About the Author

Mary Frances Kennedy (M.F.K.) Fisher is revered as one of America's best food writers. Her personalized essays on the pleasures of cooking and eating made her famous. Her most popular books--"Serve It Forth," "Consider the Oyster," "How to Cook a Wolf," "The Gastronomical Me," and "An Alphabet for Gourmets"--were bound into one volume--"The Art of Eating"--in 1954. In 1990, "The Art of Eating" received the James Beard Foundation Cookbook Hall of Fame Award.

Reviews

This 50th anniversary paperback reprint contains what Julia Child referred to as "the essence of M.F.K. Fisher." Fisher (1908-1992) was one of this country's earliest food writers; her eloquent yet unostentatious prose has charmed generations. The 784-page collection brings together five works originally published under separate titles: "Serve it Forth," "Consider the Oyster," "How to Cook a Wolf," "The Gastronomical Me" and "An Alphabet for Gourmets." There are also recipes scattered throughout. (Washington Post, April 28, 2004)
