A Story of Discovery
in which Camilla discovers her talent for pies and has a Great Idea
Camilla didn't like school. And school didn't like poor Camilla. So they said “goodbye” to each other as soon as possible. But she did love kitchens. And everybody loved the things that Camilla made in kitchens. So after a little bit of thinking she decided that, instead of being a trapeze artist, a bank clerk or a prison warden, she would try to make people happy with her creative cooking talents.
It takes time to perfect such special skills. And it takes lots of mixing and chopping and baking and rolling and inventing and shopping and trying and failing to become really, really good. But Camilla became that good. In fact, she became so good that one-day she helped her friends open a café. A Very-Nice-One. People loved their café so much (and the food she invented for it) that they opened lots more. After that so many people loved eating Camilla's café food that a Great-Big-Coffee-Company came along and ate up all their little cafes. But they knew Camilla's irresistible recipes were the Secret-Of-Success so they made her Chief-Of-Food for their cafes all over the land!
Camilla's food became quite famous. And even all her old school teachers loved it. She would scour the country for new ideas for all those cafes. But as Camilla searched and searched she soon realised that nobody could make a pie quite like her own. “Hmmmmmm”, she thought. Why is no-one making Really-Great-Pies? It was then that she had a Great Idea! The rest as they say is higgidy...
