Fisher's books are an amalgam of food literature, travel, and memoir.

Aileen Ah-Tye is a photojournalist who met M. F. K. Fisher on assignment for UPI. She discovered she shared Fisher's background in news, as well as her affinity for France. Ah-Tye lives in San Francisco.

Reviews

M.F.K. Fisher's Provence is an essay and photo book that combines the words of the great food writer with images from photojournalist Aileen Ah-Tye. Fisher's lyrical prose and scenes of everyday grace caught by Ah-Tye's lens will remind readers of the cultural gentility that is France. The project sprang from the photographer's desire to illustrate life in Provence as the writer experienced it. The effort will leave you refreshed and inspired.--Christian Science Monitor
