"Western tales, together with detective stories, were something of an addiction. [Yeats' daughter] remembered how once in a delirious fever he shouted out, "Send for the Sheriff!""

M.F.K. Fisher and Me: A memoir of Food and Friendship

Title: M.F.K. Fisher and Me: A memoir of Food and Friendship
By: Jeannette Ferrary

If only it were my kitchen! I would prove to both Jeannette and Mary Frances that when I scramble eggs, or sear a pork chop, it was their advice that helped me make them turn out so "right." What serendipity! Jeannette is a cookbook writer and writes M.F.K. a fan letter and darned if M.F.K. doesn't write her back! Jeannette visits Mary Frances in Napa in her very own kitchen and through Jeanette's observations, we learn so much about Mary Frances' lifestyle. The easy chatty writing style is interspersed with biographical notes of this important icon who wrote "The Gastronomical Me" and "How To Cook A Wolf." Really adds to one's collection of cookbooks!
