"There's a Goethe quote at the beginning of Joy of Cooking, and it’s understandable if you’ve skipped over it leafing toward your go-to recipe for Country Captain, blender hollandaise, or lemon bars. But the quote means something to the Rombauer-Becker family, so indulge them (and me) for a moment and take it in: 'That which thy fathers have bequeathed to thee, earn it anew if thou wouldst possess it.'..”


Ode To Joy

The powerful legacy of Joy of Cooking, America’s favorite cookbook.
