A lovely book which deserves to be devoured
In Alphabet for Gourmets, M.F.K. Fisher arranges a selection of her essays in a whimsical way that reveals the breadth and depth of her passion. From A for (dining) alone to Z for Zakuski, “a Russian hors d’oeuvre,” Fisher alights on both long time obsessions and idiosyncratic digressions. As usual, she liberates her readers from caution and slavish adherence to culinary tradition– and salts her writings with a healthy dose of humour.
Mary Frances Kennedy Fisher (July 3, 1908 – June 22, 1992) was an American food writer. She was a founder of the Napa Valley Wine Library. Over her lifetime she wrote 27 books, including a translation of The Physiology of Taste by Brillat-Savarin. Fisher believed that eating well was just one of the “arts of life” and explored this in her writing. W. H. Auden once remarked, “I do not know of anyone in the United States who writes better prose.”
