When Mary Frances Kennedy Fisher began to write, her publisher warned, "Women don't write this way," so she was instructed to use the initials of M.F. K. She has been called the greatest food writer of our time; mixing recipes and instruction with reflections on life's values, she treated eating as a social occasion that satisfies a basic human need, while also providing an esthetic experience. In this program with Bill Moyers, filmed shortly before her death, Fisher describes her writing process, her intense interest in food, and shares her incredible outlook on life.
