Julia Child Rocks!
I had to get this early edition book after reading Julia Child's "My Life in France" in which she explains how this "cookery book" came to being. This tome uses precise language yet it retains all of Julia's wit and charm. As a reference, it is very user friendly and unintimidating because Julia is there guiding every step. It is not just a cook book but a piece of culinary history.
