In Memoriam: Sheila Lukins



August 31, 2009


We are deeply saddened by the death of JBF Award–winning cookbook author Sheila Lukins, who inspired generations of home cooks with her simple, modern, and sophisticated style of cooking. In 1986 Lukins, along with co-author Julee Rosso, won her first Beard award, for The Silver Palate Good Times Cookbook, and in 1992, The Silver Palate Cookbook (one of the 10 bestselling cookbooks of all time) was inducted into the Cookbook Hall of Fame. That same year, Lukins was inducted into the JBF Whos Who of Food & Beverage in America. [NYT]
