How to Cook a Wolf

How to Cook a Wolf, by MFK Fisher

If you haven’t read MFK Fisher, let this be your introduction. In How to Cook a Wolf, written during World War II, is ostensibly a book of how to make do with the ingredients on hand, but it’s so much more than that. It makes you fall in love with food and shows you how to wring life out of nothing. For those of us lucky enough not to have lived through wartime, Fisher’s writing may still conjure up images of our student days, and, while many of the recipes are dated, the writing is timeless. You’ll love it.
