In Memoriam: Marion Cunningham, Author of The Fannie Farmer Cookbook, 1922-2012
July 11th, 2012
“Marion Cunningham epitomized good American food. She was recommended to me by Jim Beard when we agreed to take over The Fannie Farmer Cookbook and update it from start to finish. She was someone who had an ability to take a dish, savor it in her mouth, and give it new life. At a time when Americans were embracing all kinds of foreign cuisine, Marion Cunningham’s love and respect for American food helped The Fannie Farmer Cookbook once again earn a place in kitchens across America.” —Judith Jones
