His position as experimental cook and teacher of cooking in the Nurses' Training School has also shown the importance of getting out something that may serve as a guide to teachers in presenting this subject before classes. Hence the present work is largely designed to serve as a manual for those who may be called upon to teach the subject in sanitariums and other educational institutions; and with this idea in view, a complete list of twelve lessons, so arranged as to cover in an outline way all the more important points of the subject, constitute a valauble feature of the book.

The First Edition having been all sold in less than a year, and the many warm commendations received for it, have encouraged the publishers to issue this thoroughly revised and enlarged edition, with the hope that it may be of assistance to those who are struggling to bring the teaching of this subject in our sanitariums and elsewhere into full accord with sound principles.
