Tea Room Management
This little cutie, Cooking for Profit touts itself as being the First Practical Hand-Book for Tea Rooms. Published in 1922 and written by Alice Bradley, she pulls from her expertise as the Principal of Miss Farmer's School of Cookery in Boston and culinary editor for the "Woman's Home Companion". In this book, she covers the money-making opportunities to be found in food service where women are shown how to establish and conduct a profitable business. Original ideas and recipes are included. Chapters include specialty cooking, cake and cake making, catering for social occasions, special luncheons and suppers and dinner parties. A complete chapter is dedicated to tea room management, with the beginning statement that interest in opening tea rooms is wide spread, from the Atlantic to the Pacific.
