The back cover is blank. The inside pages begin with a couple of informational pages describing the food chopper and continue with recipes that are split into three sections. The sections are American and English Dishes, German Dishes, and French Dishes. All recipes are written in paragraph form with detailed directions on how to prepare the dish.
