We all love Julia's comforting voice, teaching and encouragement for the art and joy of baking. I lived around the corner from Julia Child in Cambridge, MA. I found this out one day at a local grocery store reaching for a beautiful tomato at the top of the pyramid of tomatoes. My hand was on one side and Julia's was on the other side as my eye followed the arm up to the tomato. It was then I realized the tall person next to me was Julia. We both laughed as I gave her the tomato.

This book is where I first learned to try things I was originally too timid for. The recipes were clear and excellently presented - it made everything seem achievable. It also introduced me to names that became my guideposts in the baking world. I'm so grateful for this book - I used to pull it off my mom's shelf when I first started baking, and I pull it off my own today.
