The whimsical story of Mr. Angelo, a man who loves to cook and then eat whatever he cooks, but who also cooks more than he can eat by himself. He goes into the restaurant business to sell the abundance, but each new day, according to his fancy, he cooks something different--much to his customers' frustration. His business dilemma is resolved when he takes up a partnership with Jim, a boy who successfully takes the food out in a wagon to sell it.
