SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Marion Cunningham, the home-cooking champion whose legacy can be found in the food-spattered pages of "Fannie Farmer" cookbooks in kitchens across America, has died at age 90.
Cunningham, who had been ill for some years, died of complications from Alzheimer's disease, a family friend told the San Francisco Chronicle.
Best known for her revisions of the classic "The Fannie Farmer Cookbook," in 1979 and again in 1990, Cunningham wrote several other books, including "Lost Recipes." She also hosted a
series, "Cunningham & Company," that aired on the Food Network.
Though she moved in rarefied circles, Cunningham resisted trendiness. She was an ardent supporter of the humble iceberg lettuce and specialized in simple, straightforward recipes.
