Anecdote on Cooking, October 16, 1924


Bad Fault

Miss Jane Addams said in an address to a cooking class at Hull House in Chicago:

"Some cooks are too easily satisfied. This is an almost immediate fault.

"I know a young lady who tried her hand one day at Scotch shortbread, and, my, but she was pleased with the result. A boy ran an errand for her afterward, and she gave him a piece of shortbread spread with apple butter as a reward.

"The boy returned some minutes later and said to the young lady:

"'Much obliged for the apple butter, ma'am. Here's your piece o' board back.'"
