M.F.K. Fisher among the pots and pans celebrating her kitchens by Joan Reardon ( )
7 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 1,025 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
From her very first book, Serve It Forth, M.F.K. Fisher wrote about her ideal kitchen. In her subsequent publications, she revisited the many kitchens she had known and the foods she savored in them to express her ideas about the art of eating. M.F.K. Fisher among the Pots and Pans, interspersed with recipes and richly illustrated with original watercolors, is a retrospective of Mary Frances Kennedy Fisher's life as it unfolded in those homey settings--from Fisher's childhood in Whittier, California, to the kitchens of Dijon, where she developed her taste for French foods and wines; from the id

Poet of the appetites : the lives and loves of M.F.K. Fisher by Joan Reardon ( Book )
3 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 520 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In more than thirty books, M.F.K. Fisher forever changed the way Americans understood not only the art of eating but also the art of living. Whether considering the oyster or describing how to cook a wolf, she addressed the universal needs "for food and security and love." Readers were instantly drawn into her circle of husbands and lovers, artists and artisans; they felt they knew Fisher herself, whether they encountered her as a child with a fried-egg sandwich in her pocket, a young bride awakening to the glories of French food, or a seductress proffering the first peas of the season." "Oldest child, wife, mother, mistress, self-made career woman, trailblazing writer - Fisher served up each role with panache. But like many other master stylists, she was also a master mythologizer. Her portraits and scenarios were often unrecognizable to those on whom they were based, and her own emotions and experiences remained cloaked in ambiguity."--Jacket
A stew or a story : an assortment of short works by M.F.K. Fisher by Joan Reardon ( Book )
2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 373 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"A Stew or a Story covers five decades of Fisher's writing for such notable publications as Gourmet, Bon Appetit, Atlantic Monthly, Harper's Bazaar, The New York Times, The New Yorker, Ladies' Home Journal, and Vogue. But collected here also are articles nearly impossible to find from lesser-known, more ephemeral magazines. Essays on people, places, and of course food, mix here with delightful fiction to become a delectable feast."--BOOK JACKET

"M. F. K. Fisher, Julia Child, and Alice Waters celebrates the accomplishments and friendships of three women who changed the way Americans think about food and cooking, dining and pleasure." "In a series of three overlapping biographical portraits, Reardon reveals the private lives behind their public personas. Tracing major developments in their careers and quoting extensively from letters they exchanged, she recounts the times and places at which their lives intersected and shares testimonies of the friendship and respect that grew among them."--BOOK JACKET

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
With her outsize personality, Julia Child is known around the world by her first name alone. But despite that familiarity, how much do we really know of the inner Julia' Now more than 200 letters exchanged between Julia and Avis DeVoto, her friend and unofficial literary agent memorably introduced in the hit movie Julie ; Julia, open the window on Julia's deepest thoughts and feelings. This riveting correspondence, in print for the first time, chronicles the blossoming of a unique and lifelong friendship between the two women and the turbulent process of Julia's creation of Mastering the Art of French Cooking, one of the most influential cookbooks ever written. Frank, bawdy, funny, exuberant, and occasionally agonized, these letters show Julia, first as a new bride in Paris, then becoming increasingly worldly and adventuresome as she follows her diplomat husband in his postings to Nice, Germany, and Norway. With commentary by the noted food historian Joan Reardon, and covering topics as diverse as the lack of good wine in the United States, McCarthyism, and sexual mores, these astonishing letters show America on the verge of political, social, and gastronomic transformation
