About the Author

Alice B. Toklas was Gertrude Stein's secretary-companion. For many years they lived together in France, Toklas cooking while Stein was writing. She is memorialized in Stein's most famous book, The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas.

Ruth Reichl is the bestselling author of the memoirs Tender at the Bone, Comfort Me With Apples, Garlic and Sapphires, and For You, Mom, Finally; the novel Delicious!; and, most recently, the cookbook My Kitchen Year. She was editor in chief of Gourmet magazine for ten years.

M. F. K. Fisher (1908-1992) was a preeminent American food writer. She was also a founder of the Napa Valley Wine Library. She wrote some twenty-seven books, including a translation of The Physiology of Taste by Brillat-Savarin. Her books are an amalgam of food literature, travel, and memoir. Fisher believed that eating well was just one of the "arts of life" and explored this in her writing.
