'What's a shallot?' she asked her husband Paul, as they waited for their sole meuniere during their very first lunch in France, which she was to describe later as 'the most exciting meal of my life'.

What a marvel!

It would be very interesting for people to know how much her husband had to do with her success! I am a Julia-ite and this is a fine fine read....

Love this book!

Funny, charming, a love story not only between Julia and Paul, but a love affair with France.

Dear Julia...

I love this woman. She is charming and funny and vastly practical. In sort, I wish she had been my friend.
In fact, this book is much like getting wonderful long letters from a good friend. I kept wanting to write her back to say what a treat it was to hear from her...but alas, she is gone. She lives on in these words, in this book. Read it. You will fall in love with her as I did.
