(Food Writing) Fisher, M.F.K. Serve it Forth.

Jacket. War Edition. NY: World Book Co., [1937, but later).

In Serve It Forth, her first book, M. F. K. Fisher takes readers on an animated journey through culinary history, beginning with the honey-loving Greeks and the immoderate Romans. Fisher recalls a hunt for snails and truffles with one of the last adepts in that art and recounts how Catherine de Medici, lonely for home cooking, touched off a culinary revolution by bringing Italian chefs to France. Each essay makes clear the absolute firmness of Fisher's taste--contrarian and unique--and her skill at stirring memory and imagination into a potent brew. Pieces of jacket lacking from spine head and upper front panel, chipping to jacket extremities, else good. An uncommon wartime edition of Fisher’s first book.
