The general equipment needed for demonstration consists of: 
(1) A table at which the demonstrator works. An ordinary 
kitchen table 2x4 feet and of comfortable working height is desirable. 
(2) A stove. A three-burner gas plate or oil stove, with a portable 
oven for baking, usually proves sufficient. It may be placed at the 
right of the work table. 
(3) A table or movable cupboard for supplies and clean imple- 
ments. This is most conveniently placed behind and to the left of 
the work table. 
(4) A table for soiled dishes, etc. This may be placed behind the 
worker at the right. 
(5) If the food prepared is to be sampled. by the audience, a 
small extra table for serving is convenient, though not necessary. 
It may be placed at the left in front of the supply table. 
Each demonstrator should arrange with those in charge of the 
meeting for the supplies and the cooking and serving dishes required 
by the recipes she plans to work out. 
The recipes given are merely suggestive. More than can be used 
at a demonstration have been given, to afford opportunity for selec- 
tion. It is especially desirable that the demonstrator use foods that 
are locally available, and that she emphasize the urgent need of 
saving transportation. In the later lessons especially there is an 
opportunity to show the use of the vegetables and fruits that are at 
hand, and the different ways of using those that have been canned 
and dried at home.
