Irma Rombauer

When Irma Rombauer published The Joy of Cooking in 1931 only 3000 copies were printed. She could not have imagined the publishing phenomenon that was about to be created!

She was born Irma von Starkloff in St Louis and educated in Switzerland. She married Edgar Rombauer in 1899 and became well known as a creative cook. She collected her recipes and published The Joy of Cooking in 1931 after the death of her husband.

some of the recipes in this classic are still exciting to try even now!
