Publishers Description
"The book that taught America how to cook,
now illustrated with glorious color photography"
A fresh and original way to put the classic advice of "Joy of Cooking" to work -- illustrated and designed in a beautiful and easy-to-use new book.
  • Chapters covering vegetable soups and stews, legume soups and stews, chowders, meat and poultry soups and stews, fruit soups, and more
  • More than 130 of "Joy's" most popular recipes -- from Fresh Tomato Soup to Mulligatawny Soup to Brunswick Stew -- plus recipes for 14 different stocks
  • Easy-to-follow tips and techniques for effective storage, serving, and ingredient substitutions Sixty years after Irma Rombauer advised new cooks to "Stand facing the stove," America's love affair with "Joy of Cooking" continues unabated. And why not? "Joy" in hand, tens of millions of people -- from novices to professionals -- have learned to do everything from make a meat loaf to clean a squid to frost a wedding cake. For decades, "Joy of Cooking" has taught America how to cook, serving as the standard against which all other cookbooks are judged.
    "All About Soups & Stews" upholds that standard. While keeping the conversational and instructional manner of the flagship book, "All About Soups & Stews" is organized into ten chapters that cover stocks and broths, chowders, fish and seafood soups and stews, fruit soups, and more. This book incorporates more than 130 of "Joy's" best-loved recipes -- Chicken Stock to Irish Stew to Melon Soup. You'll also find recipes for a dozen or more condiments and quick breads, as well as techniques for straining and storing stock. Add to that more than 150 original photographs, specially commissioned for this volume, presented in the most easy-to-use design imaginable.
    Whether you belong to one of the millions of American households that already own a copy (or two) of "Joy, " or you have never cracked the spine of a cookbook before, "Joy of Cooking: All About Soups & Stews" is for you. It is a spectacular achievement, worthy of its name. "Joy" has never been more beautiful.
    "The Indispensable Kitchen Resource...

    Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Irma Von Starkloff Rombauer was born in St. Louis in October 1877 of German stock, grew up and married, never expecting to earn her own living. But after her husband's sudden death in 1930, this celebrated hostess became a cookbook author. With the publication of the first "Joy of Cooking" in 1931, she began a family tradition that was passed to her daughter Marion Rombauer Becker in the 1950s and to Marion's son Ethan Becker in 1976.

    Irma Von Starkloff Rombauer was born in 1877 and died in 1962.
