This is one of those restaurant tricks that can make a difference at home, especially in the wintertime. Amaya has a thing about hot food and putting warm food on a cold plate means it chills down that much more quickly. Of course we don't always have an oven going at dinner time so when we got a tip from Rich about microwaving the plates it was like a light bulb went off in our heads. One minute in the microwave on high and we had perfectly warm plates for dinner. It's the little things that make all the difference.
