  • Miss Peet, who will be in Medford Monday to personally conduct the Mail Tribune Home Economics School, believes in good, old-fashioned, plain cooking. She says a wholesome dinner prepared at home, and eaten at home, rather than one purchased for the most part from the delicatessen shop or eaten at a restaurant, has the real old time spirit and is more thoroughly enjoyed by the whole family.

  • Miss Peet, who will be in Medford Monday to personally conduct the Mail Tribune Home Economics School, believes in good, old-fashioned, plain cooking. She says a wholesome dinner prepared at home, and eaten at home, rather than one purchased for the most part from the delicatessen shop or eaten at a restaurant, has the real old time spirit and is more thoroughly enjoyed by the whole family.
    Miss Peet believes in labor saving methods and devices. She believes in new ideas in home making and housekeeping, but she believes in the old home spirit. She feels that woman has no higher work to do than making and caring for a home, and thinks that anything science or labor or invention has to offer to make better homes is worth while. She believes in the home making, housekeeping woman and not the home keeping, housework drudge. She says there is a wide distinction which it is possible for any intelligent woman to make. She believes that real home making and efficient housekeeping require the highest type of intelligence. In her cooking classes she aims to emphasize and encourage the home making spirit; to offer helpful and workable suggestions for easy and economical housekeeping, and to show just how the use of intelligent effort makes for efficiency in housework just as it does in business.
    Miss Peet's lecture-demonstrations grow out of a large experience as home maker, housekeeper, cookery expert, lecturer and demonstrator. She has a close acquaintance with real housekeeping problems; she has long had an enviable reputation as an exceptionally fine cook; she has studied household economics from many sources and standpoints; she has lectured in many cities in America and in other countries; she has met famous cooks and fine keepers of this and other nationalities and it would certainly seem that with all of this experience, study and travel, it would be difficult to find a housekeeping tangle she could not unravel.
    Miss Peet has given particular attention to the food question. She has studied the chemistry of foods, food values, cost of production and the best methods of preparation. She will suggest methods which never fail.
