The front cover of the pamphlet features text reading Tempting Recipes Proven On The Wedgewood Range, beneath a color drawing of a woman a tray with meat on it. A stove is behind her. A table with a mixing bowl is in front of her. The octagonal drawing is bordered by a brown band. The primary background on the cover is black, and it is surrounded by a brown band, then a white band. The front cover also has a fold out, with a color drawing of two little girls, with one serving cookies to another. On the stove behind the girls is a teakettle and a skillet. The back cover of the pamphlet features color drawings of a platter, roasted chicken, three-layer cake, rolls, salt and pepper shakers, plus a fish on a platter. Once open, the inside front cover (unfolded) features promotional text for Wedgewood ranges (What Type Of Wedgewood Range Will Serve You Best?), with black and white photographs of six different models. The title page promotes Favorite Recipes By Mrs. Belle de Graf, All Tested And Proven On The Wedgewood Ranges. Recipes are not categorized, but includes ones for meats, fish, poultry, vegetables, breads, rolls, cakes, and desserts. Each page of recipes is topped with a black and white illustration.
