PEARLY GREATS: Smoked oysters are packed in oil. Drain and pat dry with
paper towels. Layer, 1 cracker with a leaf or two of arugula and a plump
oyster; garnish the plate with freshly cracked peppers, pink, green and
black. Watercress would work well, too.

CLAWS CELEBRE aka Lobster Raita: Mix cucumber, seafood, onion, seasonings
with yogurt; thin with buttermilk. Separate radicchio leaves, small, curled
into a cup shape. Divide seafood salad into four servings. (about 100 cal)

BOURSIN Cheese is creamy, flavorful, fairly light. Whip the cheese with
softened sun-dried tomatoes. Dieters spread 1 tables on three bread slices.
(110 cals for all three).

CRABBY ARTICHOKES: Artichoke bottoms are bite-size edible cups, come in a
can or jar, cleaned and ready to eat. Fill each 'cup' with a mixture of
tarragon and crab salad. (3 cups, filled, 187 cal, 4.8 g fat)

DATES STUFFED WITH ALMONDS: That 's it. Matthew Kenny, a NY chef, so
simple, so popular. He leaves the skin on the almond but you could use
blanched. (all 6 dates = 172 cals)
