and Cooking Utensil
75th Anniversary Edition
Seventy-five years ago, a St. Louis widow named Irma
Rombauer took all her savings and self-published a book
called Joy of Cooking. Her daughter Marion tested recipes
and drew the illustrations, and they sold their mother-daughter project from Irma’s apartment. Today, nine revisions
later, Joy of Cooking—selected by the New York Public
Library as one of the 150 most important and influential
books of the 20th century—has taught tens of millions
of people to cook, helped feed and delight millions beyond
that, answered countless kitchen and food questions,
and averted many a cooking crisis.
Ethan Becker, Marion’s son, leads the latest generation of
Joy, still a family affair, into the 21st century with a 75th-
anniversary edition that draws upon the best of the past
while keeping its eye on the way we cook now. In addition to 500 brand-new recipes, this Joy is
filled with many recipes from all previous editions—for a grand total of 4,000—retested and
reinvented for today’s tastes.

Cooking books, aprons
