The General Foods Kitchen Cookbook by The Woman of the General Foods Kitchen 1959 Random House

Free Shipping!


| /


Practical, clearly written, and comprehensive cookbook with glossy color photographs, plus line drawings. 

What makes this cookbook a must is the lists of what to serve with what, arranged by protein. If your meatloaf always comes with mashed potatoes and green beans, this is the book for you. Somehow those lists conjure up much nicer meals, and they are all basic cooking!

 The cute 50's graphics make it feel lighthearted, a good antidote to the serious cookbooks like Joy and Julia on your shelf.

The General Foods Kitchen Cookbook is an excellent addition to your vintage recipe collection or home kitchen.


The book The General Foods Kitchen Cookbook is in good shape for its age with no rips or tears. Please note the wear and stains on the cover and the previous owner's name signature on the inside page.

Bonus: found with a foodie hankie. Enjoy!

Please use pictures as a guide. Have any questions or need more photos, ask.

The vintage items I share with you have been previously owned and loved. They may show some wear as is typical for vintage pieces.

Our Process

We source from local estate sales in the Great Lakes Bay Region, only purchasing the highest quality books.

After photos are shot, the book is immediately placed in a clear self-sealed bag, stored in a climate-controlled room for protection until you purchase.

When shipping, your book is double-bagged using kraft bubble mailer's for protection.

Who We Are

Adopt a sustainable mindset.

When buying a new book, most readers don't imagine how much paper we are using and what will happen to that paper in a year or two.

What is vintage sustainability?

Approximately 640,000 tons of books are deposited in the landfill annually at an average weight of 4 pounds each. This averages out to about 320 million books discarded each year that are not recycled. Wow!

As avid readers become more conscious of the environmental consequence of disposable books, we are looking for a more sustainable way to shop.

Could buying vintage be the answer? Absolutely!

Our vintage books are authentic, sustainable, and unique. So make a difference - your way. 

All of my vintage books are sourced from personal collections found in estate sales.

When you shop with Reading Vintage, you are saving a book from the landfill.

Sustainability is the future.

I'm passionate about preserving our past and passionate about the power of books to tell stories.

Because my goal at Reading Vintage is to connect readers to books, I hope to save these books from the landfill. 

I'm proud to offer these books that are gently used. For those interested in the environment, browse our online shelves so you can find the titles you love in a way that's more environmentally friendly. 

Happy Reading,

Pam of Reading Vintage
