    Julia Child is a native of California and a Smith College graduate. Shortly after the appearance of the bookMastering the Art of French Cooking in 1961, Julia Child began appearing in the public television seriesThe French Chef, which aired for many years all over the United States, and in 1978 the programJulia Child & Company was launched, followed the next year by Julia Child & More Company. In 1968 recipes from her early programs, many of which were drawn from this book, were published inThe French Chef Cookbook. In 1975 From Julia Child’s Kitchen was published, followed in 1978 and 1979 byJulia Child & Company and Julia Child & More Company, based on those programs. Also based on television series were the two books—Cooking with Master Chefs andIn Julia’s Kitchen with Master Chefs—she wrote in the mid-1990s, as well asJulia and Jacques Cooking at Home, with Jacques Pepin, in 1999. The Way to Cook, her magnum opus, was published in 1989, and in 2000 she gave usJulia’s Kitchen Wisdom, a distillation of her years of cooking experience.

    • One of the Best

      I bought this item for a friend. I had a copy myself. What can I say? It's one of the all time best cookbooks. Julia's approach is very good for novices and pros alike. Instructions are detailed and clear. Hard to make a mistake.
