C.M. Hébert is the perfect ac-companiment to M.F.K. Fisher's delightful recollection of the highs and lows of world travel and French food. Hébert reads these warm, yet sophisticated, descriptions of feasts, forays, and friends with a wistfulness and longing one can imagine Fisher herself feeling as she remembers delights long past. Hébert's perfect French adds a nice touch to Fisher's exquisitely crafted essays, and her cadence captures Fisher's humor and sense of irony at every bend. Whether she's describing the best waiter she ever met, the toil of a difficult sea voyage, or the joys of her California childhood, Hébert delivers a beautiful performance, tempting all of the senses with Fisher's love of life.
