I am a huge Julia Child fan! If you love food, you simply must own this informative and entertaining book, written for all “servantless American cooks.” I’ve made several recipes from the book (some are posted here) and find it full of so many tips for ingredients and techniques.
I love the master recipes with many flavor variations, which helps you feel more creative in the kitchen. Whenever I find French recipes on Pinterest or elsewhere, I always compare them to what Julia’s take on them was.
It’s a tasty way to learn French food vocabulary, too, because all recipes include the equivalent French recipe names and some French cooking terms. Click product photo for more information.
