“It was 20 years ago that I left Château du Fey [in Burgundy]…I had the run of the estate, from the wine cellar to the vast cookbook library to the walled potager garden.

Behind it, others whispered, was a collection of rare antiquarian culinary books owned by Willan and her husband, Mark Cherniavsky.” – Craig Laban in the Philadelphia Inquirer
