Summary "M. F. K. Fisher among the Pots and Pans, interspersed with recipes and richly illustrated with photographs and original watercolors, is a retrospective of Mary Frances Kennedy Fisher's life as it unfolded in those homey settings from Fisher's childhood in Whittier, California, to her coming of age in Dijon, where she developed her taste for French foods and wines; from the idyllic kitchen at Le Paquis to the isolation of her home in Hemet, California; and finally to her last days in the Napa and Sonoma Valleys."--BOOK JACKET
