Zelayeta, born in Mexico, lived mostly in California where she struggled through the Depression and went on to publish several classics on Mexican and Spanish cooking despite losing her eyesight as a young child. She hosted a popular cooking show with strings tied to each ankle, so a tug on the proper string would let her know which camera to face.
