Excerpt from front flap: "Even if you never cook any of Mrs. Fisher's dishes, you can savor them vicariously--the way they look, smell and taste, their very soul--simply by reading her eloquent and equally flavorful prose. ... Here are dishes for every course of every meal from the simplest to the most esoteric: titbits, appetizers, breads, pastries, fish and fowl, meats, soups, vegetables, desserts, and a whole chapter on that great American phenomenon--the casserole." The Contents are listed as follows: "The Anatomy of a Recipe," "Teasers and Titbits (appetizers)," "Especially of the Evening (soups)," "How to Spring Like a Flea (fish)," "Some Seeds of This Planet (rice, etc.)," "Once a Tramp, Always... (hunger and enjoyment)," "A Recipe for Happy Hens (eggs)," "The Trouble with Tripe (innards)," "The Downward Path (sauces)," "A Proverbial Matter (meats)," "Having Fallen into Place (vegetables)," "Nor Censure nor Disdain (casseroles)," "One Way to Stay Young (salads)," "Questionable Crumpets and Such (breads)," "A Plethora of Pudding (desserts)," "Some Ways to Laugh (drinks)," and "The Secret Ingredient (pickles, etc.)."
