Joy of Cooking (Anniversary) (Hardcover) (Irma S. Rombauer, Marion Rombauer Becker & Ethan Becker)
About this item
After 400 pounds of butter, 8,798 hours of work, and an average weight gain of 7 pounds per kitchen tester, the 75th anniversary edition of America's most well-known, classic cookbook has been published with 500 new recipes and yet another set of transformations. The much-debated 1997 edition's assumption of the chilly third-person has been banished for a return to the more popular, familiar first-person, expositions on ice cream, pickling, and cocktails are back, and there's an updated grains section. While these are just a few of the changes, homecooks and chefs alike can be reassured that the basic, beloved recipes such as Brownies Cockaigne remain intact for a new generation to enjoy. A 2006 Publishers Weekly Book of the Year.
A seventy-fifth anniversary edition of a classic guide to American cooking restores hundreds of traditional recipes and features five hundred new dishes, in a low-priced volume that includes an array of favorite casserole, dessert, and preserve options. 1,000,000 first printing.

My 35 year old JOY got left behind in a recent move. Receiving this new version was like a big Welcome Home. Every young cook should start out with this in her arsenal. It's that good.
content perfect, new format, not to my taste

Best Book for Cooks Ever. Don't care for the new format of the pages, as much as the earlier versions. The book is complete, easy to read and understand, an invaluable reference book.
