Question: Irma Rombauer, who attended Washington University for a time, wrote and published which best-selling cookbook?
Answer: B) After the death of her husband Edgar (a School of Law alumnus), Rombauer sought to create a useful cookbook for women, self-publishing “Joy of Cooking” in 1931. It included elements we take for granted today, such as full ingredient lists and step-by-step instructions. Julia Child cited it for teaching her to cook.
Congrats to this week’s winner, alumna Barbara Kern, who will receive an “I Knew WashU” luggage tag!
