Early in July, a dozen local officials of the Roman Catholic Church gathered at St. Vibiana's Cathedral, the official residence of Los Angeles Archbishop Roger M. Mahony. They arrived with an unusual, if altogether pleasant, mission. The group segued to the dining room, took their seats and settled down to the evening's business: checking out the chef chosen to feed Pope John Paul II during his upcoming visit to the city.

It's clear the Pope knows well the maxim, "God helps those who help themselves." John Paul II was very hungry when he returned from leading the Mass that brought 100,000 people to the Los Angeles Coliseum on Tuesday night. But when he entered the dining room at St. Vibiana's, he didn't see any waiters. He went into the adjoining small kitchen and, though the salmon smelled good and the sauce was simmering, he didn't see any chefs.

You can eat like the Pope while he's here, but you probably won't want to. Many of the dishes that chef Ruggero Gadaldi plans to feed the Pope come straight off his menu at Cardini in the Los Angeles Hilton and Towers. Whether you will want your dinner in the elegant supermodern restaurant to parallel the Pope's is another matter; I found those particular dishes among the least appealing offerings on the menu.
