How to cook a wolf

Fisher, M. F. K. (Mary Frances Kennedy), 1908-19922020
Written in 1942 to inspire courage in those daunted by wartimes shortages, How to Cook a Wolf has continued to rally readers and cooks during times of both scarcity and plenty. Written with her trademark wit and warm wisdom, Fisher shares her timeless tips for keeping up spirits and appetites when ingredients are in short supply. Instead of regretting what we don t have, she teaches us how to savour what we do, offering dozens of recipe ideas, from soups and simple omelettes, to baking bread and sprucing up tinned food. Knowing that the last thing hungry people need are hints on cutting back and making do, Fisher gives us license to dream, experiment and invent adventurous and delicious meals from whatever we can salvage from the back of the cupboard. When we exist without thought or thanksgiving, writes Fisher, we are not men, but beasts. In How to Cook a Wolf she shows us how to feed our hungers and nourish our souls, even when fear is in our hearts and the wolf is at the door. 'Witty, irreverent and amazingly relevant. Fisher will make you giggle, I promise, but also give you sound advice how to cook with limited ingredients.
