For an Epicure’s Dish
Lady readers of the Herald may be
interested in a recipe for cooking ham,
and for the accompanying sauces, which
is pronounced by Wm. S. H art, the T ri
angle player of W estern characters,
som ething to dream about for weeks af
te r you e at it. H art journeyed to Cal
exico, Mexico, not long ago to make
about three m inutes of film for “ The
P a trio t," a Triangle Kay-Bee play.
Calexico and Mexicali are a couple of
sand-blown villages of eternal heat, the
form er on the California side of the
Mexican border and the la tte r on the
other. They are about 150 miles south
of the Triangle-K ay Bee studio a t Cul
ver City, Cal. It was in Mexicali th a t
H a rt had his now celebrated culinary
adventure with a ham and learned a re
cipe here dissem inated for the good of
Down in tl e dusty town he m et an
Englishm an vho took H a rt to one of
the dingiest public restau ra n ts he had
ever seen, and began a meal with sopa
and frijoles and sole leather e hilados
dipped in a varnish of hell-flame and a
bunch of other het stuil, until there
came on a dome-shaped arrangem ent
on a cracked blue p la tte r in the hands
of the ample and ancient Mexican dam
sel who acted as Hebe.
“ It was ham, to begin w ith ," said
H art in telling the story, “ overlaid on
a dome of sw eet potatoes and the whole
luscious with a sauce th a t m akes you
dream about it for weeks a fte r.
“ And it turned out it was the only
dish she could cook —though, of course,
she could boil and burn and otherw ise
abuse food a fte r the Mexican fashion.
My new friend told me th a t she was the
daughter of some adventuring French
chef who came over to Mexico in the
days of Maximilian and took unto him
self a Mexican wife, und th a t this one
dish was the sole knowledge of his skill
th a t was hers by inheritance.
“ I wanted th a t recipe! Could I g e t
it? She beamed all over as this was
translated to her and waddled off to re
turn with a slip of paper, grease spotted
through the years of Mexican kitchen
vicissitudes, and w ritten in a crabbed
French. ‘She can’t read or w rite ,’ e x
plained my friend, ‘but carried it all in
her head.’ He translated and I put it
down. It was invented in honor of
Mexico by this old chef fifty years ago,
and he had tau g h t it to his Mexican
daughter by h e a rt."
H a rt fished aroui J .... the pockuU of
his cowpuncher rig amid his cigarette
papers and tobacco, and presently pull
ed out a slip of pa, r.
“ Oh, oh, Willia.n H art, don’t you
dare read a line oi th a t until I ge a
pencil anu a piece f p a p er!" wailed a
voice from the dre sing room balcony
overhead. It was Louise Glaum, who
is very domestic.
And when the aforesaid William S.
