DO MEN EXCEL INJ.ITCHEN?
Some Reasons are Given by the Chef
of the Carlton Hotel, London,
to Prove that Cooks of the
Masculine Gender Know
their Business Better
than their Sisters.
Cooking -is undoubtedly a fine art,
and an accomplished chef is as much
of an artist in his particular branch of
work as a painter or a sculptor.
There is as much difference be
tween good cooking and bad as be
tween a symphony performed by a
great master on a first-class instru
ment and a so-called melody played
by some out of tune barrel organ.
There is absolutely no question as
to who makes the better cook-a man
or a Woman. If man did not excel,
why should all the chief 'hotels and
restaurants of both British and 'Con
tinental cities place a man at tihe head
of their culinary dep-artemnts?
Women hold equally good positions
in most vocations as -men now, but a
'female chef, a woman "boss," as you
English say, idoes not reign in any
large kitchen, says Mons A Escoffer,
- chef of the Carhon Hotel, London, in
In the ordinary domestic duties .it is
very hard to find a man equalling,
much less. excelling a woman-it is
her s>here in life, but cooking rises
far above a mere domestic duty; it is
as I jhave said before, a fine art. The
reason, -that in cooking the palm has
always been awarded to a "mere man"
is not far to seek.
It is nor because man is more epicu
Tean than woman; for this, thoug1h
maintained by woman, is not a fact.
Woman is quite as fastidious over her
food as the ordinary man and bestows
as -much thought over her meals as he
It is simply that man is more thor
ough in his work, and thoroughness
is at The root of alI good cooking,
as oi everything else.
A .man is more particular over the
various little -details which -are neces
sary to make up a really perfect dish.
Take for examiple an Indian curry,
containing so many iHttile trifling in
gredients-all of which are equally
important to make a perfect dish
whTen finished. The loss of one would
mean the spociling of the others, and
the complete ruin of the flavor of the
Nothing Too Unimportant.;
A man knows this, and will shave
them all. Nothing is too unimport
anj for this consideration. A woman,
_-on -the other hand, will manage with
what s'he 'has got handy. This is very
nice and~ obliging of 'her, no doubt,
'but it eventally spoils her cooking,
and the 'dish is not a success.
One of tlhe chief faults in a woman's
cooking is her 'want of accuracy over
the smaller -items-th.e exact amolunt
of flavoring, t'he right condiments to
each dish, and 'that is one of the chief
reasons why. her cooking pales before
that orf a man .and makes ihis dishes
preferable on all occasions to hers.
Even in 'the case of amateurs, a
man's cooking is more successful than
a woman's for these reasons, and also
because he takes more pride in hi.
work of preparing -a tempting repast
A great many people think that an
one can cook who happens to possesS
a shilling cookery book and a few pots
and pans. What a fallacy. A greai
dhef is born like any other great ar
tist-of.course, 'he must learn his arl
as they do theirs, but he has the natu
ral gift for his work, even before he
To a chef -his work is a "joy for
ever." And he invents new dishes
with as much pride and more as 2
modiste or a milliner creates some
new gown -or hat, and 'he carefully
s:udies the trifling details of each sep
arate flavor before he sends his ne-w
masterpiece of .culinary art before his
Women rarely care to take much
trouble over cooking, especially wher
they are not acting as professiona,
cooks. The housewife in England
wfio does ber own cooking considers
it a waste of time to spend much ol
the day -in her kitchen arranging fot
the family's meals.
Other things -are far more attract
ive in themselves, claim her atten
ti-on, and she appears ito forget thai
upon her care in preparing and cook
ing tihe food depends the digestion ol
thusband and children, and that upon
their digestion hangs much of theii
health and happiness.
In France this is not so. There th-e
motther of a fairly well-to-do family
does not consider it a trouble -to ar
range all ithe meals herself, and is in
consequence a far better cook itha
her English sister of the -same class.
When women have learned that nc
trifle is -oo small for their -considera
tion -in the matter of cooking, then we
may find -them -at the head of -the
kitchens of the chief clubs and ihotels,
but ufitil then there will -certainly be

Why Birds Go South.
"I once asked -a confirmed told bach

the New Idea Woman's Magazine
for -November, "why he did not mar

"It is usually thought that the de

or stayng is not that of cold, but o:
food; and for ti-s .there is -doubtless
considerable eviden-ce, it would neet
to be shown that the food is lacking

"In the autmun of 1904, in th<
groves which skirt the rivers ir
South Dakota, wild grapes were un
as cheap a~
usually abundant. The autumn was sc
long and dry that they cured upon th(
'Vines, and were sweet, .somewha
juicy, and very palatable during the
emire winter. In these groves ]
found companies of Wilson's blue
birds in early January, when the mer

grees below zero. The flickers als'c
were numerous, though it is not un
common for a few of them to wintei
in the North."
In opposition -to this facE, Mr
Thoms notes that although every win

buds, etc.. remains on the bushes, yei

conclusion, Therefore, that "there is z
migrating instinct which has its sea
son, just as there -is a mating instinc'
whicfhifhas its season; and if, owing tc
pleasant conditions, that season passes
wthout the birds being moved to gc
sou,th, they do not go at all."
