The Joy of Cooking was my mother's cookbook-her ONLY cookbook. She regarded it as the quintessential manual for her kitchen. It lacked color pictures; I thought it boring, but I did learn the basics of food preparation from it. I was never allowed to use it unless my mother was present until I was in high school. Then she allowed me to copy out by hand some of the recipes I had mastered.
That was the beginning of my love affair with cooking and cookbooks. Indeed I learned to know the JOY of cooking!

This is the original good cookbook. My sister searched for weeks on EBay to find my mom a copy. I found mine at the thrift store for $2.50.If you are lucky enough to come across a copy grab it. It is rather rare. ( )
