That's not exactly true. Irma Bombauer was 54 years old when she published "The Joy of Cooking" and wrote it because her husband committed suicide and she needed money to support her family. She learned the basics of cooking from her husband, but was not a good cook herself. Most of the recipes in the book came from acquaintances. It's actually a pretty interesting story.

Emily Post and her granddaughter (who took over after she died) were both young for the etiquette rules of society.
Again, not to split hairs, but Emily Post was 50 years old when she wrote "Etiquette in Society, in Business, in Politics, and at Home".
