A collection of essays on food, love, and guilty pleasures from the pioneering culinary writer whose delightful prose offers “one feast after another” (Frank McCourt).
Mary Frances Kennedy Fisher is hailed as one of America’s preeminent writers about gastronomy, but her work reaches far beyond the limits of that genre. Whether the subject of her fancy is the lowly, unassuming potato or the love life of that aphrodisiac mollusk the oyster, she explores the complexities of the world with an all-consuming curiosity. In this collection of some of her finest works, Fisher demonstrates a palette well-trained not only in gastronomical masterpieces, but in life’s best pleasures as well.
Love in a Dish . . . and Other Culinary Delights is nothing less than an instruction manual on how to live, eat, and love. Compiled by the prolific researcher and culinary enthusiast Anne Zimmerman, these essays celebrate our lustful appetites, as in “Once a Tramp, Always . . . “ and “Love in a Dish.”
