Editor's Note. There is no claim to full authenticity here. Some of the dishes are mentioned frequently by the doughboy's in their letters and diaries. Others are best guesses based on hints and clues followed by a search for credible recipes for solving the puzzle. Of course, we welcome advice, corrections and new recipes.

Sources and thanks: Ray Mentzer and Glenn Hyatt provided their usual great support with the photos. Each recipe card lists its source or contributor. MH
