Books and Booze: MFK Fisher’s “A Cordiall Water”

For Liquid Gold’s Episode 99, host Mike Wolf brings back “Books and Booze,” discussing one of his favorite books of all time, M.F.K. Fisher’s A Cordiall Water. Mike has been laid up with COVID and finds much humor and history in Fisher’s discussion on home remedies of the last 500 years. Hear why jackrabbit dung was used on the Kansas prairie, why Fernet Branca helps bartenders stay on their feet, and learn about 250-year old bitters recipes that you can make at home. There’s also plenty of recommendations for Fisher’s enormous body of work. Next up for Liquid Gold: Episode 100!
