Is there a treatise on Colde Pizza, too?

OK, what I meant to say was, warm as in heated as for wassail, lamb's  
wool, possets, etc., or simply not chilled? Conversely, does cold  
equal chilled or simply not heated.

Or are all things assumed equal and warmer is just better than cooler,  
in general?

I could understand an empirical statement made in those terms...
