Requiescat in Pace -- Colleen McCullough

Colleen McCullough died on 29  January.   She was Australia's best selling author, a neurophysiologist, and for us, a cookbook author.  She was boisterous, witty, and more accomplished than most.  So it was quite shocking and in profoundly bad taste that The Australian began her obituary, not with her remarkable gifts, but by stating she was "plain" and "overweight."  Screw them!

Take a few moments to read our Famous Food Friday on Colleen McCullough from several years ago.

  1. Way to go about the newspaper article! I'd say the same! I loved loved Colleen McCullough and was sad when I read she had died in January. She was one smart cookie, who was a terrific writer and I will miss her. That's a shame that her homeland would say that about a truly gifted woman. Screw them for sure! May she RIP!
