Burning Ring of Fire

The Rawliegh’s Picture Treasury of Good Cooking bears an uncanny resemblance to Dante’s Inferno in that it too represents the nine circles of hell. Consider the following:

Circle One: LIMBO

Blueberry Pie

Circle Two: LUST

Chili Con Carne

Circle Three: GLUTTONY

Tuna Filled Cheese-Noodle Ring

Circle Four: GREED

Swedish Coffee Ring

Circle Five: WRATH

Angel Food Cake

Circle Six: HERESY

Molded Vegetable Salad

Circle Seven: VIOLENCE

Spaghetti and Meat Balls

Circle Eight: FRAUD

Cottage Cheese-Vegetable Ring

Circle Nine: TREACHERY

Creme Vichysoisse

Burn, Baby, Burn.
