The Joy of Cooking's Family History

Q&As

In the Museum's new special exhibition Our Global Kitchen: Food, Nature, Culture, an early edition of the American classic Joy of Cooking, first published in 1931 by Irma S. Rombauer, is featured in a wall of cookbooks, from ancient to modern. We recently spoke to John Becker, a great-grandson of Rombauer, who with others in his family still works to edit and develop the "all-purpose" cookbook.

Theodore Roosevelt Tour of the Museum: TR and the Giant Sequoia

On Exhibit posts

The restored Theodore Roosevelt Memorial is now open, and a new self-guided tour—available as part of the Museum's Explorer app, or on our web site—highlights exhibits around the Museum with a connection to TR, who was President from 1901 to 1909. In this post, the second in a series, we explore one of the tour's stops: a slice of the trunk of a giant sequoia, on display in the Museum's Hall of North American Forests.
