United states Today’s founding foodstuff editor Ellen Brown dies in Providence

Happy in her kitchen is how I'll remember my friend Ellen Brown, who died unexpectedly on Jan. 6.

The Providence Journal, section of the United states Now Community, has missing a extended-time contributor. Journalism has lost a trailblazer. And I have dropped a mate. 

Ellen Brown, who penned The Journal’s Price tag-Buster Cooking Column for seven years, died unexpectedly past 7 days following a surgical technique.

The initially story I wrote about her appeared in 2009 with a headline, not published by me, that referred to as her “a seasoned author and chef.”

But I always considered of Ellen as saucy. And indefatigable.

At my final rely, she had penned 43 cookbooks. Can you imagine? They included anything from how to make ice cream, anything she taught me to do, to one particular-pot cooking and even gluten-free baking. 

She cooked the way other people breathe, constantly and with ease.
