  1. gee, I wish I was in New York. I got this book for Mother's Day [?] or something and enjoyed it very much. I found her discussions of the process of writing a cookbook awesome.

    Sad to think of no more Julia. Don't think I really appreciated her and what she did until I read the book.

    1. I hope you were able to attend the reading. I read the book a few months ago and thoroughly enjoyed it. Her voice, so much a part of what makes her cookbooks so good, is vivid throughout. I had not known that Mastering took her 8 years to write. But it does help to explain why the recipes in it are so unbelievably good.
