    Chocolatl's Note:

    This is one of a number of historical recipes I am posting from my cookbook collection. It is adapted from the 1953 edition of Adventures in Good Cooking, by traveling salesman and food critic Duncan Hines, and featuring recipes collected from around the USA. This recipe is from the Cameo Restaurant in Chicago. The recipe does not specify how much butter to use for the mushrooms or to finish.
