|"Cooking means the knowledge of
Medea and Circe, and of Calypso and Helen, and of Rebekah, and of the
Queen of Sheba. It means the knowledge of all fruits, and herbs, and
balms, and spices, and of all that is healing and sweet in fields and
groves, and savory in meats; it means carefulness, and inventiveness,
and watchfulness, and willingness, and readiness of appliance; it means
much tasting and no wasting; it means English thoroughness, and French
art, and Arabian hospitality; it means, in fine, that you are to be
perfect and always 'ladies'—'loaf-givers.'"
