Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
In 1977, Ferrary eagerly accepted an invitation to lunch with Fisher, extended in response to Ferrary's recent fan letter. That was the first of many visits, usually at Fisher's home in Glen Ellen, Calif., where the two women talked about wining and dining, plants and people, during the ensuing 14 years. In time Ferrary became a food writer herself, following the footsteps of the incomparable M.F.K.F., doyenne of travel/culinary arts and author of 24 books respected around the world. This adulatory memoir is brightened by descriptions of Fisher's uncommon sense, taste and sometimes acid wit, but it really tells more about Ferrary than about her friend, who, as her readers know, can be cagey, disclosing only what she chooses to make known. This tantalizing view--``a collection of appreciation''--of an elusive figure reveals little unfamiliar material but will surely please Fisher's innumerable fans. (May)
Library Journal
Ferrary, a food writer and coauthor of two cookbooks, first met the inimitable Fisher more than a decade ago when Fisher invited her to lunch. Although Ferrary wondered at the time why she had been singled out for this honor, an enduring friendship was struck, and years later Fisher confided that she wished Ferrary was writing her life. This engaging memoir is the result--a collection of vignettes of shared food adventures, more orthodox biographical explorations, and the author's own thoughts on just who Fisher is. Ferrary writes with warmth, admiration, and exasperated fondness about her formidable subject, and she provides an honest but appreciative portrait of this fascinating author/gastronome/food writer extraordinaire.-- Judith C. Sutton, Sutton's Place Cuisine, New York
