I love connecting with others who share my enthusiasm for old COOKBOOKS! My personal favorites are the advertising cookbooks from 1920s through the 1950s. It’s fun to watch how cooking techniques and recipe formats change. Sometimes the narration itself is fascinating, full of commentary on the family structure and social norms of the time period. And I just LOVE all those great illustrations of happy housewives and fabulous (and sometimes funky) FOOD!
These 1940s Pet Milk advertising cookbooks are chock full of homey comfort foods, colorful graphics & nifty NBC radio ads.
