Madeleine Kamman published in 1971 The Making of A Cook, teaching Americans how classic French cooking techniques could be applied to American ingredients. This cookbook is a complete re-write of that book, using new techniques, ingredients, and nutrition. If you are a person who needs to know EVERYTHING about a subject, this is your book.
At VintageCookbook.com we try to provide you with your mother’s cookbook! I know lots of current recipe bloggers write proudly that their recipes are “not from your mother’s cookbook.” We think the recipes in your mother’s cookbook provided food that was nutritious and warm and colorful and just plain yummy! We know that just looking at the cover of your mother’s Woman’s Home Companion Cook Book makes you feel good. Holding her Betty Crocker Cookbook, or her Better Homes and Gardens, or Good Housekeeping Cookbook in your hands is better than nostalgic. And cooking some of those dishes for your children will pass on a great tradition.
