LINKcat libraries provide little shelf space for titles by 'rule-breaking cookbook author' Barbara Kafka

'Rule-breaking' included in print headline.

Barbara Kafka, Cookbook Author and Food Writer, Dies at 84.  (The New York Times, 6/5/2018)
Ms. Kafka would crown her career with two Lifetime Achievement Awards and the Cookbook Hall of Fame Award from the James Beard Foundation. But she was hardly destined to develop into a culinary virtuoso. Yes, as a child of well-to-do parents, she was exposed to haute cuisine when she dined at fancy restaurants, or when the family cook replicated her favorite recipes by famous chefs. 
But when Ms. Kafka graduated from college, she wanted to be a poet, or to write about art. She was allergic to gluten and was lactose intolerant. She couldn’t boil an egg.
