Lines Written in the Fannie Farmer Cookbook
You won’t become a gourmet cook By studying our Fannie’s book-- Her thoughts on Food & Keeping House Are scarcely those of L’evi-Strauss. Nevertheless, you’ll find, Frank dear, The basic elements are here. And if a problem should arise: The Souffl’e fall before your eyes, Or strange things happen to the Rice --You know I love to give advice. Elizabeth Christmas, 1971 * Forbidden word ** Forbidden phrase P.S. Fannie should not be underrated; She has become sophisticated. She’s picked up many gourmet* tricks Since the edition of ’96.
