From the foreword: “Favorite Dishes is due to the fact that the noble women who have labored for the best interests of mankind and womankind, in the development of the Women’s Department of the World’s Columbia Exposition, found time to contribute this collection of recipes, as a means of enabling the compiler to open an additional avenue for women to provide the necessary funds to pay the expenses of a visit to the Exposition.” Hardcover.
