Reservations & payment in full are required by Friday, January 21, 2022, for Able Trek Tour- BETTY CROCKER: The Cookbook that Changed how America Cooks (Jacob Henry Mansion in Joliet, IL) WEDNESDAY, MARCH 9, 2022.
Long before Martha Stewart, there was Betty Crocker. In 1950, her brand-new Picture Cook Book hit shelves, with sales that rivalled that of another big book, The Bible. To date, it has sold more than 75 million copies. Created in 1921 by a flour company, Betty Crocker became the most and most trusted advisor to American cooks. This fun illustrated lecture by historian Leslie Goddard, Ph.D., looks at how Betty Crocker was invented, why her cookbook has endured and what makes her so iconic. It’s perfect if you’re feeling like cooking up some nostalgia.
An included lunch will reflect The Betty Crocker legacy. This program takes place in the Joliet, Illinois Jacob Henry Mansion’s stunning ballroom. The 16,800 square feet Mansion boasts over 40 rooms and is a National Historic Landmark. Minimal walking.
