M.F.K. Fisher and Me: A Memoir of Food and Friendship Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the world of food, M.F.K. Fisher remains the patron saint. No one in our launguage has bestowed such dignity and such mythic dimension upon the taking of our daily bread. M.F.K. Fisher and Me takes us behind the persona of the woman who revolutionized the way Americans think about food. Ferrary shows us Fisher in her daily life: at work and play in her kitchen, sipping drinks on the veranda of her California ranch; flirting like a coquette; struggling valiantly against the ravages of age--and through it all never failing to surprise--if not shock--even those who think they know her best. M.F.K. Fischer was a woman who shunned being portrayed, yet Jeannette Ferrary has given us an intimate look at her life.

M.F.K. Fisher and Me is a story of a young woman's relationship with a famous and charismatic older woman. Such friendsips are rare and valuable, and they are rarely brough tto life with the eloquance and zest that Jeannette Ferrary brings to M.F.K. Fisher and Me.

Synopsis:

In a heart-warming story of author Jeannette Ferrary's relationship with the famous and charismatic M.F.K Fisher, the author takes readers behind the persona of the woman who revolutionized the way American's think about food.
