The Joy Of Cooking
One of the best known and most used cookbooks ever, The Joy of Cooking was originally self-published by Irma Rombauer in 1931 who collected recipes from her friends. Many editions later—and a few added chapters later—and the collection still stands as a staple for any home cook.
CL readers love this one too!
"Some go in and out of style, but over the years the one I will always refer to (and that I can find just about everything in and certainly the basics) is The Joy of Cooking." - Barbara Lort Genner
