I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'food' is the definition.
I know nothing about this answer so I can't judge whether this works.

'cooks have made plain' is the wordplay.
'cooks' is an anagram indicator.
'have'+'made'+'plain'='havemadeplain'
'havemadeplain' anagrammed gives 'VEAL-AND-HAM PIE'.

'that' is the link.

Can you help me to learn more?
