|Plot Summary of Serve It Forth|
|"This book, Fisher's first, appeared in 1937. It features her light touch, with essays about various aspects of the dining experience -- from dining alone and "vegetable snobbery" to preparation of escargots -- and several wonderful set-pieces. Yes, there are some recipes, and also a casual structure that describes dining practices through the centuries, from ancient Greece and Rome to the present. One story, "The Standing and the Waiting," is simply the account of a dinner out for two, but it has everything a great short story should have: humor, suspense, and a shock ending."
David Loftus, Resident Scholar
