  1. I learned so much from her Fannie Farmer Baking Book, that a dear friend gifted me when I was starting to learn my way around a kitchen of my own.

    1. Thanks for letting us know. Her story shows that real people can do great things.

              +1 on that. My copy is so tattered, i really need a new one. It is a great book just to read through.

                I agree. The Bridge St. Ginger Muffins are still my favorite after all these years.

                  Orangette paid tribute.

              2. One of my favorite cookbooks, Fannie Farmer. Very sad day indeed.

                1. This made me so sad. One of the finest food writers ever. I am actually taking her Swiss Cheese Spread (from the wonderful "The Supper Book") to a party tonight.
