Publishers Text

The 2019 edition of the iconic Joy of Cooking is fully updated with exciting fresh recipes and expertly researched reference material. It will teach both seasoned cooks and those just learning their way around the kitchen how to love cooking and to cook well—on their own terms.

One of the 150 most important and influential books of the twentieth century (The New York Public Library), The Joy of Cooking has taught tens of millions of people to cook. Since 1931, the Rombauer-Becker family has revised and updated their bestselling cookbook—a book Julia Child called the “fundamental resource for any American cook.” Eighty-eight years after Irma Rombauer self-published the first edition, her great-grandson, John Becker, and his wife Megan Scott, have translated this comprehensive culinary resource for a new generation of home cooks, bringing the latest version of Joy into the future while drawing on the best of its storied past.

In the 2019 edition of Joy, readers will find many beloved recipes from previous editions retested and updated, as well as over 600 new recipes geared to modern tastes and the way we cook today. From quick, weeknight-friendly recipes and meals you can cook ahead to show-stopping, celebratory dishes and DIY projects such as fermenting foods and making sausages, the new Joy has dishes for every occasion, whim, and skill level. Each chapter has been thoughtfully reconsidered and improved upon, always with an eye to what has made Joy a practical, approachable, indispensable companion in the kitchen.

The 2019 edition features:
—A large selection of vegan, vegetarian, and gluten free recipes;
—Baking chapters that include weight measures for greater accuracy and easier clean-up;
—“Streamlined Cooking,” a new chapter devoted to saving time, effort, and money in the kitchen;
—Expanded coverage of new ingredients and cooking techniques;
—A thorough, up-to-date nutrition chapter and food safety guidelines;
—New illustrations and beautiful chapter-opening papercuts that harken back to the artwork in the original Joy.

A timeless kitchen essential for generations of cooks, Joy celebrates all that is good and rewarding about cooking and eating delicious, nutritious food every day.
