Join us at the end of the month for a discussion of M.F.K. Fisher's The Art of Eating

Eating well is an art and (Mary Frances) Fisher reminds us that this is at the essence behind this renowned food writer with this collection of essays. A 50th Anniversary edition printed in 2004 brings together this 784-page text of five works originally published under separate titles : "Serve it Forth," "Consider the Oyster," "How to Cook a Wolf," "The Gastronomical Me" and "An Alphabet for Gourmets." With recipes scattered throughout, this James Beard award winning text is sure to get you excited about the practice of sourcing good food and being an active participant in good eating.

We will be meeting at the Cellar Room (downstairs) at Beermiscuous in the Lakeview neighborhood on June 30th at 6pm. Didn't finish the book? Not a problem. (It's a big one, we know.) We welcome the chance to commune together over good food, good drinks and good conversation. Regardless of if you read the entire book cover to cover, or only made it through a handful of pages of one of the titles, we'd love to hear what you think - about the book, about the author, about our modern day relationships to food prep and consumption and more!

Please bring a snack or small dish to share if you are able. Drinks available for purchase at the bar. See you there!
