Reviews


Praise for Love in a Dish . . . and Other Culinary Delights by M.F.K. Fisher

"Fisher was scarcely the first writer to connect the pleasures of food and sex, but she is among the cleverest to do so." --Booklist

Praise for M.F.K. Fisher

"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

"She writes about fleeting tastes and feasts vividly, excitingly, sensuously, exquisitely. There is almost a wicked thrill in following her uninhibited track through the glories of the good life." --James Beard

"M.F.K. Fisher is our greatest food writer because she puts food in the mount, the mind and the imagination all at the same time. Beyond the gastronomical bravura, she is a passionate woman; food is her metaphor." --Shana Alexander

"I do not know of anyone in the United States . . . who writes better prose." --W. H. Auden
