Unforgettable: The Bold Flavors of Paula Wolfert’s Renegade Life  by Emily Kaiser Thelin

Paula Wolfert’s appetite—for food, for travel, for life—was insatiable. She authored nine award-winning cookbooks, inspired countless palates, from Jacques Pepin to Mario Batali, and became a gastronomy icon. In 2013, she was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, but this recently released biographical cookbook, which includes 50 of Wolfert’s legendary dishes and highlights of her fabulous jet-setting adventures, from encounters with the Beat Generation to discovering the international flavors she helped bring into kitchens across America,is an absolute delight. $35.00, HachetteBookGroup.com
