To become a good cook requires more than the blind following of a recipe. It means to gain a knowledge of foods and how they behave and skill in manipulating them. The recipe by itself, helpful as it is, will not produce a good product; the human being using the recipe must interpret it and must have skill in handling the materials it prescribes.~Ruth Berolzheimer, Director Culinary Arts Institute – American Woman’s Cook Book
Never be afraid of food.~ Chef John Farion, CWC

Why is it Called The Good Plate
I wanted my recipes with me. Being a website developer, I decided to tip my toe into WordPress and make a recipe blog. First, I found a theme with a plate and fork on it and decided that would be the name, The Good Plate. The problem with that original theme was the plate. I have been collecting the wonderful Organdie plates from Vernonware. Those plates became my logo, and they really are a Very Good Plate.
