Obituary Note: Chef and a cookbook author Anna Pump

Shelf Awareness

Chef and a cookbook author Anna Pump, "whose national reputation for deceptively simple gourmet fare emanated from her place of business, the Loaves & Fishes Foodstore, a humble-looking fixture of high-end living in the Hamptons on Long Island," died October 5, the New York Times reported. She was 81.

In 1985, with writer Gen LeRoy, Pump published The Loaves and Fishes Cookbook, "the first of several volumes of recipes and kitchen advice that earned her a following among cooks whose aspirations lean toward sophistication and away from fussiness and pretension," the Times noted. 
Her books also included Summer on a Plate and Country Weekend Entertaining.
