As food editor of "faquire"magazine^ authored a"Handbook for Hosts" (Grotset Dunlaphand he appears on TVs "Today Show" as ''gourmrt-in-reÂ»d*nce.'' His many admirers find him an apparently inexhaustible source of food lore and good i copes. One of de Groofs favorite dishes for entertaining is Kata- touifle, a recipe from Nice, in the south of France, that combines gently simmered fresh vegetables with elegant seasonings. Pronounced "rab-tah-too-ee," this light delicacy is easier to prepare than to pronounce. "Make H a day in advance/' advises de Groot, "and keep h covered in the refrigerator--that way the various tastes and textures Mend and mature overnight'' He serves H as a refreshing appetizer, along with a good, robust California ros* wine. - tATATOuilli A U wkotse Va cup olive or vegetable oil 3 medium onions, coarsely chopped 3 medium green peppers, cut into 1-inch pieces 2 medium eggplants, cut into chunks without peeling 3 medium zucchini, cut into chunks without peeling 2 garlic cloves, finely minced 1 can (about 11b.)

Â· For adding a fresh touch to breakfast and brunches, serve peeled slices of chilled cantaloupe with bacon, or wedges of honeydew melon with thin, rolled slices of harm. Â· Cantaloupe wedges dipped in lemon juice, and rolled in slivered almonds or toasted coconut, make a wonderful accompaniment to omelets, fried chicken or cold cuts and cheese. Â· Diced cantaloupe and strawberry halves make a cool appetizer or dessert when served covered with sauterne or rose wine in oversized goblets. OVEN NOTES The most modem ovens now on the market blend conventional methods of cooking and microwave speed-cooking. "Combination cooking," as it's ' called, allows roasting foods to brown nicely and cook rapidly. Meanwhile, back at the range, some cooks even avoid electric burners--they claim that gas ranges give the most precise results. Some people with large families^-or big appetites--purchase commercial ranges from restaurant supply stores. These ranges have six or more burners, sometimes a double oven, and are ideal for cooking a lot of food at once. RAW FACTS Purchasers of "raw" sugar are actually buying a partially refined sugar, called "turbinado," that resembles raw sugar in appearance. True raw sugar contains so many impurities that it has been banned for sale by the Food and Drug Administration. PHOTOGRAPHED AT THE IRVING TRUST COMPANY.
