Summary
Exhibition ran from September 8 through October 27, 2008. A Delicious Obsession: The Work of M.F.K. Fisher celebrates the 100th anniversary of the birth of well-known culinary author M.F.K. Fisher (1908-1992) in an exhibition of her work drawn from the extensive collection of Randall Tarpey-Schwed. Called 2Americas greatest writer3 by W.H. Auden, Mary Frances Kennedy Fisher was a beautiful, well-travelled, passionate writer of food and life. Through hundreds of articles for The New Yorker magazine and in numerous books that have been translated into many languages, Fisher wrote of her perceptive thoughts on food. Fisher spent her childhood and much of her adult life in California, where she had a major influence on the development of regional cooking and what we now know as California Cuisine
