About the Author
Written by Irma Rombauer, Joy of Cooking was first tested and illustrated by her daughter, Marion Rombauer Becker. Subsequently, it was revised and expanded through Marion's efforts and those of her husband, John Becker. Their son Ethan, with his Cordon Blue training and knowledge of American cooking, has added to this book in many important ways.
