“My Favorite Dinner,” 1912

Another authentic menu and recipes from 1912, published in the Young Woman’s Journal. This was contributed by Elizabeth Ann Claridge McCune (1862-1924), member of the YLMIA General Board, whose husband Alfred was one of the wealthier men of Mormondom. Alfred had been born in India of English military parents, and perhaps his family had acquired a taste for curry there, perhaps accounting for what seems to me to be an unusual “favorite” for Utah of the early 20th century.
