My Friend and Mentor Jean Anderson Died

Jean Anderson, died a few weeks ago at the age of 93. She was a food and travel writer, food photographer, author of (over?) 20 cookbooks and a great friend and mentor. Jean was a walking culinary encyclopedia, my red phone on “Cooking Live,” salty and very funny. Before I had kids I went on several trips with her as her photographic assistant and once, when we were in the Netherlands, we passed a herd of cows and not only could she identify what breed they were, she also told me the butterfat content of their milk. She was old school, the real deal.
