Cassoulet was one of M.F.K. Fisher's favorite dishes to prepare and enjoy with family and friends. Enjoy a delicious meal, share memories of M.F.K. Fisher and her life in Last House, and exchange ideas regarding the use of and future of Last House.

Audubon Canyon Ranch (ACR) is restoring the legendary author's home to capture the spirit and the flavor of her life and as an exclusive destination honoring her love of food, wine, literature and nature. Complementing the renovation are paintings, furnishings and memorabilia donated back to the house by family and friends. “Reaching out to family and friends who have lovingly shared items, memories, and stories has been rich,” said Kennedy Golden, Fisher’s daughter and an advisor on the project. Among the donated items, Fisher’s Coronomatic typewriter sits quietly in one corner, rough draft secured on the platen for curious observers.

Proceeds from the events will fund the renovation effort. Individual donations to support Last House may be made online at
