The Store-Closet. Garnishing And Flavoring

The various articles needed for garnishing, flavoring, etc., should be kept in glass preserve jars, and labeled. The store-closet, once furnished with the requisites for fancy dishes, will tempt the ordinary cook to a higher class of work, and contribute to the desirable end of presenting dishes that please both sight and taste, and so raise the standard of everyday cooking. It is very easy to garnish a dish or decorate a mold, and the habit once formed will lead to more ambitious attempts.
