Sample Text:

He that eats and saves sets the table twice.”

Athenaeus affirms,
Worthy tribute to bring,
That a man among men,
Who can cook is a king.

Now if that is the case,
And ’tis plain to be seen,
A cook among women
Must walk as a queen.

How to Cook Beefsteak.

Pound well your meat until the fibres break;
Be sure that next in turn you broil the steak;
(Good coal in plenty; nor a moment leave).
Now turn it over, this way and then that,
The lean should be quite rare, not so the fat,
The platter now which will the juice receive;
Put on the butter, place on it your meat,
Salt, pepper, turn it o’er, then serve and eat.

Mrs. Robert McMahan.
