THE BOSTON COOKING SCHOOL.THE oldest and most successful schoolof cookery in the country owes its beginnings to the Women's Education Association of Boston, for in January, 1879, that association voted the sum of one hundred dollars towards the support of a cooking school. This sum was increased bysubscriptions ; and through the generosityof Wm. E. Baker, Esq ., the rent of suitablerooms was secured. On March 10, 1879,the school was opened, Miss Parloa gavedemonstration lessons, and classes wereheld of young ladies, of cooks already inservice, and on Saturdays a class was heldof girls from the public school. In this firstyear ninety-four pupils attended the school.The experiment proved so successfulthat the committee, in whose charge it hadbeen placed, determined to put it upon a permanent basis.
