(AP) Influential Italian cookbook author Marcella Hazan has died at the age of 89.

Her son, Giuliano Hazan, confirmed in an email Sunday that Hazan had died. Posts on Twitter and Facebook from her husband, Victor Hazan, and daughter-in-law, Lael Hazan, indicated that she died that morning at her Florida home.

Hazan was best known for her six cookbooks. They were written by her in Italian and translated into English by Victor, her husband of 57 years.

The recipes were traditional, tasty and sparse. Her famous tomato sauce contained only four ingredients: tomatoes, onion, butter and salt.

It was her 1973 cookbook, "The Classic Italian Cookbook," that led gourmets to draw comparisons between Hazan and another larger-than-life cookbook author: Julia Child.
