The Art of Eating: M.F.K. Fisher

This event is open to Miami Dade College students, faculty and staff.

The Center for Literature and Theatre celebrates trailblazing women this month, Women’s History Month, at Miami Dade College. They’re celebrating pioneering food writer and memoirist, M.F.K. Fisher, with a savory lecture and tasting of Fisher’s favorite simple dishes.

Miami-based author and professor, Lynne Barrett, will give the talk on Fisher. Barrett, who teaches writing workshops throughout the country as well as in the MFA in Creative Writing program at FIU, has long taught Fisher’s works to her graduate students. Miami Culinary Institute students will prepare tasting portions of frittata, gazpacho, fruit shortcakes and more.

Mary Frances Kennedy Fisher (1908 – 1992) was a trailblazer in combining food writing with memoir. She was raised in California, studied in France and Switzerland, translated Brillat-Savarin’s The Physiology of Taste, wrote for Hollywood and The New Yorker, founded the Napa Valley Wine Library, and wrote more than two dozens books.
