The Joy Of Cooking Sparked My Passion!

Updated on May 29, 2014

When I think of what inspired me to become a pastry chef I think back to making breakfast with my mom, pretending we were on a cooking show, with the Joy of Cooking in her hand. Anything you could ever want to know about baking, cooking, candy, or pickling could be found in this little jewel. Jam packed full of recipes, I was always able to find the coolest things, and try out new recipes.

After years of use my Joy of Cooking 1964 is tattered, torn, and has the stains of goodness knows what between the pages. I must admit it is still my go to when I need to know how to make something. Not only does it provide the recipes but it explains the essential skills needed to make the recipe you are trying out. The Joy of Cooking book is hands down my favorite cook book to ever hit the shelves.

Joy of Cooking 1964 is almost like having 100 cook books in one. With thousands of recipes you are sure to find exactly what you are looking for. Whether you are looking for a go to cook book when making meals for your family, or you are looking to enhance your recipes, this cook book has got you covered.

Whether you are a professional chef, a foodie, a restaurateur, or a mother, this book will be your culinary Bible. You will find yourself reaching for it whenever you need a recipe, and all other cookbooks will become obsolete compared to Joy. I completely stand behind this cookbook and recommend it for anyone and everyone who enjoys discovering new recipes.

      The Joy of Cooking is certainly a classic. Hard to imagine it's still relevant to young chefs like yourself.
