I Miss - 5

The smell of fresh baked bread
Knowing the hungry are fed
Sculpting an ice block into a swan
Crying profusely when it is gone
The different pastry tips to decorate,
A seven tier cake for a bride's new mate
The flambe flaring in the saucier's pan
The joy inside,from a customer's extended hand
A look of awe upon a new student's face
When she asks sincerely, how to keep up the pace
Teaching to cook completely from scratch
The proofs in the homemade Yorkshire Pudding: that opening cans, can not match

Dedicated to James Marshall Goff ( Jimbo )

Hi HG....thank you! This epicurian masterpiece reminds me of the writings of Auguste you & Chef, my days are spent fullfilling cust. orders...these moments of satisfaction make it worthwhile, indeed...upon his staffs demise aboard the Titanic, Escoffier spent his remaining days taking care of their families, left behind...your compassion is similar...jimbo

I'll catch the next Flight over. Actually I'm not a tea drinker, I like coffee better and any kind of pudding. LOVE YOU, YOUR Liege.. .Harry
