The Keynote Of Successful Dishes


The front cover features a color photographic illustration of a crock pot dish filled with beef stew along with vegetables behind and beside it. The title "The Keynote of Successful Dishes" is written inside a white box consisting of red and black lettering. The back cover contains vegetables such as cauliflower, carrots and onions plus a bottle of Maggi's Seasoning in the lower left corner. The inside pages are dedicated to various recipes that use Maggi's Seasoning in them. The main categories for the recipes include soups, meat dishes, gravies and sauces, stews, vegetables, salads, dressings, canapes, and sandwiches. All recipes entail a list of the ingredients needed plus detailed directions on how to prepare the dish. Throughout the inside pages there are various black and white illustrations of prepared dishes from the recipes listed. The back end page features the phrases "Always keep Maggi's Seasoning within easy reach in the kitchen..." and "Not a spicy sauce or condiment." Both have explanatory paragraphs following them.
