About this Item

Very early printing (with $3.75 price still intact) of what was to become an American cookbook classic includes more than 180 "quick and easy" recipes by Peg Bracken, along with a generous serving of household hints, served with humor and accompanied by Hilary Knight's delightful illustrations. ". . . Long before the microwave became a fixture of every home, "The I Hate to Cook Book" was creating a quiet revolution in millions of kitchens in the United States and abroad. Three years before Betty Friedan touched off the modern women's movement with "The Femine Mystique", Ms. Bracken offered at least a taste of liberation - from the oven, the broiler and the stove. . . ." "Some women, it is said, like to cook," Ms. Bracken's book began. "This book is not for them." - from THE NEW YORK TIMES. 176 pp. Light scuffs to DJ which has archival Brodart cover. Previous owner's inscription to FFEP. No other marks. Pages very lightly tanned. Near Fine in Very Good Dustjacket. Bookseller Inventory # 61065
