"Though the attentiveness of MFK Fisher is characteristic of all her writing, nowhere is it more amiably expressed than in her reminiscences comprising Two Kitchens in Provence. Colorful and gently eccentric, these essays, paeans to eating locally, recall the writer's pursuit of food during her stays in Provence" [from the prospectus]. Alice Waters contributes a moving tribute to Fisher, including an account of her first meeting with the writer.
