The Art of Eating …only wise men know the art of eating. —Brillat-Savarin There is a communion of more than bodies when bread is broken and wine is drunk. And that is my answer when people ask me, Why do you write about hunger, and not wars or love?
So M. F. K. Fisher begins The Gastronomical Me, one of the five memorable volumes collected together here in The Art of Eating. The five books cover an eclectic array of thoughts, memories, and recipes, from World War I vignettes of frugality at the table to a consideration of the social status of vegetables. Her recipes range from those for all manner of oysters, dressed and undressed, to Cold Buttermilk Soup, and are accompanied by the remarks and observations that provoked W. H. Auden to say, I do not know of anyone in the United States today who writes better prose.
M. F. K. Fisher evokes the magic that shimmers just beneath the surface of the most commonplace, everyday experiences in prose you can wrap around your soul. —Richard Sax, Chocolatier
M. F. K. Fisher is one of the best food writers. She makes you laugh, tells you stories, intrigues your mind, gives you an appetite, takes you on her travels. She is witty, wise, and unpretentious. —Jane Grigson
One of the world's finest food writers and, in the eyes of many, the grand dame of gastronomy…M. F. K. Fisher has remained our guiding light, the source of infinite gastronomic and philosophic wisdom, the model of what a truly refined food writer should strive for. —James Villas, Bon Appétit

Dish sponges are havens for bacteria because they thrive in warm, wet places. The only way to prevent them from forming is to have a dry sponge, so make sure never to leave a wet sponge lying in your sink; you can use a sink-side metal basket to help your sponge dry out. And to avoid cross-contamination, make sure to use a separate sponge for washing dishes and cleaning countertops.
