CHICAGO, Ill. — Independent Publishers Group (IPG), in collaboration with Dotdash Meredith’s Better Homes & Gardens, announces that a special commemorative edition of Better Homes & Gardens’ beloved “New Cook Book” will be published this fall in celebration of the brand’s 100th anniversary.  
The 18th edition of the “New Cook Book” will be released on October 25, 2022. It will feature a fresh anniversary cover, as well as new chapters looking back at the history of Better Homes & Gardens. Special sections in the new edition include a “Behind the Kitchen Door” feature on the history of America’s first test kitchen, as well as a “Then & Now” section comparing original classics from early editions to the updated recipes influenced by flavor and current food trends. Historical covers, food images, and illustrations from the archives add a playful element to the pages. 
Since the brand was founded in 1922, Better Homes & Gardens has remained a trusted resource for home, food, gardening, and recipe content. The “New Cook Book,” with its distinctive red-and-white plaid cover, is one of the world's most recognized and trusted cookbooks. 
The “New Cook Book” will be published by IPG and will be available for pre-order on book-retailing sites in late Spring.
