Star-News Cooking School To Open Here On Tuesday -*-- + _ Miss Ruth Chambers Will Conduct ‘Pageant Of Foods’ At NHHS FAMILY FAVORITES AT THE COOKING SCHOOL Father — Broiled steak and French fried potatoes (first and third days). Mother — Old-fashioned lemon pie (second day). Grandmother — Burnt Sugar cake (second day). Grandfather — Hunter’s soup (second day). Daughter—Creamed drief beef with noodles (third day). Son (Boy Scout)—Squaw corn (4tli day). Everybody — Frosted orange cookies (third day), “Pageant of Foods” Cooking school, with Miss Ruth Chambers as lecturer, which the Star-News is presenting at the High school audi torium, consists of four daily ses sions, and is the result of months of planning and preparation. The main object was to condense into the four-day program the high lights of a complete course in cook ery, including selection, menu-plan ning and serving as well as all methods of cooking the array of food which goes to make up the well-balanced diet available to the average American housewife. Because of the importance of meat and the fact that the majority of meals are planned about this food, special attention was given to all cuts of beef, pork, veal and lamb, not overlooking liver, kidneys and heart which rank so high among health-giving foods. Each Recipe Tested Hundreds of recipes were studied and passed upon before the final selections for “Pageant cf Foods” were made. These were some of the considerations: First of all, each dish had to be excellent in itself, nutritious, fine in flavor, tempting alike to the eye andthe palate. Expert “tasters,” men as well as women, judged the food as the recipes were tested. Next, the food must be available in most markets throughout the year. Exotic foods, hard to obtain, unknown to most American cooks, were ruled out. The school had to be practical. Then the dishes must be those which could be prepared by the woman of average ability in cook ing, following clearly written and very exact recipes printed in the booklets. Concoctions such as only a chef with special tools could prepare are not found on “Pageant of Foods” program. Economy Recipes Included The course includes examples of all the methods of meat cookery, roasting, broiling, panbroiling, braising, stewing and cooking in water The instruction is based on fundamental principles which ap ply not only to one dish but to others of that type. Economy and ease of preparation were taken into account. Ways of cooking less demanded cuts of meat are shown, a help to the housewife who must watch her food bills. Tempting ways to serve left-overs also appeal to the thrifty. Oven meals and one-dish meals which are great time and effort savers are included on the program. An Aristocratic Stew Among the most tempting and practical of the recipes are several for unusual stews. mere is an oven stew which is very pretty. Tomato cooked with the beef gives it the color of corned beef. A ‘‘beei stew aristocrat” is given style by being served on whole cabbage leaves added to the meat during the last fifteen minutes of cooking time. Lamb chunklets are cooked in a highly spiced oriental stew. Whole Family Pleased Another consideration was that the program must include dishes to please the whole family. Dad will “go for” a broiled steak, for instance the pin-bonesteak on the third day’s program, especially if it is served with the French fried potatoes, prepared according to the instructions on the first day. Mother is sure to be interested in a new way to make a very flaky crust for an old-fashioned lemon pie. Grandmother will find the burnt sugar cake just the kind of treat she used to make and she’ll want to try her hand at this new version. Grandfather will enjoy "hunter’s soup.” It is just as good as the hearty, nutritious soups they used to serve in his youth, and it fits neatly into a modern menu. Daughter will find the creamed dried beef, with pimiento and pickles cut into it, just right to serve with Chinese noodles or on toast as a supper dish for her crowd. Son will be interested in "squaw corn,” especially if he is a Boy Scout, or if he goes on camping trips. It’s grand when made over a campfire. Everybody in the family will be reaching for the frosted orange cookies. But every family may choose its own favorites. There’s plenty to select from in the “Pageant of Foods” array.
