The Gastronomical Me BY M.F.K. Fisher
Wednesday, 11th April, 6.30 – 8pm
This classic 1943 work by M.F.K. Fisher is an amalgam of food literature, travel and memoir. In it she traces the development of her appetite, from her childhood in America to her arrival in Europe, where she embarked on a whole new way of eating, drinking, and living. She recounts unforgettable meals shared with an assortment of eccentric characters, set against a backdrop of mounting pre-war tensions. Here are meals as seductions, educations, diplomacies, and communions. W.H. Auden once remarked of Fisher, “I do not know of anyone in the United States who writes better prose.”
