An Alphabet for Gourmets. With Drawings by Marvin Bileck.

New York: Viking Press, 1949. First Printing of the First US Edition. A Fine copy in a Very Good price clipped dust jacket with sunning to the spine and a closed edge tear to the front panel. 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. Item #26503
