Kentucky's Cookbook Heritage

University Press of Kentucky

This was an era of paradox: there was more interest in both ethnic and so-called gourmet recipes, which required more sophisticated cooking techniques, and a parallel concern for convenience in meal preparation. The demand for easy-to-prepare recipes was no doubt related to the growing number of women in the labor force. Food journalism also became increasingly important in this period, which witnessed the beginnings of what would become a flood of community cookbooks.
