eater > With Jonathan Gold’s Death, LA Lost a Tireless, Open-Hearted Champion

“He wasn’t looking down his nose at the world, he was looking out from the table and trying to put restaurants, meals and cuisines in context. Empathy, understanding, commensality: That’s what he brought to the game,” Meehan said. “Jonathan didn’t write restaurant reviews, he wrote about who we are and how we feed each other. He wasn’t just a better writer than the rest of us, he cared more, too.”

Madeleine Kamman, 87, Who Gave Americans a Taste of France, Dies - The New York Times

Kamman's Making of a Cook is one of my favorite cookbooks. It is far more than a recipe book, it educates one on how to think about food through better understanding ingredients and methods or preparing and cooking.

Trailblazing Piano Professor Frances Walker-Slocum ’45 dies at 94 | Oberlin College and Conservatory

Fri, 06/15/2018 - 23:53
Outspoken throughout her life, Walker-Slocum showcased the music of black composers such as Scott Joplin, Samuel Coleridge-Taylor, and former Oberlin student William Grant Still; battled for gender equity in salary; and strode confidently into an interracial marriage amid a torrent of condemnation. Through the years, she was also beloved by her students, many of whom went on to standout careers of their own. Born in Washington, D.C., Walker-Slocum was raised alongside her brother, Pulitzer Prize-winning composer George Walker ’41, hon. DM ’83. She sustained severe burns in a fire at age 5 and suffered a long and painful recovery that included a yearlong stint in the hospital and numerous surgeries, especially to her right arm. Walker-Slocum followed her brother to Oberlin, primarily because it was the only college at the time willing to confer undergraduate degrees to blacks. (“Every black musician I knew in Washington studied in Oberlin,” she once said. “Oberlin was a vanguard in those days as far as blacks were concerned.”)
