How to Cook a Wolf, 1942, 1944, 1988



How to Cook a Wolf: One of the most sought after of all American cookbooks! How to Cook a Wolf, by M.F.K. Fisher. Wonderful “plain cooking” recipes, plus clever, witty, and warm conversational text that made people feel better about cooking while under World War II rationing. First published by Duell, Sloan & Pierce in 1942, then revised by the author in 1954, when war shortages were no longer pressing. This copy is from the 1988 North Point Press reprinting, in paperback. 261 pp. Cover is mint, as are the pages, with the exception of some uniform tanning at the edges. This copy was published during World War II, under civilian printing conditions, so the paper was of relatively poor quality. I don’t think this book was ever read. Absolutely gift quality! We don’t normally stock reprints or paperbacks, for that matter. But this is a very special cookbook.
