Review


Praise for M.F.K. Fisher

"[Fisher] writes as one intelligent adult to another—practically, often profoundly, and always beautifully. If eating means more to you than steak drowned in bottled sauces, then she's what you've been looking for." —The San Francisco Examiner

"If I were still teaching high school English, I'd use Fisher's books to show how to write simply, how to enjoy food and drink, but, most of all, how to enjoy life. Her books are one feast after another." —Frank McCourt, author of Angela's Ashes

About the Author

In a career that extended over seven decades until her death in 1992, Mary Frances Kennedy Fisher wrote twenty-six books with a prose style at once vivid, elegant, and a little bit wicked. Her books include The Gastronomical Me, How to Cook a Wolf, Consider the Oyster, and Serve It Forth. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

34 of 34 people found the following review helpful By Sophia VINE VOICE on August 16, 2000
Format: Paperback
"With Bold Knife and Fork" was the last book of culinary and writing great M.F.K. Fisher to focus solely on food. This book is a wonderful collection of recipes, with an especially interesting section on vegetables; and also contains humorous and moving anecdotes, written in excellent, finished prose. Only M.F.K. Fisher can make eating mashed potatoes with ketchup sound like a religious ritual; or make you laugh when discussing how a romance came to an end when a snoopy, ill-informed potential partner ruined a sauce for a dinner she was making. This is a terrific book for diehard Fisher fans, but also a very good, intelligent, and amusing cookbook in its own right.

Format: Paperback
Fisher fans know of her way with evocative prose, but she's damn funny as well; that's why this book is my favorite. She is in top form in this one, and her tendency to be a little, dare I say it, pretentious is less evident!

Being an MFK aficionado, I am not surprised by how delightful this little journal-cum-cookbook is to read. It has claimed a spot in my too-small kitchen library shelf and I look forward to dipping into MFK's breezy, uncomplicated recipes.
