The death of Sheila Lukins, the cookbook author and one-time Upper West Side gourmet food shop owner last week, prompted an outpouring of memories about foodways in the 1980s.  Kim Severson of the Times wrote a charming essay in this Sunday’s paper about how Lukins’ chicken Marbella was a dinner party staple of that decade.  Severson then goes on to document the changes that have taken place at the dinner table since then.  Among them: now, bacon, not chicken, reigns supreme.

Enjoy and Happy Labor Day!
