Last week’s puzzle, “Preposition Cook,” asked for a word you might hear in a French restaurant. But while the theme was culinary, the foods involved were definitely not French. Here’s a picture, followed by the explanation:

What the puzzle depicts, through visual wordplay, are three dishes with prepositions in their names:

BEANS ON TOAST
CHICKEN UNDER A BRICK
TOAD IN THE HOLE

The path to the answer is then to take the first letters of those three prepositions (the only words involved that don’t actually appear in the grid), which spell out OUI – certainly a word you should expect to hear in a French restaurant.

Next up is puzzle #58, “Double Header.”
