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

Reviews


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"
