Synopsis: Dione Lucas (1909 - 1971)was an English chef and the first female graduate of Le Cordon Bleu. Lucas was fundamental in establishing an extension of the famous Paris culinary school in London in the 1930s. Lucas worked as a hotel chef in Hamburg before World War II and later claimed that Adolf Hitler often dined there and had a taste for stuffed squab. She later opened a Cordon Bleu restaurant and a cooking school in New York. She also ran the Egg Basket restaurant by Bloomingdale's in New York. One of the earliest television cook-show hosts, Lucas's "To The Queen's Taste" was broadcast on CBS in 1948-1949 from the restaurant. Among other things, Lucas helped to introduce the omelet to the American palate. She can be seen as a predecessor and influence to Julia Child. Marion Gorman was a friend to whom Lucas willed her papers. Gorman used them to complete work on The Dione Lucas Book of French Cooking in 1973. Gorman and Lucas had also collaborated on producing this book, full of health-conscious French recipes, before Lucas' death.
