Profile of Sheila Lukins

To those of us for whom The Silver Palate Cookbook was nothing less than the kitchen bible, the passing of Sheila Lukins is a sad moment. Sara Nelson profiles her friend over at The Daily Beast.

SN: When you went out to dinner with Sheila, you could count on getting the star treatment. Chefs, owners, waitstaff–everybody knew the sprite with the springy hair. One after another, a guy in white would slip into a booth or squat down by our table, and pay homage to Sheila. And while she didn’t lack for self-regard about her knowledge of food, she wasn’t a snob... More.
