Feast for the eyes.

Irma Rombauer’s famed Joy of Cooking—the (almost) edible encyclopedia Julia Child called “a fundamental resource for any American cook”—is back in a modern way. Now in a revised and updated 75th Anniversary edition, it’s all decked out in embossed leather and gilded with hand-painted edges. Snag one to showcase on your counter or give as a gift to a fellow cook.
