Product Description

Review

Praise for M.F.K. Fisher"[Fisher] writes as one intelligent adult to another--practically, often profoundly, and always beautifully. If eating means more to you than steak drowned in bottled sauces, then she's what you've been looking for." --"The San Francisco Examiner""If I were still teaching high school English, I'd use Fisher's books to show how to write simply, how to enjoy food and drink, but, most of all, how to enjoy life. Her books are one feast after another." --Frank McCourt, author of "Angela's Ashes" --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Book Description

'A poet of the appetites' John Updike --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

First Sentence
IT IS MODISH IN THIS DECADE to refer to the anatomy of a thing or a prob , although Robert Burton really jumped the gun in 1621 with his philosophical exposition of melancholy. Read the first page

4 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Neil French on 13 July 2003
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
In this age of cook-hysteria, and the constant search for new and generally worse 'stars of the saucepan', the fact that an entire series of the best books ever written on cooking and life is going slowly out of print tells you more about publishers than you wanted to know. I guess the problem is, the author's dead, and is thus unlikely to have a TV series.
Buy this for starters, and harangue the publishers to release, at the very least, "The Art of Eating"...the best book ever written about food, and, as I said, about life. That's a five-star job, and more.

A memoir and cookbook both 17 Aug. 2000
By Sophia - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
"With Bold Knife and Fork" was the last book of culinary and writing great M.F.K. Fisher to focus solely on food. This book is a wonderful collection of recipes, with an especially interesting section on vegetables; and also contains humorous and moving anecdotes, written in excellent, finished prose. Only M.F.K. Fisher can make eating mashed potatoes with ketchup sound like a religious ritual; or make you laugh when discussing how a romance came to an end when a snoopy, ill-informed potential partner ruined a sauce for a dinner she was making. This is a terrific book for diehard Fisher fans, but also a very good, intelligent, and amusing cookbook in its own right.

My favorite Fisher book 1 April 2011
By Auntie L - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Fisher fans know of her way with evocative prose, but she's damn funny as well; that's why this book is my favorite. She is in top form in this one, and her tendency to be a little, dare I say it, pretentious is less evident!
Classic MFK wit and go-to recipes 11 Jun. 2014
By heidi d. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Being an MFK aficionado, I am not surprised by how delightful this little journal-cum-cookbook is to read. It has claimed a spot in my too-small kitchen library shelf and I look forward to dipping into MFK's breezy, uncomplicated recipes.
Just one of my favorite books 23 Feb. 2014
