    While not food related, it is on-topic for this thread.

    It was recommended to see the documentary Obit. I was able to stream it from Kanopy for free via my library card.

    It features the NYT obituary writers and the process in writing a featured obit.

    To all cookbook and culinary readers, I I pass along this notice from Kitchen Arts & Letters

    With deep sadness and regret, we pass along the news that Nach Waxman died suddenly today, August 4, 2021.

    Nach founded Kitchen Arts & Letters bookstore in 1983 after a long career in publishing. He built the store into a worldwide haven for people who were serious about food and drink books. He encouraged the best authors, respected the passion and curiosity of cooks and readers at all levels, and never lost a sense of pleasure and wonder at discovering the myriad ways people wrote about cooking, eating, and drinking.

    All of us who worked with him will miss him deeply. As we carry on the tradition he created, we will do so with pride and with a determination to make his legacy a lasting one.

    This article offers context to the obituary posted above.

    Nach Waxman Sells Passion for Food at Manhattan Cookbook Store
    “Recipes are a dime a dozen. Anybody can get recipes off the Internet,” he says. “But recipes aren’t the whole story. We want books that show how it all fits together — that show every aspect of how food impacts our life…. We carry books here you didn’t know existed until you came — and that’s the kind of serendipity you still can’t find online. We don’t sell any books here without a conversation.”



    The Key to Old World Borscht

    On the Upper West Side, Nach Waxman keeps an Eastern European culinary tradition alive in his ceramic crock: a fermented beet brine called russel.


    I made russel unaware of the tradition. I was just following something read in a book.

    LeDuff: Detroit 'Coney King' Chuck Keros Dies At 88
    Chuck Keros, the dapper, high-living proprietor of the American Coney Island restaurant, who popularized the iconic chili dog by expanding into the suburbs and shopping malls of post-war Detroit, died last week. He was 88.

    The cause was complications of Alzheimer's disease, according to his daughter Grace. He was buried in Grand Lawn Cemetery in Detroit near the right hand of his father.

    It was Keros' father, Gust, a Greek immigrant, who invented the sausage dog topped with meat sauce, a food staple that has become synonymous with Detroit.

    Ed Schoenfeld, Impresario of Chinese Cuisine, Dies at 72

    By William Grimes
    Jan. 14, 2022
    Ed Schoenfeld, who helped open the eyes of New Yorkers to the glories of Chinese regional cuisine with a series of top-rated restaurants in the 1970s and ’80s, notably Uncle Tai’s Hunan Yuan, Auntie Yuan and Pig Heaven, died on Friday at his home in Newark, N.J. He was 72.

    The cause was liver cancer, his son Eric said.

    Mr. Schoenfeld, a Jew from Brooklyn who in his 20s looked like a roadie for the Grateful Dead, seemed an unlikely ambassador for Chinese cuisine. But his expertise, earned through years of study with top immigrant chefs, made him an invaluable partner for restaurateurs like David Keh and Michael Tong.

    Lena Meijer, 1919 - 2022
    ...
    She was also an enthusiastic partner of her husband as the Meijer retail business grew, attending store openings and team member awards dinners, taking Sunday drives to visit stores and making lifelong friends at food industry conferences. Yet she also presided over a bustling household, cooking dinner for the family most every evening. From the couple's first trip to Europe-and her first airplane ride-in 1950 to worldwide travel in their later years, Lena found herself embarked on adventures she could not have imagined as a child attending a one-room schoolhouse in central Michigan.
