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!
Several years ago we did our Cookbook Of The Day/Lucindaville Famous Food Friday on McCullough's Cooking with Colleen McCullough. Take a few moments to remember.
