>GREAT CHEFS: A HOLIDAY TABLE Ten chefs from eight nations prepare 20 sinful seasonal treats in this festive 60-minute tape. Here is a suckling pig with pork drippings from New Orleans and a turkey stuffed with truffles from England. China's additions to the table, like crystal jade shrimp, are lighter, but Yugoslavia weighs in with stuffed cabbage and deep-fried cookies. The only loser is a German gingerbread house, which is so carelessly constructed, it should be condemned. Otherwise this slick video is downright delicious. (Great Chefs, $19.95; 800-526-7002)
