M. F. K. Fisher in Japan: A Meditation by Leo Racicot

Leo Racicot, a friend of M. F. K. Fisher’s, wrote an essay about M. F.’s sojourn in Japan, a part of her life that rarely gets any ink.

This total immersion in the Japanese way of eating and of living changed M.F.K. Fisher.

Admirers of her work boldly underscore her sojourns in France, particularly in Aix-en-Provence, Dijon and French Switzerland. And those places without question transformed her post-Victorian palate into a richly aware, diverse and continental one. But Japan, too, altered her profoundly, giving her new eyes and a new stomach, opening her mind and her sensibilities to another way of seeing, of tasting, of experiencing what, how and why people eat.
