 THE ART OF EATING: THE LIFE OF M.F.K. FISHER 

FILM SCREENING 3 P.M. | WINE AND FOOD RECEPTION 5 P.M.  

Featuring insightful interviews with Alice Waters, Tanya Holland, Jacques Pepin, Anne Lamott, Ruth Reichl, and other contemporary culinary and literary greats, Gregory Bezat’s 2023 documentary explores the exciting life and lasting impact of the intrepid mid-century California food writer M.F.K. Fisher, who elevated cooking from a domestic chore to a critical study of life itself. Described by W.H. Auden as “the best prose writer in America,” the underrecognized Fisher introduced continental sensibilities to California’s burgeoning culinary world, while she transformed the traditional background figure of a woman in the kitchen into a living, breathing subject with dazzling ideas, passionate emotions, and insatiable appetites. Includes Q&A with the film’s creative team and special guests immediately following the screening. VIP Wine and Food Reception Join us for an exclusive wine and food reception with the film’s creative team and special guests in honor of the film’s release.
