Here Let Us Feast

Here Let Us Feast is more than an anthology of food writing, for beyond the quotes from Petronius, Apuleius, Ovid, Rabelais, Plato are intriguing descriptions of feasts from British and American literature along with the author’s own inimitable commentary.

Now reissued to include a new essay from Betty Fussell, the book offers a copious buffet of excerpts and reflections on the pleasures of food and drink found in literature.

M.F.K Fisher, the author of such books as The Art of Eating, The Cooking of Provincial France, and With Bold Knife and Fork, remains America’s pre-eminent American food writer. She wrote thirty-three books in her lifetime, including a translation of The Physiology of Taste by Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin.
