Marcella Hazan, the cooking teacher and cookbook writer who taught a generation of American cooks that there’s more to Italian cooking that spaghetti and meatballs, died in September at the age of 89. We’re re-airing and interview Leonard did in 2008 with Marcella and Victor Hazan, who were discussing their collaborating on a memoir, called Amarcord: Marcella Remembers.

If Julia Child taught Americans how to cook French food, Marcella Hazan taught them how to cook Italian food. She taught herself to cook when she and her husband Victor came to the US in 1955 and soon Hazan was teaching New Yorkers how to cook noodles, meat sauce, and risotto, enjoying their work during lunch at the end of class. In 1970 New York Times food editor Craig Claiborne came to one of the lunches. The rest, as they say, is history. Her popular cookbooks were known for their simple, straightforward recipes. She died recently at the age of 89. You can hear 2 of her conversations with Leonard.
