Here Let Us Feast

Here Let Us Feast is more than an anthology of food writing. Though full of excerpts from such venerated and ventripotent gastrolaters as: Petronius, Apuleius, Ovid, Rabelais, as well as detailed descriptions of feasts celebrated in both British and American literature, its the author’s inimitable commentary that gives the book its real flavor.

Recently reissued to include a new essay from Betty Fussell, Here Let Us Feast offers a charming reflection on the pleasures of food and drink in the company of the woman who remains America’s pre-eminent food writer.

M.F.K Fisher, wrote thirty-three books in her lifetime, including The Art of Eating, With Bold Knife and Fork, and a translation of The Physiology of Taste by Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin.
