Sad news in a good story about Paula Wolfert in the Washington Post

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Wolfert is one of my food writing heroes. Her books changed the way I cook and eat. I hadn't heard before that she is suffering from dementia. I also hadn't realized that she is 75 years old.There's a nice article on her in the Washington Post today.

Hey Terry,

 

I know of Paula but don't recall working with any of her books. Which ones do you feel most impacted your cooking? 

Thanks,

Paula Wolfert's World of Food and The Cooking of the Eastern Mediterranean are the two I use.  Lovely, flavorful, mostly healthy food in both of them.

 

I've had Couscous and Other Good Food from Morocco on my wish list for a long time but have never gotten around to purchasing it. It's probably her most well-known book. That and The Cooking of Southwest France--which will harden your arteries just by reading it. I admit, I've never actually cooked anything from the latter book. It's heavier food than I usually like to eat but it makes for fascinating reading.

 

She's also got a book on clay pot cookery I've looked at but have stayed away from because the last thing I need is to accumulate more cookware--especially space-hogs like special-purpose clay vessels. The recipes sound wonderful, though. Very slow food.
