Miss Piggy gets help from her friends
Moi cook? Non, non, non -- when moi wants a treat from the kitchen, moi turns to some of moi's close personal friends and admirers, such as John Travolta (lobster with three sauces), Whoopi Goldberg (a vegetable puree) Barbara Bush (cocktail party bologna) and Placido Domingo (creme chocolat). And then moi writes a cookbook called, "In the Kitchen with Miss Piggy" (Time-Life Books, $17.95), so all of moi's adoring fans can share them. Bon appetit, or whatever. On an eight-month tour by the Pride of Baltimore II last year, chefs in ports of call were invited to create innovative chicken dishes with Old Bay seasoning. Award winners include pistachio chicken from Boston, firecracker Alfredo from Philadelphia, and chicken, shrimp and sausage jambalaya from Virginia. For a free booklet with more than two dozen easy recipes, write "Cooking with Pride," c/o Old Bay Co., Inc., 211 Schilling Circle, Hunt Valley 21031.
