GLADYS BERTHA BAXTER
1908-1987

Gladys Baxter was born in Fresno, California on July 1, 1908. Her family were Armenian immigrants from the Bitlis area of Turkey. She was the youngest of eight children, and had five older sisters who were excellent cooks, as was her mother. She naturally learned from them and became one of the most respected Armenian cooks in the San Joaquin Valley. She had no difficulty in cooking for two or two hundred. She very seldom consulted a cookbook and measuring devices were seldom used in her cooking. A pinch of this and a scoop of that was all that was needed to perform magic in her kitchen. In 1930 she married Avedis Baxter, an auto mechanic from Fowler, California. They had two sons whom she taught her culinary and domestic skills. Ironically she spent her last few years with Alzheimer's disease which caused her to forget her amazing art in Armenian cookery. In her memory, I felt it incumbent upon me to celebrate her love of cooking by sharing with you a few of her recipes.
