I just returned from the first afternoon of my food historian's
conference at the UM. I was stunned to hear from Sandy Oliver
that Karen Hess died on May 16th.
She was the editor of the /Martha Washington's Booke of Cookery/, of
Mary Randolph's /The Virginia Housewife/, /The Carolina Rice Kitchen/,
and with her husband John Hess, the author of /The Taste of America/.
She suffered a massive stroke on Tuesday, May 8, and died last night in
her sleep. She was 88.
I didn't find the death notice yet in the NYT, but it is up on
the Food History News website.
catch you all later next week
