12 Days of Cookbooks: Joy of Cooking

Day 8…

This is going to be a really short post. Why, well look at the title. What more could possibly be said about one of the most reviewed, written about and discussed cookbooks out there? That’s right, the Joy of Cooking.

The 75th anniversary edition of this kitchen classic contains 4,500 recipes in 1,152 pages. It’s BIG. It’s intimidating at first and it’s loaded with culinary information that you can use for a lifetime.

If it’s possible that you know someone who doesn’t own a copy of the Joy of Cooking (I would find that hard to believe), you should right that wrong this holiday season. You might was to consider delivering this one yourself, don’t want to weight down Santa too much.

  1. Food o' del Mundo

    Unfortunately I know several people without this kitchen bible! I’m grateful my mother sent all of us kids off into the great big world with a copy of one. I try to tell the youngsters these days to get a copy and they look at me like I have three heads.
