We found that out from Gloria Stuart Ellkins, onetime tennis star and lady jockey, who, with husband Cy, now runs Jamaica Inn on the Ocho Rios coast of Jamaica. Churchill turned ip at the Ell- kins' dining terrac. six nights in a row last time he visited that British West Indies island. "He was as easy to feed as a boy," Mrs Ellkins reports. "Clear consomme with lots of sherry; steak, roast beef or lobster; salad, and vanilla Ice cream—slathers of it—with whipped maple syrup for sauce." The idea for the. sauce comes from Gloria's wartime hotel duties in Canada, and is as easy as Churchill's menu; Just whip enough egg white into maple syrup until you get a foamy, fluffy sauce. A non-ClmrchlUian dish the Ell kins find American visitors asking about is a Jamaican one called "Stamp and Go." Down there it's usually a luncheon item. But for the American menu, it would make a fine change from codfish cakes for Sunday brunch or Friday supper. Stamps and Go (Serves 3-4) One-quarter pound salt cod, 2 tablespoons flour, 3 teaspoons baking powder, V 2 cur cold milk, 3 eggs, 1 onion, ground black pepper. Soak fish for 2 hours, then boil When soft, Hake or mince finely. Add finely minced onion and mix with other ingredients Form Into very thin, round fritters and fry in boiling fat. Drain on grease-proof paper and serve very hot with lime slices, fee, tea, milk. By GAY.VOR MADDOX NEA Food and Markets Editor During this holiday season, teenagers home from school on vacation like to meet their friends at informal get-togethers—which leads us to the subject of dough; nuts. Every young person welcomes doughnuts—either plain, sugared or frosted. And certainly they make things easy—nearly every food store now carries good ones. Pile them high on a platter. Serve lots of hot coffee—and let the crowd dunk to their heart's content. Cider, of course, is welcome at a doughnut party. So is hot chocolate. If you want a fancier way to use doughnuts, try this recipe. Staple Puff One tablespoon unflavpred gelatin, 1/4 cup cold water, 14 cup hot milk, 2 eggs, separated; 1 cup maple syrup, % teaspoon salt, '/ 4 cup chopped nuts, 'A teaspoon vanilla. Soak gelatin in cold water about 5 minutes. Add hot milk to slightly beaten egg yolks and cook over low heat until mixture thickens slightly, stirring constantly.

Add chopped nuts, ^our into mold. Chill. As mixture begins to congeal, pour into individual serv-j ing dishes over cut up doughnuts. 1 Serve with whipped cream.
