Julia Child introduces sixteen of America's great professional cooks, the dishes they prepare in their own kitchens, and she edits their recipes for the home cook. This handsomely designed book brings acclaimed chefs out of the restaurant and into their home kitchens with characteristic dishes and singular stylishness. As Child observes, though readers may not be equipped to mimic these achievements exactly, we can indeed "gather ideas" from the recipes and apply them as we're able with the aid and inspiration of eighty photographs. The lineup is brilliant, including Jacques Pepin, Alice Waters, Patrick Clark, Andre Soltner and twelve others; covers as much geographic as gastronomic ground, from Hawaii (one recipe by chef Amy Ferguson-Ota) to New Orleans. Reading soon becomes voyeurism, possibly even better than dining, particularly when one turns to a Provencal tapenade, courtesy of Chez Panisse's proprietor, or to Michel Richard's "Chocolate Dome" with raspberry sauce. Of course, coming from Child, the book is well and warmly written. About a pasta dish by Lida Bastianich, incorporating broccoli de rape, she comments, "This lovely dish shows what can happen to tough old greens if you treat them right." 148 pages. Printed and bound by R.R. Donnelley & Sons, Willard, Ohio, USA. Insured post.
I actually ordered this on a whim while ordering other books for my son. It was a small book but filled with some great stories and wonderful recipes! I would definitely recommend it to anyone who enjoys Julia Child and wants to add to their collection of good, solid cookbooks!

The book was exactly as described, and the transacion was exactly right. It's a cookbook only if you're a serious cook, with skills, but even an everyday cook could enjoy the read.
