California Women Who Cook
These Hints Will Help to Make Work in the Kitche an Art
Prizes for Recipes and Ideas
Who said "Cooking is a lost art?"
Evidently he has never , tried the recipes on the housekeeper's page of
the Sunday Call. California women are noted for their cookery and the
columns of this page are profiting weekly by the fruits of their experiences
in the realm of culinary art. The price of a good cook may not be above
rubies, but rubies couldn't buy her from the head of the house.
Each cook has her own distinctive touch; she has her own little set of
rules, and she cooks like no one else. Her tomatoes au gratin, for instance,
ire entirely different from the next person's and she even boils potatoes in
a way individually her own. Write in arid tell us how you cook your favorite
dishes. Give others the chance to profit by your observations and help fill
the household page with good recipes.
For the two best recipes received each week two prizes of silverware will
be awarded. Why don't you try for one? You have just as good a' chance
as some one else to be successful. Sit right down today and write out your
very best recipe and mail it to The Housekeeper, The Call, San Francisco.
Don't delay. Every minute counts, and you may win a prize.
! AWARDED A SILVER PICKLE FORK
Mr*. A.', "West, 131 "Wool Street, San Francisco
Roast Beef Marseillaise — the
ribs of a two rib roast removed
and roast dressed up to retain
the Juices. Many persons prefer the
bones left on, and while it is harder
to cut this way, it makes a Juicier bite.
Put half a cup of olive oil Into a pan
and heat It. Then add the meat, well
salted and peppered, cooking either
rare or well done as preferred. The
French'way Is well done, but that goes
according to taste.
Make a sauce as follows: Mince three
onions and color In oil. simmering until
tender. When slightly brown add two
* tablespoons of vinegar, a teaspoon of
mustard, salt and pepper and a half
pint of well flavored stock of bouillon.
Boil for three minutes and pour over
the roast, serving in a deep platter.
Beef ii In Mode — _ Juicy piece of
top sirloin cut for this purpose and
have it larded with salt pork. Brown
in an Iron pot, using butter and bacon
mixed. When the meat Is brown add
a soup bouquet, two cloves of garlic
and a large onion, whole; adding also
a calf's foot, split In several pieces.
This makes the gravy gelatinous. Add
enough water to cover, then set on the
back of the stove, simmering at the
boiling point, but do not allow to
bubble, as that extracts all the Juice

A Suggestion for the Housekeeper
Who Care*A piece of oilcloth bound
with tape, strings to tie, worn In front
of one while doing the kitchen work
saves the front of apron, and you may
always hare on a clean apron when the
door bell rings, as the oilcloth Is easily
discarded and needs only to be wiped
with a wet cloth.
