"Save the wheat" is the call that has been sent out from Washington to the housekeepers of America. In response to this urgent plea, this new War Edition of the Corn Cook Book containing 200 recipes has been compiled, showing the various ways that this valuable cereal can be utilized so as to save wheat for ourselves and our Allies. Corn is the American Indian's greatest gift to civilization. The early colonists used it to a large extent. It is still one of the most important and delectable foods of the South and the New England States. No one who has tasted the real Southern Cora Pone will ever forget its deliciousness.
Many professional men have written on this subject; but very few of them have possessed at once the theory and practice of the art. I must own, that my severity towards my apprentices, and my unremitting care in keeping the inferiors who attended me, in a state of constant assiduity in what concerned the cleanliness of the kitchen as well as of the larder, has been of the utmost advantage to myself as well as to them: I have the satisfactory reward of seeing all my pupils held in the highest estimation by persons of the greatest distinction. I shall in this edition, as I did in the former, say, that Cookery is an art appreciated by only a very few individuals, and which requires, in addition to a most diligent and studious application, no small share of intellect, and the strictest sobriety and punctuality: without the latter, the very best Cook is unavoidably deficient in the delicacies of his profession: there are cooks, and cooks, as there are painters, and painters: the difficulty lies in finding the perfect one; and I dare assert, that the nobleman who has in his service a thorough good one, ought to be as proud of the acquisition, as of possessing in his gallery a genuine production of the pencil of Rubens, Raphael, or Titian.

This little book goes forth as the result of the earnest effort of its authors to meet the need felt by so many, for a concise, well arranged, practical, all around book of rules for the average housewife. These recipes are the favorites of the most painstaking, economical cooks we know. The appeal to your interest is based upon the intrinsic merit of the contents, which are offered with our strongest recommendation.
In presenting these pages to the public, I do so at the earnest solicitation of many of my pupils who would have in book form my recipes and suggestions. I therefore put into print this pamphlet of recipes where the formula is given, followed by the explicit directions of how to put together the ingredients: with such notes and hints as may be of value to the housewife. The directions are not theories, but the fruits of practical experience. The arrangement of the subject-matter is designed to make the book a household reference book that may be depended upon.
