Gladys Kierstead

Found this one really interesting. Gladys was born Oct 10, 1893 to Jared and Amy (Hayes) Kierstead in Essex NJ. In Nov 1919 she applies for a passport, granted in December to travel to Chili to be married. Her application notes her profession as "Cooking Teacher". She departs New York, New Years Eve 1919 aboard the Santa Ana.

[This was apparently the trip during which she learned how to make salsa. - tterrace]

Not Too Appetizing

Hygiene?? I don't think so :)

Yummmmm

REAL bacon!

Now remember my dear,

in just a few years you too can be a famous Movie Star.

Cook it well or else.

I cannot imagine eating anything prepared in such a filthy environment. Everything looks grime covered. No wonder diarrhea and other food born diseases were such a major killer back then.
