Not necessarily true.

I guess there is no accounting for (good) taste. My dad's cousin's 2nd wife, who my mother referred to as genteelly as possible within earshot as the Inter-loper. She made the Best Tasting Cakes. Set the rectangular metal baking pan on a bread board on the table while the cake was fresh from the oven. She made a buttery burnt brown sugar frosting that she poured over while still hot. then cut into huge squares for us and the frosting when plated ran down the sides of the cake. You could burn your tongue on that molten lava> She Automatically reached over and put a 2nd piece on your plate, never stopping what she was talking or doing to ask your parents if it was ok for the kids to have more.

Now That is Presentation. I think we kids called her Aunt-- Because she was.

Mine was a broad generalization, not how one person did something. There is always someone who does something different. In this case, a broad generalization is what is needed.

Just cause Grandma served the Alpo on the fine china didn't make it a dog dish...

Um, I'd call both of those a gratin dish

You can call it a bowler hat if you like. As long as you know what you mean it doesn't matter what you call it.

Yes, but only if you're baking a gratin...

It's all part of Discussing Cooking. Debating the finer points...
