Major Joseph Tilden was in his time one of the most famous Bohemians and epicureans of the Pacific Coast. Ever since his death his many friends have been trying to learn the culinary secrets which made a repast of his devising so delicious. He had given his recipes to but few, and those few his most intimate friends and fellow spirits. One of the most favored of his old companions has given this complete collection of his recipes for publication.

Show Excerpt

Baked Sole

Skin the slack side of the fish and lay in a baking pan. Brush with beaten egg, sprinkle with bread crumbs and pour over them some melted butter. Cover the fish with a layer of thin slices of pork or bacon. Add one-half pint of water and bake half an hour. To make the sauce, take the liquor from the baking pan, add to it salt, pepper, cayenne, the juice of one lime, a wine glass of sherry, a tablespoonful of mushroom or walnut catsup, and a piece of butter the size of an egg with a little flour rubbed into it. Allow it to boil once and pour over the fish.

Flounders a la Magouze

Place several fish into a baking pan with a glass of white wine, salt, pepper, and an ounce of butter. While they are cooking break three eggs into half a pint of cream, and beat until it is light. When the fish is done remove them from the pan and stir the eggs and cream
