It’s so beautifully arranged on the plate – you know someone’s fingers have been all over it.
~ Julia Child
This is the proximate, precipitate reason for my disgust with Nouvelle Cuisine.
Everyone in the kitchen but the dishwasher has their hands on your food. And as for the dishwasher, I’m not sure they weren’t poking the arugula to get more ‘height’ on the plate. Julia certainly had it right on this.
