Written by Irma Starkloff Rombauer, The Joy of Cooking was first tested and illustrated by her daughter, Marion Rombauer Becker. Subsequently it was revised and enlarged through Marion?s efforts and those of her architect husband John Becker. Their sons?Ethan, with his Cordon Bleu and camping experiences, and Mark, with his interest in natural foods?have reinforced Joy in many ways.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
The Joy of Cooking has made cooking a truly satisfying experience for me. But it's much more than a recipe book for great food. If you ever wanted to know how to choose fresh fish at the market, or how to use foil when baking or any of the hundreds of questions you have when cooking but have no one to ask, you'll find many answers here.This book is a treasure trove for cooks or would be cooks. It encourages you to choose the best ingredients, the freshest herbs when cooking for your family. The dishes are simply delicious with a high nutritive content. This book is simply a must buy

I ordered this volume because I inadvertently gave my copy to the library book sale--not missing it until I wanted a favorite recipe. However, when this copy arrived, it was a newer edition and no longer contained the recipe that I wanted. I kept it because usually I do not get rid of recipe books--except Betty Crocker!

This book is tried and true. I just tossed my other "new" cookbooks and got a new , second, copy of this.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I purchased this book because I thought it was a revised and expanded edition of the Joy of Cooking book I already have and enjoy. The REVISED and EXPANDED words on the cover lead me to believe I was purchasing even more and different recipes than the original, but it is the exact book! I also purchased the other one stating the same misleading words in bold print on the cover. I am very disappointed and cannot return them because I didnt make this discovery within the 30 day limit. I believe it should be clearly stated that these are merely paperback editions of the hard back Joy of Cooking which I have purchased several copies as gifts for family and friends as it is a wonderful cookbook.
