M. F. K. Fisher

M. F. K. Fisher
b. 7-3-1908; Albion, MI
d. 6-22-1992; California

Mary Frances Kennedy Fisher's writing dealt primarily with food, considering it from many aspects: preparation, natural history, culture, and philosophy.

M. F. K. Fisher quotes ~
• “People ask me: "Why do you write about food, and eating, and drinking? Why don't you write about the struggle for power and security, and about love, the way the others do?" . . . The easiest answer is to say that, like most other humans, I am hungry.”
• “Sharing food with another human being is an intimate act that should not be indulged in lightly.”
• “Wine and cheese are ageless companions, like aspirin and aches, or June and moon, or good people and noble ventures.”

Sylvester Graham
b. 7-5-1794; Suffield, CT
d. 9-11-1851; Northampton, MA

The Reverend Sylvester Graham, a Presbyterian minister and dietary reformer emphasizing vegetarianism, is best remembered for the Graham cracker, a flat, crisp cookie made with Graham flour and sweetened with honey (technically crackers are salty).

Graham foresaw that the industrialization of grinding wheat, while it would produce a flour with longer shelf life, would also remove nutrition and introduce chemicals into the diet, creating a less healthy white bread.

To recreate Graham flour blend about 2/3 cup white flour, slightly less than 1/3 cup wheat bran and 1.5 teaspoons wheat germ.
