The Joy of Cooking: A New Edition

Event Navigation

From the organizers: 

Since 1931, the Rombauer-Becker family has revised and updated their bestselling cookbook—a book Julia Child called the “fundamental resource for any American cook.”

Eighty-eight years after Irma Rombauer self-published the first edition, her great-grandson, John Becker, and his wife Megan Scott, have translated this comprehensive culinary resource for a new generation of home cooks, bringing the latest version of Joy into the future while drawing on the best of its storied past. Join Becker and Scott as they share beloved recipes and how they’ve retested and updated classic recipes to gear them to modern tastes while including a large selection of vegan, vegetarian and gluten free recipes; “streamlined cooking” devoted to saving time, effort, money and clean-up in the kitchen; and new nutrition and food safety guidelines and illustrations. Food & Wine’s Kat Kinsman moderates.

A book signing follows the event.
