Marcella Hazan, Italian cookbook author, died at the age of 89, announced by family members this week. Hazan was remembered by her beloved family, who were by her side the day of her passing, according to Huff Post news reports on Sept. 29. The famed author captivated food consumers with six successful cookbooks since 1973.
“The Classic Italian Cookbook” author gave readers a glimpse into her Italian-born food style; she kept all her dishes fresh and simply prepared in her first published cookbook in the ‘70s.
At a time when Julia Child spotlighted her French-style techniques, the Italian food maven emerged with her simple Italian-style flair to the American public.
The “Essentials of Classic Italian Cooking” author never overly used garlic or other Italian seasonings to mask any of her prized dishes.
Marcella Hazan is survived by her husband – a marriage of close to six decades – Victor Hazan, their son and daughter-in-law, Giuliano and Lael Hazan.
Their son, Guiliano Hazan, a cooking teacher and writer, has followed in his mother’s footsteps in recent years with his own cookbook, “Hazan Family Favorites.”
If you haven’t read any of Marcella Hazan’s cookbooks from the ‘70s, rest assured, her legacy has been passed onto her son now.
Our sincerest condolences to the Hazan Family over their loss during this difficult time.
