The Clean Platter is a food blog! That much should be obvious by the header, I hope. This blog takes its inspiration and title from “The Clean Platter”, a poem by Ogden Nash. I reproduced it in full in this blog’s very first entry. In this blog, you will find recipes, advice, and stories – as well as an inexhaustible larder of horrible puns and ridiculous projects.
I’m David Rheinstrom! I’m a Chicagoan in my early twenties who makes educational language games for a living. I also maintain an admittedly anachronistic but nonetheless passionate interest in radio theater. In addition to cooking and writing, I also enjoy film, music, gardening, and, thanks to my girlfriend, I have developed a burgeoning interest in cats.
