Highly enjoyable 21 décembre 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Particularly enjoyable for her rather obscure selection of an alphabet by which to write about food. If you want more, I recommend the compendium The Art of Eating, by the same author. This woman really enjoyed food, even the simplest meal, which might even be eaten alone and enjoyed more for the experience.

A fine book to idle away with for food lovers 19 septembre 2012
Par Michael J. Edelman - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Mary Francis Kay Fisher was very much a free spirit, a woman who went where her passions took her, and the greatest- or perhaps the second greatest of these was good food. At a time when most people were leaving behind the simple, home grown food of their childhood for the new convenience foods and other modern fare, she argued passionately for what we might call slow food today: SImple, elegant fare, prepared with fresh ingredients and with passion. During World War II, when many foodstuffs were in short supply, she wrote "How To Cook A Wolf" in order to show people that a lack of things like beef, which was the centerpiece of the mid-century American diet, and to live well at the same time.

This volume is a collection of musings, remembrances and opinions organized under the alphabet. There's no real theme to the book, other than that each chapter contains one or more recipes, and each represents a strongly held opinion of Fishers, and she had a great many strongly held opinions. The first chapter is A, for dining Alone, a topic she often addressed. She finishes the chapter with recipes for Ambrosia, made with oranges, coconut and sherry, a discussion of how crepes should be served, and a condemnation of Jello salads- three unrelated topics, really, except they all touch on something she mentions in her defense of solo dining.

L is for Literature, and is obviously concerned with food references in books. Here she closes the chapter with recipes for a medieval "Herring Pye" that no one would bother to try and duplicate and a description of Garum, the classic condiment of ancient Rome, which finds its closes modern equivalent in Thai fish sauce. Why? Because Fisher thinks it interesting, and that's good enough for this reader. P is for peas, especially small, delicate, early ENglish peas, and T is for Turbot, and both chapters finish with recipes that any reader will want to try. V is for Veniality, but Fisher still manages to work in a recipe for Raspberries Romanoff. W is for Wanton, and contains Fisher's proposals for seducing a man with food... and if necessary, un-seducing.

This is, like all of Fisher's books, a delight to read whether or not you have any intention of cooking the recipes she presents, and indeed, in this book the recipes are not the point. All of FIsher's books are favorites of mine, and this one is a particular treasure. Recommended for fans of good food, independent women, free thinking, and good writing.

Exceeded expectations 20 août 2009
Par Carolyn J. Robinson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I ordered a copy of An Alphabet for Gourmets, expecting to find a softcover one similar to that in the photo. What I received was a lovely hardback copy inside a sturdy cardboard cover. The cover of the book had lovely, colorful designs on it and the inside was filled with beautiful, full color prints at the beginning of each chapter. Even the paper was higher quality, almost like cloth. This was indeed a wonderful gift book. I give kudos to the seller who went a cut above in providing this product.

Not just for Gourmets 28 juillet 2009
Par JAK in WDC - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Don't be put off by the dour photo on the cover. MFK Fisher has a lively wit and a breezy style of writing that is a joy to read. In this book she takes on topics based on the alphabet. In dining Alone, she describes the difficulty of being a food writer. She is never invited to her friend's because they think their cooking isn't good enough, so instead she goes home to a lonely supper of canned soup and crackers. The chapter on Bachelors describes a meal that on the surface is dreadfull but is made delightful due to the care and effort of the gentleman to provide hospitality to his guest. Every chapter is full of charm and the recipes are quite good. A very enjoyable book.

Cookbook nuts 24 février 2011
Par Judith Ann Greger - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This woman was a legend in the field of cookbooks and food in her time. I found her writing simple and from the heart about her relationships between food and people. It was comforting to me because this is eloquent when talking about everyday things. Much like my letters from my grandmother. It's a different era. I love the writing but it's not novel that you will read from front to back. I suggest that you read a chapter every now and then.
