Here are snapshots of the women in Spoon Fed and links to the original articles I wrote about them.
Born: New York City, 1948
Most Famous For: Writing about food, including a spin in The New York Times restaurant critic’s chair, the editorship of Gourmet and her collection of memoirs.
The First Time I saw Her: In the lobby of the Campton Place Hotel in San Francisco, 2001.
Greatest Contribution to Food: Documenting how America eats for more than 40 years.
The Lesson: Don’t compare yourself to other people. It never helps.
