Professional Students of the Plate. neither were professional cooks.



Mrs. Child taught us to remember, its going to be on your plate.


that's why at then end of each show, B&W, etc.  she served the food to her guests  ( you and me ) and her self.


then then said  


"Bon Appetit"


she meant it.


being able to cook  well helped them understand that its about the Plate.  in the end.


with some friends.  there were always many plates on Mrs. Childs table


I dont know how R.O. ate.  but in there early books there were some pictures.


not by himself.
