Review:

"This book is brimful of joie-de-vivre; it’s a delicious mix of witty anecdote and practical instruction" ( Simple Things)

From the Publisher:

With an introduction by Prue Leith
'A poet of the appetites' John Updike

‘M. F. K. Fisher is one of the best of food writers. She is witty, wise, unpretentious. She makes you laugh, tells you stories, intrigues your mind, takes you on her travels’ Jane Grigson

‘The perfect bedside read…full of good tales, told with wit and wisdom. And it is a damn good cookbook’ Prue Leith

‘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 and letters are one feast after another’ Frank McCourt

‘Mrs Fisher is as talented a writer as she is a cook…I do not know of anyone in the United States who writes better prose’ W. H. Auden
