Join The Good Cook Book Club for a great deal on JOY OF COOKING, 75TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION
“Irma Rombauer self-published the very first Joy of Cooking back in 1931, and now, 75 years later, it’s absolutely one of the most influential American cookbooks in American history. Her daughter, Marion Rombauer Becker, and grandson, Ethan Becker, joined her in her work, making it a real family affair.
“Connoisseurs of Joy noticed the 1997 version was a little more ‘chef-like’—less geared towards home cooks; but in this, the 75th anniversary edition, the focus is squarely back to home cooking. The voice and spirit, definitely, are more in keeping with the original notes from Irma, and you’ll find favorites they dropped or abridged in the last edition: There’s more casseroles, more family fare, more convenience foods—no more ‘everything should be made from scratch’! I like the spirit and reliability of this new edition, which, while it includes lots of ‘new’ (as in, 500 new recipes), also draws heavily on the old. Well done!”
