Recommended for: carnivores/ foodies
Read in January, 2007

I listened to this book on CD. I enjoyed listening to the story while folding laundry and riding the MAX. Now I feel a bit left out as apparently there are pictures in the book?

I found it inspirational and entertaining. Her culinary and cultural enlightenment made me feel perhaps going to work and watching tv every day is not enough.

I did feel inspired to try some French food, so I went to Le Pigeon.

I had "foie gras cream soup" which I later titled "cat food 'n' cream". I also had sweetbreads and beef cheek bourguinone. I am sure I spelled that wrong, but keep in mind I had the audio version of the book. I learned I had confused the two: I am not a fan of French food, I am a fan of Julia Child!

Her technical descriptions of setting up her tv show were fascinating.

This is one of the best books I've experienced (can you say read if it's audio?) this year.
