These days, best remembered for her introducing Julia Child to the world! Amazing career.

Thanks for this. Judith Jones edited some of the most important cookbooks in my life, Julia Child's, Marcella Hazan's, and Fannie Farmer. I liked a book she wrote herself on cooking for two, though I passed that along to someone else I thought could use it more than I. RIP, Judith.

I had to look up who she was because I have never heard of her.

She was a great book editor who worked with Julia Child and other famous names, and she wrote at least one great book herself.

Six days ago. Really interesting lady.

As much as we all appreciate the changes to home cooking brought about my Julia Child and her books, Ms. Jones was also the editor who pushed to get "The Diary of Anne Frank" published. THAT imho is her greatest legacy.

though her cook books were one of a kind and helped us get to know cooks like Julia, yes, the Diary of Anne Frank has to be her number one achievement.
