Post film discussion with Michelle Anna Jordan, Director Greg Bezat and Producer Gary Meyer

The Art of Eating: The Life of M.F.K. Fisher is a feature documentary about the dramatic life and lasting impact of the California food writer M.F.K. Fisher, who elevated cooking from a domestic chore to a critical study of what it means to be human. Described by W.H. Auden as “the best prose writer in America,” the intrepid but underrecognized Fisher helped introduce continental sensibilities to America’s burgeoning culinary world. Perhaps more importantly, she forever transformed the 1950s-era background figure of a woman in the kitchen into a living, breathing subject — with dazzling ideas, passionate emotions, and insatiable appetites.
