9780717166862: A Taste of Love

In this highly entertaining memoir, discover the sights, sounds, and tastes of Theodora FitzGibbon - food writer, adventurer, and thoroughly modern woman. Theodora's bohemian appetite for love, pleasure, good food, and adventure took her all over the globe until she died, in Dublin, in 1991. Her two-volume autobiography reveals a life fully lived: the names she used before settling on `Theodora;' the cookery lessons given to her by the former Queen Natalie of Serbia; the 1920s childhood spent on food-chomping travels with her rakish naval officer father in Europe, the Middle East, and India.

About the Author:

Theodora FitzGibbon was born in London and educated in England and France. She was the author of more than thirty books, most of which were about food, and included her encyclopaedic The Food of the Western World, which took her fifteen years to complete and covered some thirty-four countries and thirty-two languages. Probably her best-known book is A Taste of Ireland. Her Saturday column in The Irish Times, which appeared for twenty years and became as legendary as everything else about her, was witty, pithy, filled with extra-curricular food knowledge and as avidly talked about as it was read. She had an unfailing instinct for putting both recipes and sentences together, and knew more than anyone how to be entertaining while doing both. She published two volumes of autobiography, With Love in 1982 and Love Lies a Loss in 1985, which are combined in the new publication A Taste of Love. She died in 1991.

The Irish Times food writer Theodora FitzGibbon s bohemian appetite for love, pleasure, good food and adventure took her all over the globe until she died, in Dublin, in 1991.

Paris in the 1930s was home to Theodora s struggles to maintain an independent life as a young actress, where she began an affair with photographer Peter Rose Pulham and kept company with Balthus, Cocteau, Dali and Picasso. She escaped wartime Paris to live in London during the Blitz and was friendly with Dylan and Caitlin Thomas, Augustus John, Francis Bacon, Shane Leslie and Soviet spy Donald Maclean. She adopted Gwladys the penguin and Mouche the poodle. She married Irish-American writer Constantine FitzGibbon in 1944 and divorced him fifteen famously stormy years later.In 1960 she married George Morrison, the film maker and archivist, and they lived together in Dalkey in the house with the sea at the bottom of the garden .
