Irma Rombauer self-published the first Joy of Cooking in 1931 with the small insurance payout she received after her husband committed suicide during the Great Depression. Suddenly, society wives who used to enjoy a kitchen staff no longer had the money to employ them and began cooking for themselves. The instruction "stand facing the stove" was a bit more pragmatic than we realize. In 1936, the first commercial edition was published by Bobbs-Merrill. Marion Rombauer Becker, Irma's daughter, joined the Joy dynasty and revised and updated each subsequent edition until 1975. That edition was the first after Irma's death and was completely Marion's. Her son, Ethan Becker, has returned the book to the family's voice, revising the 1975 edition for the 75th Anniversary Edition.From Publishers Weekly:
Part of Scribner's "All About" series, adapted from the Joy of Cooking cookbooks, this volume includes dozens of cookie recipes, divided by type: drop, bar, rolled, filled, and the like. The recipes span the traditional-Oatmeal Raisin and Chocolate Chip both make an appearance-to innovative entries like Chocolate-Coated Mocha Biscotti. The recipes are easy enough for even a fledgling baker to follow, and they're accompanied by inspiring full-color photographs. Becker, the grandson of the founder of the Joy of Cooking franchise, includes tips on how to package cookies for travel, how to turn Christmas cookies into ornaments and even how to bake cookies at high altitudes. But the best proof of how all-around useful Becker wants this resource to be is that he includes low fat, and delicious, versions of most of his popular cookies.
