Join us as we celebrate the life and acheivements of chef and food lover Marion Cunningham (1922 – 2012). To many, she is considered the doyenne of American home cooking and mentor and confidante to many of the nation's top chefs.
Her professional food career didn't launch until she was fifty, after taking a cooking class with the master American cook James Beard. He eventually tapped her as his assistant, which led her to a career of teaching people to cook through classes and books.
She is perhaps best known as the woman who rewrote "The Fannie Farmer Cookbook." It was published in 1979 and became one of the nation's best-selling cookbooks. That was followed by "The Fannie Farmer Baking Book," "Learning to Cook," "The Breakfast Book" and several others.
