The art of preparing food or cooking is
often much neglected not that our peo

brought to te*?t. But far too much care
lessness is[allowedin preparing our plain
every dav meals.. It is just as necessary
to know how to cook salt pork as to
roast a turkey and more so, because the
turkeys come fur a part. And the art of
making bread belongs to the few. How
