Mary Frances Kennedy Fisher (July 3, 1908 - June 22, 1992) was a prolific and well-respected writer, writing more than 20 books during her lifetime and also publishing two volumes of journals and correspondence shortly before her death in 1992. Her first book, Serve it Forth, was published in 1937. Her books deal primarily with food, considering it from many aspects: preparation, natural history, culture, and philosophy. Fisher believed that eating well was just one of the arts of life and explored the art of living as a secondary theme in her writing. Her style and pacing are noted elements of her short stories and essays. Fisher was born Mary Franny Kennedy in Albion, Michigan, on July 3, 1908. In 1911, her father, Rex Kennedy, moved the family to Whittier, California, to pursue a career in journalism. Although Whittier was primarily a Quaker community at that time, Mary Frances was brought up within the Episcopal Church.
