, blend together the peanut butter, cream of coconut, garlic, water, bell pepper, red pepper flakes and the soy sauce until the mixture is smooth, season the sauce with salt, to taste. THE PRESENTATION: Transfer the sauce to a serving bowl set on a platter. Arrange the wings around the bowl and garnish the platter with the coriander.

Neapolitan-Style Crostini
Ingredients:

16 Slices of Italian bread, Cut 1/2-inch thick 1/4 c Extra-virgin olive oil 1/3 c Black or green olivada* OR 1/3 c (4 oz.) Calamata olives, Pitted or finely chopped 1/2 lb Fresh mozzarella cheese, Cut in 14 1/4-inch slices 1/2 lb Plum tomatoes, cut Lengthwise into 16 1/4-inch Slices 1/8 ts Salt 1/8 ts Freshly ground black pepper

Procedures:

1. Preheat the oven to 400F. Brush one side of the bread slices with some of the olive oil and arrange on a baking sheet oiled side up. Bake until lightly browned and crusty, about 4 minutes. 2. Spread the olivada or chopped olives on each toast, cover each with a slice of mozzarella and top with a slice of tomato. Brush the tomatoes with the remaining oil and sprinkle with the salt and pepper. Bake until the cheese is melted, about 8 to 10 minutes. Serve at once. * Olivada is a puree of black or green olives packed in oil that is sold at specialty food stores. You can substitute tapenade or make your own. (Note from me: We have a batch of pesto in the refrigerator so I plan to use it instead of the olivada.) I also plan to use Creole or homegrown tomatoes. 16 servings
