Summary expansion
The book begins with a recipe for junket, and ends with a recipe for peptonized beef tea. Six elegant photos in sepia of sliced bread, a link of sausages, and cherries on a linen tablecloth provide a setting for the poem. Photos and hand-lettered text are printed offset, while each page is embellished with a relief print of a kitchen utensil
