Nice Firm Clean copy ! Light general wear. 138 pages. Benedict first entered business behind her home at Third and Ormsby in 1893 in a kitchen that was built behind the residence. She sent out 500 circulars to friends, offering 'to take orders, from a cup of chocolate to a large reception, sandwiches on short order, cakes large or small, trays and dainty dishes for the invalid.' The business quickly grew. Second edition of The Blue Ribbon Cook Book. Undated, however, in her preface ( 'After 19 years of study, teaching and catering' ), adding 1893 to 19 years gives 1912.
