5.0 out of 5 stars A must-read for M.F.K. Fisher fans and foodies alike, February 17, 2011
Utilizing information painstakingly gathered during years of coast-to-coast research, biographer Anne Zimmerman leads the reader through Fisher's formative years as an author, delving into her complex relationships with family, friends and lovers along the way. As one would expect in the biography of a beloved gastronome, Zimmerman's account often evokes the pleasures of the table--documenting everything from Fisher's simple peasant meals in Mexico to mouth-watering feasts in France.

A page-turner until the end, the book recounts Fisher's personal struggles, scandals, passions, and triumphs in a voice that is almost fond yet always candid. Fans of Fisher will delight in finding her unique, rich voice liberally sprinkled throughout, as excerpts from her private journals and published works seamlessly weave with Zimmerman's easy, flowing narrative. Fisher's numerous exploits and adventures will leave the reader often astounded yet always rooting for the woman whose unapologetic pursuit of pleasure could never be tamed.

2.0 out of 5 stars Worked great...for one day, December 1, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: 5.5 Qt. Oval Slow Cooker - Red
I purchased this item because it was rated highly by several independent reviewers and I liked the feature that allows the cooking time to be chosen in increments of 30 minutes. But when I initially plugged in the slow cooker, it smelled like burning electrical wires. My husband assured me that it was just the typical "new item" smell and not to worry. I did notice a bit of smoke coming from the electrical panel area and it seemed to me that the outside of the slow cooker was hotter than it should have been (very warm to the touch). But it seemed to cook the first meal okay so I thought that must just be the way it was. When I plugged it in today (second day of owning it), the electrical panel lights flashed, but it wouldn't allow me to select a heat setting or time. Basically, it was fried. I am sending this back for a refund and will be looking for a different slow cooker instead.
