Serve It Forth

If I could back in time, I would live like MFK Fisher.  Or, better yet, in my time machine, visit each of the gastronomic ages that she charmingly writes about in “Serve It Forth”, her first book from 1937.  The pleasures of eating, from grand Roman feasts to the evolution of the modern brasserie, are interwoven with her own personal history and experiences.  Hoping to embrace her spirit, I try out her “secret eating” – tangerines on the radiator.  A tangerine is peeled and its segments are left to dry out on the radiator.  The skin of the segments dry out to create a crisp, delicate shell.  The fruit stays juicy and splooshes with every bite.  I love it, the next best thing to the time machine.
