Finding Betty Crocker

Author: Susan Marks
Publisher: Simon and Schuster
ISBN: 1439104018
Release Date: 2010-05-11
Genre: Cooking

IN 1945, FORTUNE MAGAZINE named Betty Crocker the second most popular American woman, right behind Eleanor Roosevelt, and dubbed Betty America's First Lady of Food. Not bad for a gal who never actually existed. "Born" in 1921 in Minneapolis, Minnesota, to proud corporate parents, Betty Crocker has grown, over eight decades, into one of the most successful branding campaigns the world has ever known. Now, at long last, she has her own biography. Finding Betty Crocker draws on six years of research plus an unprecedented look into the General Mills archives to reveal how a fictitious spokesperson was enthusiastically welcomed into kitchens and shopping carts across the nation. The Washburn Crosby Company (one of the forerunners to General Mills) chose the cheery all-American "Betty" as a first name and paired it with Crocker, after William Crocker, a well-loved company director. Betty was to be the newest member of the Home Service Department, where she would be a "friend" to consumers in search of advice on baking -- and, in an unexpected twist, their personal lives. Soon Betty Crocker had her own national radio show, which, during the Great Depression and World War II, broadcast money-saving recipes, rationing tips, and messages of hope. Over 700,000 women joined Betty's wartime Home Legion program, while more than one million women -- and men -- registered for the Betty Crocker Cooking School of the Air during its twenty-seven-year run. At the height of Betty Crocker's popularity in the 1940s, she received as many as four to five thousand letters daily, care of General Mills. When her first full-scale cookbook, Betty Crocker's Picture Cook Book, or "Big Red," as it is affectionately known, was released in 1950, first-year sales rivaled those of the Bible. Today, over two hundred products bear her name, along with thousands of recipe booklets and cookbooks, an interactive website, and a newspaper column. What is it about Betty? In answering the question of why everyone was buying what she was selling, author Susan Marks offers an entertaining, charming, and utterly unique look -- through words and images -- at an American icon situated between profound symbolism and classic kitchen kitsch.

Sprechen wir ber Eulen und Diabetes

Author: David Sedaris
Publisher: Karl Blessing Verlag
ISBN: 9783641113254
Release Date: 2013-09-09
Genre: Fiction

Der ganz normale Wahnsinn Wer behaupten wollte, David Sedaris schreibe und veröffentliche Tagebücher, um seinen Lebensunterhalt zu verdienen, müsste Michelangelo einen Anstreicher nennen. Niemand versteht es besser als Sedaris, Erlebtes in Lesbares zu verwandeln – seit seinem Debüt mit »Nackt« lässt er seine weltumspannende Fangemeinde daran teilhaben, wie er die schmerzlichste Erinnerung in subtile Komik und die banalste Begebenheit in zeitlose Weisheit kleidet. Er ist sein eigener Inquisitor und Hofnarr zugleich – „der herausragende Vertreter des Mein-Leben-als-David-Sedaris-Genres“ (BRIGITTE). In seinem neuesten Band mit absurden Alltagsgeschichten entführt uns Sedaris unter anderem in den australischen Busch, wo allerlei Getier verborgene Ängste und längst verdrängte Erfahrungen in ihm aufleben lässt; er erzählt von einer durchzechten Nacht mit wildfremden Alkoholikern im Zug von Chicago nach New York, weiht uns ein in die Geheimnisse der französischen Kieferchirurgie und in die Abgründe des britischen Handwerkertums, verrät uns und seinem präpotenten Patenkind, wie Tagebuchschreiben funktioniert und wozu es gut ist, und lehrt uns, Eulen zu verstehen. Es gibt kaum ein besseres Mittel gegen schlechte Laune als die Komik von David Sedaris – in 26 Geschichten und einem Gedicht macht er voller Scharfsinn aus den kleinen und großen Dramen des Lebens einen guten Witz.

Hanas Koffer

Author: Karen Levine
Publisher: Ravensburger Buchverlag Otto Maier GmbH
ISBN: 9783473476145
Release Date: 2015-01-28
Genre: Juvenile Fiction

Der Koffer sieht eigentlich ganz normal aus. Ein bisschen abgewetzt, aber in gutem Zustand. Er ist braun. Er ist groß. Es passt viel hinein - vielleicht Kleidungsstücke für eine lange Reise. Bücher, Schätze, Spielsachen. Jeden Tag kommen Kinder zu einem kleinen Museum in Tokio, um diesen Koffer zu sehen. Er befindet sich in einem Glasschrank. Und durch das Glas kann man sehen, dass auf dem Koffer etwas geschrieben ist. In weißer Farbe quer über der Vorderseite steht: Hana Brady, 16. Mai 1931, Waisenkind. "Wer war Hana Brady? Woher kam sie? Wohin reiste sie? Was hatte sie in ihren Koffer gepackt?" Die Kinder, die tagtäglich das Holocaust-Museum in Tokio besuchen, wollen alles über Hana wissen und drängen die Museumsleiterin Fumiko Ishioka mehr über das Mädchen herauszufinden. Fumiko begibt sich auf eine Reise in die Vergangenheit, spürt Gegenstände, Zeichnungen, Fotos von Hana auf und findet schließlich Hanas Bruder. So erfahren die Kinder, wie Hana gelebt hat, wer ihre Eltern waren, was sie gerne gespielt hat, wie sie ausgesehen hat - und wie ihr junges Leben ausgelöscht wurde. Doch in Erinnerung der Kinder wird Hana immer lebendig bleiben.
