Irma Rombauer

  Hi my name is Irma Rombauer. I was born October 30, 1877 in St. Louis, Missouri.  I am famous for helping people tame the cooking “beast”. I wrote a cookbook called The Joy of Cooking there have been more than 18 million copies sold. Many have reference the book for information that made their lives easier. I wanted to help women get out of the kitchen and on to other interests.
