The front cover of the pamphlet features a yellow background with red title text reading Try It This Way 58 "Meal-Making" Recipes From Mrs. Ezio Pinza, then in black lettering, Noted Hostess And Wife Of The Famous Opera, Broadway And Movie Singer. Beneath a color photograph of a silver serving tray with dishes of macaroni and spaghetti, a tri-sectioned glass sauce dish, three forks, and a decorative fruit and flower center piece is additional text reading Copyright 1950 By Keystone Macaroni Mfg. Co., Lebanon, Pa., Makers Of San Giorgio Macaroni, Spaghetti, Egg Noodles And Spaghetti Sauce. The back cover features a white and yellow background, with color drawings of boxes of San Giorgio spaghetti, elbow macaroni, and egg noodles, plus a bag of San Giorgio egg noodles. Text reads Try These Popular Slow-Cured San Giorgio Products. Fifteen products are listed. A table of contents on the inside front cover categorizes included recipes according to: Macaroni Recipes; Spaghetti Recipes; Egg Noodle Recipes; Spaghetti Sauce Recipes; Soup Recipes; and Pastina. Many of the included recipes are accompanied by color or black and white photographs. The title page includes an introductory message from Mrs. Ezio Pinza. The inside back cover encourages that buyers save medallions from San Giorgio products as premiums to be redeemed for useful products, some of which (bathroom scale, iron, alarm clock, radio, toaster, coffee pot, and baseball glove) are pictured in black and white photographs.
