Sheila Lukins Dies

lisabadge

Just heard on NPR Morning edition that Sheila Lukins died. She’s an iconic figure who, with her partner Julie Russo, changed the way America cooked in the early 1980’s.  As a young pup librarian the most popular section of our little branch library until tax season was cooking (the first call number that rolled off the tip of my tongue without looking it up was 641.5).

Many of you have replaced and ordered additional copies of Julia Child’s Mastering the Art of French Cooking to meet recent demand. Take a look, it may be time to replace those tattered Silver Palate Cookbooks.

P.S. As a newlywed The Silver Palate was it for me. I never knew that soup started with stock that you made, not a can of Campbells.
