(Food Writing) Fisher, M.F.K. An Alphabet for Gourmets.
Introduction By Paul Levy, Illustrations By Ian Beck. Cloth-backed pictorial boards, slipcase. London: Folio Society, 2005.
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 longtime 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 humor. Fine.
