OldCookbooks.com, one of the internet's largest resources for out-of-print, vintage and rare cookbooks offers thousands of collectible cookbooks for homemakers looking to replace a treasured family memory, or for cooks wanting to discover great recipes from the past. An extensive library of American classics in their original editions ranging from the 20s through the 80s are there for the taking at http://www.oldcookbooks.com
Cookbooks from the past hold a special charm for collectors as they tell a story of life around the kitchen table where memories are built and traditions made.
OldCookbooks.com started with founder Eddie Edwards' interest in the period design and style of the books in her personal collection. "I originally just loved the old graphics, but eventually I was hooked on the stories found in these old cookbooks and the advertising pamphlets which depict life and living in another time. I'm actually not much of a cook, but I love to read recipes and dream of cakes and cookies and cocktails," he said.
Her current favorites are party, bar and cocktail guides from the 40s and 50s with recipes from the heyday of martinis, highballs and exotic punches, many with funny or clever names long since forgotten. Many are humorously illustrated and include recipes for cocktail canapÃ©s and party tips from the period.
Besides these atmospheric classics, OldCookbooks.com offers personalized searches utilizing an army of scouts tracking down your title, finding those lost or worn-out favorites that have a special meaning or interest for you. Even if you are looking for replacement binders or a torn or missing page from classic binder editions, OldCookbooks.com will allow you to purchase just that page. The website's searchable database allows you to view each book's cover. Customers can easily navigate through different categories including single replacements of existing sets.
Good food and great recipes never go out of style and OldCookbooks.com has plenty of them. For more information or to talk to a knowledgeable cookbook seller, visit http://www.oldcookbooks.com .
