Mystery Dinner and My Winter Workshop

We are draw­ing near­er and near­er to an appre­ci­a­tion of the pow­er which Cook­ery wields in the preser­va­tion of health, but this awak­en­ing as to its val­ue has been too tardy, indeed, it has been from a slum­ber of cen­turies. Not that good Cook­ery has not been prac­tised from time immemo­r­i­al, but its recog­ni­tion from a sci­en­tif­ic point of view is almost with­in our own day; and even at the present time, dietet­ics, or that depart­ment of med­i­cine which relates to food and diet, is only grad­u­al­ly assum­ing a posi­tion which is des­tined ulti­mate­ly to become sec­ond to none.

The fre­quent expe­ri­ence of the cook liv­ing in the coun­try or sub­urbs these days to receive unex­pect­ed vis­its from friends who are tour­ing in auto­mo­biles, and she finds she must have some­thing attrac­tive, dain­ty and nour­ish­ing ready at a moment’s notice to sup­ple­ment the cup of tea or cof­fee so wel­come after a hot, dusty trip.

It is a wise plan to keep a vari­ety of Sum­mer Sausage on hand, as in a very few min­utes deli­cious sand­wich­es may be pre­pared with this, these sand­wich­es hav­ing the charm of nov­el­ty. It is impos­si­ble to deal in a short arti­cle with the many vari­eties of Sum­mer Sausage, but there are three or four which can be touched upon. To have a thor­ough under­stand­ing of their good­ness one must not only read about them but taste them.

Although a meal sat­is­fies your hunger you should have dessert, because the edu­cat­ed palate craves that par­tic­u­lar spice as a prop­er fin­ish. Sci­en­tists tell us that a din­ner digests bet­ter because of a tasty dessert, which, they say, gives the final stim­u­lus nec­es­sary to dis­pose of the food pre­vi­ous­ly received.

The sim­ple desserts are the best desserts, and none is more pleas­ing to the eye and the palate or so eas­i­ly made or so fre­quent­ly served in an imper­fect man­ner, than cus­tards.

With a sup­ply of good eggs in the pantry the cook need nev­er be at a loss for a tasty cus­tard, and if she is wise enough to buy Armour’s Fan­cy Selects when she orders eggs from her mar­ket man their good­ness will be reflect­ed in her desserts. Aside from their good­ness their extra large size will always rec­om­mend their use to the wise house­wife. They come packed in an extra large car­ton.

In Aus­tralia some ref­er­ence to the sub­ject of iced drinks is nec­es­sar­i­ly required, for they are in great request dur­ing the hot sea­son. There is a con­sid­er­able amount of diver­si­ty of opin­ion as to their good and bad effects, but it will be found that the expe­ri­ence of most med­ical men is that when used in mod­er­a­tion they great­ly relieve thirst and are not inju­ri­ous.

This, indeed, is my own belief, and were it not for the abuse of iced drinks, the same opin­ion would be held almost uni­ver­sal­ly. Amer­i­ca is the coun­try of coun­tries in which the inor­di­nate use of ice has gained for it a rep­u­ta­tion which it has nev­er deserved. Ice, says George Augus­tus Sala, is the alpha and omega of social life in the Unit­ed States. At the hotels, first-class or oth­er­wise, the bev­er­age par­tak­en of at din­ner is most­ly iced water.

Every repast, in fact, begins and ends with a glass of iced water. And more than this, imag­ine car­ry­ing the employ­ment of ice to such an extent that it cul­mi­nates in that gas­tro­nom­i­cal curios­i­ty, a Baked Ice! The “Alas­ka” is a Baked Ice, of which the inte­ri­or is an ice cream. This lat­ter is sur­round­ed by an exte­ri­or of whipped cream, made warm by means of a Sala­man­der. The tran­si­tion from the hot out­side enve­lope to the frozen inside is painful­ly sud­den, and not like­ly to be attend­ed with ben­e­fi­cial effect. But the abuse of a good thing is no argu­ment what­ev­er against its use in a mod­er­ate and ratio­nal man­ner.

They are the sta­ple diet in many for­eign coun­tries and in the Armour brand the native fla­vor­ing has been done with remark­able faith­ful­ness—so much so that large quan­ti­ties are shipped from this coun­try every week to the coun­tries where they orig­i­nat­ed.
