Product Details


Selected as one of the 2009 Kansas Notable Books In “Kelly Alexander and Cynthia Harris’s smartly drawn, surprisingly uplifting biography […] the authors share Paddleford’s eye for a good story, deftly documenting their subject’s well-deserved contributions to food journalism, but balancing them with biographical color.”
New York Post

“Alexander and Harris paint an affectionate portrait of the eccentric writer, an ebullient yet imposing individualist and charismatic adventurer…Rich, flavorful and spirited, like its subject and the cuisines she chronicled.”

“At long last, an enthusiastic, significant rehabilitation of Paddleford’s career as food writer from 1936 to 1966 at the New York Herald Tribune…The authors make an upbeat case for reconsidering Paddleford’s achievement in this enjoyable read, and include a slew of her comfort recipes.”
