Friese, Kurt M.
Pen Name: Kurt Michael Friese
Comments from the author about writing: I write about food. I have a strong interest in sustainable agriculture and cuisine because food defines who we are. A hero of mine, MFK Fisher, said it best. "There is a communion of more than our bodies when bread is broken and wine is drunk. That is what I say when people ask me, 'Why do you write of food, and not of love and war?'"
