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

From the Publisher

With an introduction by Prue Leith
'A poet of the appetites' John Updike

‘M. F. K. Fisher is one of the best of food writers. She is witty, wise, unpretentious. She makes you laugh, tells you stories, intrigues your mind, takes you on her travels’ Jane Grigson

In one of her most celebrated books, the doyenne of food writers offers us more than 140 of her favourite and most famous recipes. Here are dishes for every course of every meal – from ‘Teasers and Titbits’, through ‘Some Seeds of this Planet’ to ‘A Plethora of Puddings’. Whether simple or esoteric, all are served with an inimitable mixture of wit, anecdote and practicality.

‘The perfect bedside read…full of good tales, told with wit and wisdom. And it is a damn good cookbook’ Prue Leith

‘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 and letters are one feast after another’ Frank McCourt

‘Mrs Fisher is as talented a writer as she is a cook…I do not know of anyone in the United States who writes better prose’ W. H. Auden

About the Author

Born in Michigan in 1908, M. F. K. Fisher developed her love of cooking in France, where she lived with her first husband, Al Fisher. She began to write about food in 1935. In 1938 she moved to Switzerland with her second husband, the painter Dillwyn Parish. After his death in 1941 she returned to California and several years later married the publisher Donald Friede, with whom she had two daughters. In the early 1960s she became active in the American civil rights movement and went to Mississippi as a volunteer teacher. She died in 1992.
