In Memoriam

Our dear friend, Carol Field, passed away on Friday, March 10 as a result of a stroke, just weeks after losing her husband, John Field, on February 21 to cancer.  Carol was a San Francisco cookbook author and novelist who helped popularize regional Italian cooking.  Her passion for Italy led to the creation of her most famous book, The Italian Baker, which is the "seminal book that taught bakers how to bake bread all over the country."  Amongst Carol's many accolades, she also founded a beloved San Francisco bookstore.

As a longtime IWF NorCal member, Carol was deeply connected to our forum for 29 years.  We send our love and support to the Field family during this time as they heal after the tremendous loss of both Carol and John.

A private memorial service was held for the couple.

You can read Carol's entire obit here.
