    The cover-title reads, "Kirton Town Hall recipe book". Printed on the title-page is the quotation "We may live without poetry, music and art; we may live without conscience and live without heart; we may live without friends; we may live without books, but civilized man cannot live without cooks, he may live without books # what is knowledge but grieving? He may live without hope # what is hope but deceiving? He may live without love # what is passion but pining? But where is the man that can live without dining?"
