The Culinary Legacy of Joy of Cooking

Wednesday, March 28, 2018 at 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm

Starr Foundation Hall, Room UL102, University Center 63 Fifth Avenue, New York, NY 10003

Starting as a modest self-published recipe-collection during the Great Depression,  Joy of Cooking rose to become not just a celebrated American cookbook, but arguably the American cookbook. Home cooks throughout the United States came to feel an affectionate bond with the women behind the book, Irma Rombauer and her daughter, Marion Rombauer Becker. Successive editions over more than eighty-five years tell a story of continuities and changes in American kitchens — who’s done the cooking, what’s come into or gone out of fashion, what people want from the acts of cooking and eating. Join a panel of culinary historians and cookbook authors as they share insights about this iconic culinary document and its begetters, within the larger context of American cuisine.
