in your pocket or are you really glad to see me? I like to make this bulge under the rim of dinner plates. As well as a visual point of interest it provides a place to put your forefinger in the well near the foot and your thumb on the rim of the plate for carrying. I learned to make big rimmed plates when working with a chef some years ago. They like the rim to sprinkle all kinds of visual goodies on and they don't like the servers thumb to be near the food. I also like a nice big casual whoopie in the center of the plate made with my rib at slowwwwwwww speed.
