Serve It Forth Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews 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.
