An Alphabet for Gourmets
In Alphabet for Gourmets, M.F.K. Fisher arranges a selection of her essays in a whimsical way that reveals the breadth and depth of her passion. From A for (dining) alone to Z for Zakuski, "a Russian hors d'oeuvre," Fisher alights on both longtime obsessions and idiosyncratic digressions. As usual, she liberates her readers from caution and slavish adherence to culinary tradition-- and salts her writings with a healthy dose of humor.

Review: An Alphabet for GourmetsUser Review - Jeanette - Goodreads
I started reading this once, and only made it to about D or E before becoming distracted by The Gastronomical Me, which is contained in the same volume. I'll give it another try, and see if I can get all the way to Z for Zakuski this time. Read full review

Thank you, Goodreads, for reminding me I said I was reading this. I don't have a lot of pithy/useful commentary, but I have loved everything I have ever read by MFK Fisher. Do you like food, and also reading? Read her. Love her. Read full review
