Violet Sanborn Tells of Cookery in Foreign Lands (Des Moines, Iowa) The Costume lectures given by Mrs. F. Violet Sanborn in the Drill hall of the Coliseum this week have been the most popular lectures ever given in this city. Each afternoon a packed hall has greeted her appearance on the platform. Yesterday afternoon in Japanese costume, Mrs. Sanborn told the women of the cookery of that country. The lecturer made a decided hit with the audience. Mrs. Sanborn has learned her foreign cookery from traveling in the countries and she teaches nothing from theory. Her French cookery was learned from a noted chef in one of the leading hotels of Paris where Mrs. Sanborn was staying when a girl. Mrs. Sanborn has acquired a reputation all over the country and there is probably no better authority on cooking. (Montana Press) Mrs. Sanborn has spent considerable time in different countries over the world, learning the dishes which are peculiar to the various people and has given many interesting talks upon the cooking of the different nations and the difficulties which she sometimes encountered in obtaining the recipes for them Figure Old Salem Chautauqua, Petrsburg, Illinois, School of Domestic Science. (Illinois Press) Mrs. F. Violet Sanborn of New York, writer, lecturer, demonstrator and instructor in Domestic Science, will conduct this most important department. Mrs. Sanborn is recognized as one of the greatest authorities on foods, their preparation, chemistry of and medicinal properties, all as applied to the human system.

Cooking by electricity is the newest and most practical method (Grand Rapids Press) Mrs. Sanborn is a woman of charming personality, and is a talented and highly cultured lady. She has given years of her life to the study of domestic science. (Dubuque Daily Times-Journal) These lectures are intended to impart a knowledge of the laws of health and understanding of the sanitary requirements of the house the study of values, both absolute and relative of the various articles used in the home, including food, the wise expenditure of money, time and energy, the scientific principles underlying the selection and preparation of food and the care of children, both physical and mental. (Nashville, Tennessee.) Not a crank nor a theorist, she combines the strictly practical with the strictly scientific in producing results which seem to the unthinking the effects of magic. Working for the ultimate good of all mankind, she starts with the true foundation—the home—and elevates the whole mass by raising its supports. She is herself a home maker, and has studied the question with the help of practical experience. She has correctly decided that to raise the level of the home she must first make the home an institution. As the duties of the home life are an important factor in this, she has devoted her attention to these, and by her science has raised them from a drudgery to an exact science. She has been disseminating her doctrine all over the country, and the results have fully justified her conclusions.
