This June I was very honored to be awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award by the UK Guild of Food Writers. I’m grateful to be invited to join such a rarefied group of food writers who have already received this award.  If you?d like to watch my acceptance speech at the Guild of Food Writers Awards at Opera Holland Park, London, click here.

Now that I’m settled in London I’ve joined the London Les Dames d?Escoffier chapter and I’m deep into working on a new culinary history book, which traces the evolution of the American cookbook through key works all written by women authors, and I’m enjoying being closer to my family, teaching my grandchildren in the kitchen weekly.
