Remember when you have discovered a new to you author and her writing takes your breath away and you cannot stop until you devour every book she's written?
I felt that way about M. F. K. Fisher decades ago when I discovered her. Last year I ordered her The Gastronomical Me published in 1943, feeling fortunate to find a wartime copy instead of a reprint.
Since today is her birthday, I though I would share this book with you in case it is new to you. With this autobiographical book you get travel, food and love.
As an armchair traveler I love books that let me see a country not as a tourist, and through Mary Frances Kennedy Fisher's pen you do, whether it is Switzerland, France, Mexico or California that she writes of.
