The Margaret Rudkin Pepperidge Farm Cookbook, 1965

Margaret Rudkin began baking bread for her son Mark in 1937 because he was sick with asthma. She baked bread without preservatives and artificial ingredients, hoping it would be more healthy. The bread was popular, and she developed a mail order business out of her own kitchen. Soon, she sold to local grocers, and a few years later, she expanded her bakery to Norwalk, CT.

By 1950 Rudkin was appearing in commercials on television. At the same time, under her management the bakery was expanding into other products, including the Goldfish snack. In 1961 she sold the business to the Campbell Soup Company and became a director of that company. Although having sold Pepperidge Farm, she still ran the company until her retirement in 1966. Her interest in food led Margaret Rudkin to collect ancient cookbooks. She drew on her knowledge of food in writing The Margaret Rudkin Pepperidge Farm Cookbook (1963), which became a best seller. Her book (right) was first published in 1963. This article does not cite any references or sources. ...
