SYNOPSIS
 The Art of Eating: The Life and Appetites of M.F.K. Fisher is a feature documentary about the exciting life and lasting impact of the intrepid mid-century California food writer M.F.K. Fisher, who elevated cooking from a domestic chore to a critical study of life itself. Described by W.H. Auden as “the best prose writer in America,” the underrecognized Fisher introduced continental sensibilities to California’s burgeoning culinary world, while she transformed the traditional background figure of a woman in the kitchen into a living, breathing subject with dazzling ideas, passionate emotions, and insatiable appetites.

INTERVIEWS

Alice Waters

“I’ve admired many women. They all have what Mary Frances had, which is a kind of confidence in herself to live life the way she wanted.”

Jacques Pepin

“Mary Frances was way out of her time,
talking about food in a way that people have not done before.”

John Ash

“If it hadn’t been for James Beard and Julia Child and M.F.K. Fisher and Jacques Pepin, I don’t know where American cuisine would be today.”

Ruth Reichl

“She’s telling you to pay attention to every sense. She does it in an extremely graphic, sensual, and I would say feminine way.”
