Excerpt from New Orleans Cook Book Man may live without books, What is knowledge but grieving? He may live without hope What is h0pe but deceiving? He may live without love, What is passion but pining? But where is the man that can live without dining? The promoters of this modest enterprise hesitate to claim for it that it fills a long felt want; there are other cook books containing vastly more information in which the resources and products of the Frigid Zone and the Tropics are drawn on for the purpose of whetting the human appetite. The sphere of this little book is more limited, but we feel that it will appeal with great force to its limited circle, for it is especially adapted to their wants - the ingredients called for in the recipes given are always to be had in sea son in our own markets, and many of the appetizing dishes for which New Orleans and Louisiana are noted, are here in described. It has not been the aim in compiling these recipes, to tell all we know, or all that our friends know, but out of the generous responses to our requests for two or three of vour very best, we have selected these as the best of the best. Very few, if any, are original - many have been tried and tested by the mothers and grandmothers of the donors, while others are more modern - thoroughly up-to-date; but each recipe carries the enthusiastic re commendation of her whose name is subscribed thereto, and one has but to read over these names to be convinced that we are not too optimistic in expressing the belief that this collection will please all who make use of it.
