I'm pretty sure that's the one. I don't own a copy, and seem to recall  
it was semi-out-of-print when I read part of it, back in the late  
80's. Yeah, Anne Willan, it was.

Other possibilities include Wheaton's "The Delectable Past", which is  
about mostly French food but contains a lot of information about  
chefs, and Eric Quayle's "Old Cook Books" (which is, as the title  
suggests, about cookbooks and their authors).
