Betty Crocker's Classic Cookbook touches heart strings and taste buds


Last updated 7/14/2006 at Noon

`The year was 1950 and the cookbook was Betty Crocker’s Picture Cookbook. It was a best seller! Not only was it the top cookbook of the year…it sold more copies than any other non-fiction book that year!

It was also a cookbook ahead of its time with “key” recipes and variations plus lots and lots of photographs that demonstrated steps of recipes as well as the finest food photography of the time. For many, this was their “culinary Bible”.

Recently it has become available again through Rodale Cookbooks, 33 Minor Street, Emmaus, PA 18098.
