The Good Book

About two weeks ago, I finished reading this:

I loved it! LOVED IT! Very inspiring and sweet and lovely. I highly recommend it. As the book is really about Julia's formative foodie years in France and the result of that, her book MASTERING THE ART OF FRENCH COOKING....I had to buy it!

This arrived today:

It's beautiful! An absolute classic, even in it's appearance! Can't wait to try something from it. I was giggling earlier, the first recipe I flipped to was Duck! I've never cooked duck, but have always wanted to. This might be a sign....OH MY...that is a total lie....I cooked a full duck once for wasn't good, that's why I say I've not done duck...but maybe now.

Get Martha Stewart's new cookbook - the Baking Handbook.

It's well worth it.

You know about the Julie/Julia project, yes?

And the Julie & Julia book

Greymaulkin & Asian Mistress: I 've heard of the Julie & Julia book, I've seen it, it's been recommended to me, but I haven't done anything about it. Once I get myself into Mastering the Art of French Cooking, I'll probably find myself looking for that book again.

Asian Mistress: I have several of Martha's books and really enjoy them. Thanks for the recommendation on this one, I'll try to get a look at it the next time out.
