On today's episode of THE FOOD SEEN, we learn facts, not fiction about April Fools' Day from the man of miscellany, Ben Schott. In Mr. Schott's books, from annuals of Schott's Almanacs to volumes of Schott's Miscellanies, which include a Food & Drink edition, you'll find all the needed trivia for your next dinner party. Lately, Mr. Schott's exploration of the "Secret Languages" in bars and the restaurant world has appeared in the New York Times Op-Ed. This program was sponsored by The Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board.
