Paula Wolfert Wire


Famed cookbook author Paula Wolfert was diagnosed with Benson's syndrome (a variant of Alzheimer's) which has led her to swap exotic ingredients for foods that could help "stall the inevitable progression of her disease. She once wrote "volumes on preserved lemons, stuffed eggplant and the power of the tagine" but now she "talks of hemp powder, steamed supergreens and MCT oil." [Chronicle]
