Cookbook Club: Betty Crocker’s Picture Book

Each month we discuss a significant cookbook and prepare a group meal adapted from its recipes. Here’s what’s cooking this month:

Betty Crocker’s Picture Book, 1950
Betty Crocker’s Picture Book shaped a generation of home cooks in America through its color photography, practical tips and useful hints. Discuss mid-century advertising and Marjorie Husted, the woman behind the iconic Betty Crocker brand. Prepare a classic American meal straight from its pages complete with cake mix. But from scratch. ($115)

Classes meet at New School of Cooking’s Pasadena campus.
525 East Colorado Blvd, Pasadena 91101
