I didn't get this book for myself, so understand that this review is second-hand. I got it for my wife as part of a Julia Child theme birthday gift (she got the pearls, too) after I had taken her to see the movie "Julie & Julia". She couldn't put it down and was noting pages and recipes while wearing her new pearls. It is a very unique cookbook as you would expect from Julia Child. Any cook (or kook) would love it.
If you have been ordering the old French Chef TV series to watch, purchasing a lot of eggs, butter and cream, this is the book you want. I am enjoying it a lot. It isn't just recipes from the TV series, it has a lot of background on Julia and how the series was produced. Not all of this was in Julie and Julia, the new movie. I tend to read cookbooks as novels and collect vintage cookbooks so I see history in the making in them. Since we have been watching The French Chef series we weren't writing out the recipes, except now we see they aren't all in this book. That was disappointing. But it does say which show # a recipe is from. We have been cooking from the book and find it a delight. Being a pocketbook paperback with a tight binding doesn't make it easy to lay out and read the recipe. But all in all, it is a delight to cook and eat these lovely recipes and read the stories that come along with it. A little more fun is that the recipe titles are in English and French so we are picking up a little French, and think we are sounding quite cosmopolitan to boot. Voila!
