"Written to inspire courage in those daunted by wartimes shortages, How to Cook a Wolf continues to rally cooks during times of plenty, reminding them that providing sustenance requires more than putting food on the table. M. F. K. Fisher knew that the last thing hungry people needed were hints on cutting back and making do. Instead, she gives her readers license to dream, to experiment, to construct adventurous and delicious meals as a bulwark against a dreary, meager present. Her fine prose provides reason in itself to draw our chairs close to the hearth we can still enjoy her company and her exhortations to celebrate life by eating well. / M. F. K. Fisher (1908-1992) is the author of numerous books of essays and reminiscences, many of which have become American classics."-Publisher.
M.F.K. Fisher is rightly famous as a food writer. This is a humorous collection of tips on how to get by during wartime rationing. I
She includes a few recipes. Enjoyable.

For food lovers and cooks
Written in the 1940s as a guide to making the most of sparse meals, MFK Fisher gives away both her tastes and her class in her writing. Both an amazing cook and a great writer, Fisher focusing mainly on the food, but brings both a sense of humor and personality to the recipes.
