The front shows two children dressed as chefs. One holds a large copper sauce pan while the other pours ingredients from a basket into the pan on a gold background. The caption at the bottom reads, "Comment on fait la soupe." The back has a promo for Franco American Food Co.'s New York French Soups. There is an illustration of a chef tasting from a pot on the right. Along the right side reads, "Quoi de meilleur qu'un bon Potage quand l'appetit manque," while the left side reads, "Un diner sans Potage est un grosse Faute, contre le savoir virre et l'estomac."
