Paula Wolfert is 'Unforgettable'

Hosted by

Paula Wolfert has been awarded the prestigious Lifetime Achievement honor from the James Beard Foundation. Wolfert never had a restaurant or television show, but her eight seminal cookbooks that were published over nearly four decades influenced much of what we eat today.

In 2013, Wolfert was diagnosed with dementia, which prompted writer Emily Thelin to document her life and legacy. “Unforgettable” is Thelin’s biography of Wolfert, and it recently won the “Best Cookbook in Literary Fiction” award from the International Association of Culinary Professionals.
