Collector-quality vintage cookbooks, Betty Crocker cookbooks, Pet Milk cookbooks, advertising cookbooks, appliance cookbooks, baking cookbooks, food advertising ephemera and other vintage goodies. Yup, we LOVE vintage cookbooks, the men and women who created them and the fascinating stories they tell! Old cookery books are about more than food – for generations, women relied on them for advice on how to run their households, care for sick babies, please their husbands, get their clothes cleaner, and squeeze more meals out of a pound of meat. Sometimes the books seemed to come alive, providing comfort during times of war and economic hardship, such as when Betty Crocker proclaimed “Hail to the women of America!” in a pep talk about stretching wartime food rations in her 1943 “Your Share” cookbook. Whether you crave the social commentary, retro advertising images or the homey comfort foods, The Cookbook Maven has a vintage cookbook to satisfy your appetite!
