Overview

This book contains directions for cooking in its various branches,from the simplest forms to high-class dishes and ornamental pieces;a group of New England dishes furnished by Susan Coolidge;and a few receipts of distinctively Southern dishes. It gives alsothe etiquette of dinner entertainments-how to serve dinners-tabledecorations, and many items relative to household affairs.

Also, if one finds oneself neighbor to some person for whom one has a personal antipathy, it must not be allowed to interfere with the general pleasure; and should such a situation occur, there is nothing to do but to make the best of it, and conceal from the hostess the mistake she has unwittingly made--

And do as adversaries do in law, Strive mightily, but eat and drink as friends.

Under these circumstances the discovery may possibly be made that an unfriendly person is more agreeable than was supposed, and a pleasanter relationship may be established.

[Sidenote: Time.]

Two hours is the extreme limit of time that should be given to a dinner; one hour and a quarter, or a half, is preferable. Eight courses served quickly, but without seeming haste, require as much time as most people can sit at the table without fatigue.
