Monday Evening, June 10, 1957. Demand for Cookbooks Is Reported on Rise NEW YORK (UP)—Sales of| cookbooks are booming, right along with sales of all those foods 'which need little or no cooking. Publishers happily reported today an undiminishing "appetite" for every type of culinery guide- from such basics as the "Fannie Farmer Cookbook" to such specialized works as "Fabulous Foods For People You Love" and "Cooking With A Chinese Flavor." And yet, last year, we spent a record amount of money on frozen foods • alone — a leader in the "less work for mother" field. "They buy cookbooks to use, not 5ust to read or for their lions," said Lois Cole, an editor at Putnam. "But a good cookbook is good reading too." Here To Stay "Creative cooking always will be with us," said Clara Classen, cookbook editor at. Doubleday. "Even with all the advance work the processors do, we women will improvise . . . will in.sist on developing our own specialties." Other publishers add other reasons why from 50 to 75 new cook- hooks appear each year—and sell. "Women have more time and more money to spend on food." said a spokesman at Prentice- Hall. "They're using both to create luxury dishes, instead of spending hours baking bread." "Women buy cookbooks for Ideas," said John T. Lawrence, of M. Barrows, which has published several dozen successes.' "They want short cuts, want to know how to dress up a dish, stretch the budget,, add variety. A cookbook now needs a special approach, a gimmick." Specialties Newest Trends Most publishers agreed the specialty cookbooks are the newest trend—although the classic "Joy of Cooking" has sold more than two million copies since il first was published in 1931. Travel has increased interest ir regional and national dishes. Restaurants lend their names anc recipes to others. Whole books are devoted to cooking 'With casserole, with electric skillet, electric blender. Others are confined to sauces, to souffles cheese, rice, or eggs; stiU others to dinner for two, or for the week end hostess. Now, publishers see a whole new culinary world to conquer in books on diet—fat free, salt free, or calorie low.
