"Mary Frances Kennedy Fisher est aimée et admirée pour son originalité et pour sa fantaisie autant que pour son intelligence et son style. Le poète W H. Auden n'hésita pas à la reconnaître, dès ses débuts, comme "la plus grande styliste de langue anglaise". Elle fut aussi la traductrice en anglais de la Physiologie du goût, de Jean-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin. Son oeuvre complète est en cours de traduction. Mille anecdotes aussi divertissantes qu'appétissantes : de la façon dont on maltraite la pomme de terre et comment on peut lui rendre sa dignité ; de la parcimonie gastronomique des Grecs de l'Antiquité, de la gloutonnerie des Romains ; sans oublier les malheureux sans papilles

Essays on people, places, and of course food, mix here with delightful fiction to become a delectable feast."--Jacket

In 1929, a newly married M.F.K. Fisher said goodbye to a milquetoast American culinary upbringing and sailed with her husband to Dijon, where she tasted real French cooking for the first time. The Gastronomical Me is a chronicle of her passionate embrace of a whole new way of eating, drinking, and celebrating the senses. As she recounts memorable meals shared with an assortment of eccentric and fascinating characters, set against a backdrop of mounting pre-war tensions, we witness the formation not only of her taste but of her character and her prodigious talent
Consider the oyster by M. F. K Fisher( Book )
27 editions published between 1941 and 2016 in 7 languages and held by 299 libraries worldwide
"M.F.K. Fisher, whom John Updike has called our "poet of the appetites," here pays tribute to that most delicate and enigmatic of foods--the oyster. As she tells of oysters found in stews, in soups, roasted, baked, fried, prepared à la Rockefeller or au naturel--and of the pearls sometimes found therein--Fisher describes her mother's joy at encountering oyster loaf in a girls' dorm in he 1890's, recalls her own initiation into the "strange cold succulence" of raw oysters as a young woman in Marseille and Dijon, and explores both the bivalve's famed aphrodisiac properties and its equally notorious gut-wrenching powers. Plumbing the "dreadful but exciting" life of the oyster, Fisher invites readers to share in the comforts and delights that this delicate edible evokes, and enchants us along the way with her characteristically wise and witty prose."

Fisher scans the centuries to reveal the ancient sources that clarify the Marseille of today and the indestructible nature of its people A delightful journey filtered through the senses of a profound writer.
