PAGBTEN BLYTHEVTI.LB (ARK.) COURIER THURSDAY, JANUARY 21,1954 : ' This Lobster Chowder Good Prelude to Meal CECILY BROWNSTONE As»oc!atcd Press Food Editor A hostess trick from a famous cook book author! Irma Rombauer, the distinguished and charming •uthor of "The Joy of Cooking" (Bobbs-Merrlin, has been visiting in New York City, and while I was cooking dinner for her at my house one night, the let me in on one o her own secrets. Mrs. Rombauer lives In Si Louis and has a small countr house in the Ozark foothills. It In the country that she has lot of company during week ends; It 1 there, she says, that «he finds 1 a big help to serve soup as a {Irs course. She ladles it into cups and brings it to her guests—before they sit down to table— on a tray. Then ss they are enjoying this, she says onion, H cup finely diced celery, llicups water, 1 small bay leaf, one 10-ounce package frozen mixed vegetables (defrosted), one 3-ounce can chopped broiled mushrooms, 1 tablespoon cornstarch. one 8- ounce can tomato sauce, 2 cups milk, 1 teaspoon salt, % teaspoon the has time to put the last touches on the main course and get it ready to be brought to the table as soon as sh« has seated her guests. This Is, of course, a fine idea for the hostess who ha* to be cook and waitress, too. That conversation started us on an Ode to Soup. Mrs. Rombauer and I are both devoted to this good course, and we agree that a hearty and delicious soup Is a wonderful main dish for n company lunch or Sunday night supper. You can serve a salad after it, it you like. Or you can follow it with an assortment of cheese, offered — as they do in Prance — with crusty bread and •. •weet butter. I It goes without saying that substantial dessert should follow a soup meal. A good choice would be a favorite of Irma Rombauer's— nut cake. If you like the Idea of an easy- to-get soup meal, we urge you to try this Lobster Chowder. Our taste-testers were enthusiastic about its combination of flavors. l/OBSTER CHOWDER Ingredients:. 2 tablespoons butter or margarine, % cup finely diced pepper, one 6 1 /^ ounce can rock lobster.
