A Food Writer's Eulogy...

...for conservative doyenne Jeane Kirkpatrick:

Jeane cooked with the characteristic gusto that she threw into her writing on neoconservative causes or the latest speech defending U.S. foreign policy before the United Nations. As she sauteed the ham, beat her natilla, a Spanish custard pudding she loved, or made paella, a regular party dish, she told me about her techniques.

Read the whole thing.  It is heartfelt and delightful.
