The Art of Eating


Without exageration, this remains one of the greatest book of food writing the world has ever known, and profoundly influenced my writing, cooking, living, and understand of the relationship between food and culture. It is filled with warm, loving and concisely poetic writing on everyday eating, like this from How Not to Boil an Egg. Probably one of the most private things in the world is an egg until it is broken.

When asked: Why did she choose to write about food and hunger? M.F.K. Fisher wrote: ‘When I write about hunger, I am really writing about love and the hunger for it, and warmth, and the love of it . . . and then the warmth and richness and fine reality of hunger satisfied.’
