RIP carissima Marcella Hazan...

Victor Hazan posted that his incomparable, irreplaceable wife died this morning, "a few steps from her bed.". Very sad news.

  1. Yes, Marcella died at her home here on longboat Key, Florida. She was born in 1923.

    1. I just saw this on FB. I knew she'd been really slowing down. Her food legacy will live forever in our kitchens.

      1. Marcella will live on in my home as long as I can make her tomato butter sauce, one of the best things I have ever tasted. Thank you, Marcella!

          Amen. In fact, I'm going to make many, many quarts of it today with a bushel of NJ tomatoes ;-)

          1. How sad to read that she has died. One who gave so much of her vast knowledge of Italian cuisine to the US and the world. May Marcella Hazan rest in peace.
