M.F.K. Fisher, Julia Child, James Beard, and the Reinvention of American Taste

Friday, December 06, 2013

Luke Barr talks about a culinary gathering in the winter of 1970, which bright together James Beard, M.F.K. Fisher, Julia Child, Richard Olney, Simone Beck, and Judith Jones in the South of France. They cooked and ate, talked and argued, and their conversations were chronicled by M.F.K. Fisher in journals and letters—some of which were later discovered by Luke Barr, her great-nephew. He writes about it in Provence, 1970: M.F.K. Fisher, Julia Child, James Beard, and the Reinvention of American Taste.
