"M. F. K. Fisher ... brings onstage a peach or a brace of quail and shows us history, cities, fantasies, memories, emotions."--Patricia Storace, The New York Review of Books
"M. F. K. Fisher is our greatest food writer because she puts food in the mount, the mind and the imagination all at the same time. Beyond the gastronomical bravura, she is a passionate woman; food is her metaphor."--Shana Alexander

A window into a world that is long gone and one that I wish I could drop in on. She is a great writer
and has such a quietly eloquent insight into people, places and food!
Whittier ca. It surrounds the reader with the love of good food within her childhood and the exclusion of her family in the community
I was interested in the background of one of the early "foodies". I have enjoyed the author's other books. This answered a number of my questions about how MFK Fisher got interested in food, so was really receptive to different tastes when she first moved to France.
I have recommended this book to several friends.
