"Buffet Froid" is French for cold cuts. That's about the only definite thing I can tell you about this new dark comedy by Bertrand Blier, the director of "Going Places," "Get Out Your Handkerchiefs," "Menage" and numerous other more accessible films. A deserted subway station. A stocky man in a coat (Gerard Depardieu), whose name turns out to be Alphonse Tram, assails a nervous accountant, confessing that he has unnerving fantasies about killing people. As if to prove his point, he pulls out his knife.

Something seems amiss. Here is Susan Fletcher, high-flying daughter of former Eagles owner Leonard Tose, the team's former vice president and legal counsel, a blonde-on-blonde vision in her sequined white sweater and silver jewelry. But outside the window is gritty Pennsauken, not the lush green of Veterans Stadium. And what's this? Fletcher is running a polished fingernail along . . . a slab of ham? Strange, but true. Fletcher, once a step away from the rarefied circle of NFL ownership, has traded the silver-winged helmet for the hard hat and butcher smock.

OSCAR MAYER THIN SLICED COLD CUTS. Boiled ham, honey ham, roast beef, roast chicken breast and roast turkey breast. 98 cents per 2-ounce bag or $2.25 per 6-ounce bag.

These cold cuts are 94 percent fat-free by weight but only 73 percent fat- free in terms of calories from fat (the more traditional way to measure such things)

Germany, probably more than any other country on the planet, is hellbent on quality. This ranges from cars to cutlery to even the spartan yet satisfying sandwiches served at both breakfast and lunch. Take heavy, dark rye bread, some cold cuts and maybe a slice of cheese or a dab of mustard, and you've got the classic German sandwich. Don't even think about mayonnaise or butter, says Walter Rieker, co-owner of Rieker's Prime Meats, 7979 Oxford Ave. (215-745-3114) in Fox Chase, where nearly all the meat cold cuts and sausages are made and smoked on the premises.

Ralph Principe wants to know what somebody's done with his 600 pounds of mozzarella cheese. The cheese is missing from Principe's pizza shop in Chester County, along with 60 pounds of pepperoni and a 300-pound meat slicer, police said yesterday. The Great Cheese Heist was Friday. "If I gave you 600 pounds of mozzarella cheese, what would you do with it?" asked Principe, who last month opened Marco's Pizza along Route 100 in Exton. "You wouldn't take it. You wouldn't know what to do with it. " The bewildered Principe, 69, thought he had seen it all at his last pizza shop, which he ran in the Olney section of Philadelphia for nine years.

If you don't want to wait in line to order a deli platter at your local Acme, hop online for a shortcut to the cold cuts. The virtual supermarket, or at least the deli counter, has arrived as a stop on the information highway. "It's a new medium. We thought we should be there," said Edwin Spragg, vice president of advertising for Malvern-based Acme Markets, which put up its own World Wide Web page last month, hoping to attract sales. Although Acme's not the first grocery chain to go virtual (others include Kroger and Winn Dixie)

It was impressive. After a 12-story elevator ride, diners relaxed in cushioned wicker chairs. The clatter of their dinnerware evaporated into the vast, handsome quadrangle. Sharply attired servers moved gracefully. They nodded, smiled and did their best to pamper the patrons. On the north side of this giant, cream-and-green courtyard, a guest of the Hotel Atop the Bellevue peered down from his balcony perch several floors above. Below him was the Conservatory restaurant, a striking architectural structure that brings to mind this decade's version of the great gallerias of Italy.

Who ever thought we would be glad to see Stevie Nicks again? Well, for starters, the half-million record-buyers who helped Nicks' Trouble in Shangri-la go gold. They were probably pretty happy - until they got it home and listened to it. Then, the righteous-babe rockers such as Sheryl Crow and Courtney Love, who see the former Fleetwood Mac frontwoman as some kind of fairy godmother of chick-rock. And the mothers and daughters who frolicked on the Tweeter Center lawn Tuesday night, twirling barefoot in long summer dresses to Nicks' witchy-woman music.

Yes, indeed, folks, it's that time again. Have you sent a card? Flowers? Chocolates? Made a phone call? She may say, "Oh, phooey, it's all commercial hype. I don't care about such things. " But in your heart, you know your mother is hoping to hear some platitude today. And why not? Aside from her many other contributions, this is a person who fed you for years and years. As it happens, there is lately a flurry of interest in those very eats. It's even being called "Mommy Food" - when it is not being called "Comfort Food.
