"In “An Extravagant Hunger,” Anne Zimmerman mines Fisher’s journals and letters to create a rich portrait of a troubled, talented woman with a hearty appetite."
Sarah Halzack, The Washingon Post
Love in a Dish . . . and Other Culinary Delights is an instructional manual on how to live, eat, and love brought together by prolific researcher and culinary enthusiast Anne Zimmerman. With great care she has selected essays that forgive, and celebrate, our lustful appetites, as in “Once a Tramp, Always . . . ” and “Love in a Dish.”
The pieces in Musings on Wine span M.F.K. Fisher's notable career, from her indulgent, wine-drinking days in 1930s France to her years as a gastronomic grande dame living in California's wine country in the 1960s, 70s, and 80s.
