"Since Mrs. Fisher wrote [An Alphabet for Gourmets], naturally it is witty, pungent and highly civilized, but also it has a special charm...It not only guides and titillates; it warms."--Rex Stout, The New York Times Book Review
"Full of sound counsel, shrewd observation, luscious memories of dinners eaten and wines drunk, and a lot of common sense spiced with personal recollection. It's a good mixture."-- J.H. Jackson, San Francisco Chronicle
"Entertaining and knowledgeable."--The New Yorker
