The Tiffin-Seneca Public Library is inviting patrons to participate in a number of activities regarding Betty Crocker, cookbooks, and cooking in anticipation of a virtual program about Betty Crocker by historian Leslie Goddard, Ph.D.
A Betty Crocker Lookalike Contest will ask participants to break out their red sweaters in celebration of the Betty Crocker brand turning 100 this year. One winner will receive a Betty Crocker prize pack.
Patrons are also asked to “Share Your Betty Crocker Cookbook.” The first Betty Crocker cookbook debuted in 1950, and has since sold 75 million copies and produced twelve editions. Which version do you have? Was it a wedding gift or passed down from a family member? Is there a special recipe?
Entries can be posted to the Tiffin-Seneca Public Library Facebook page or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Tiffin-Seneca Public Library will host a virtual adult program “Betty Crocker and Her Cookbook That Changed How America Cooks” on Tuesday, January 26 at 6:30 p.m. via Zoom. Historian Leslie Goddard, Ph.D., will talk about how Betty Crocker was invented, why her cookbook has endured and what makes her so iconic. A question and answer session will follow the presentation. Registration is required by visiting https://bit.ly/TSPLBettyCrockerRegistration.
