    Chef / spy

    WASHINGTON — Famed chef Julia Child shared a secret with Supreme Court Justice Arthur Goldberg and Chicago White Sox catcher Moe Berg at a time when the Nazis threatened the world.

    They served in an international spy ring managed by the Office of Strategic Services, an early version of the CIA created in World War II by President Franklin Roosevelt.

    The secret comes out Thursday — all of the names and previously classified files identifying nearly 24,000 spies who formed the first centralized intelligence effort by the United States. The National Archives, which this week released a list of the names found in the records, will make available for the first time all 750,000 pages identifying the vast spy network of military and civilian operatives

    This was a secret? She talked in her memoirs about being with the OSS. That's how she met her huband, Paul Child.

    I'm reminded of Steve Martin in the movie The Jerk were they bring a plate of Escargot and he makes them take it back because there are snails on the food.

    Best I ever had were at Cafe des Artistes in New York; a couple of DOZEN of them in a delicate garlic cream sauce, over English-muffin sorts of things. Luscious, and no digging them out of the shells. :D
