"More of a love letter to food than a cookbook..."

An opening by famous food writer M.F.K. Fisher, who is known to describe food the way others describe sex, sets the tone for the journey through Sustenance and Desire. More of a love letter to food than a cookbook, this compilation of poems and prose pieces — complemented by paintings from the editor — is a great read for literary gourmands and food-loving couples alike, which is why it earned a spot on our list!
