Indispensable. Sits quite happily on my kitchen countertop, and is referenced often. If you have any interesting in cooking, MTAOFC is a must. Not even so much for the recipes- of course, for the recipes- they are delicious and Julia is exact and did I mention they are delicious?- BUT each recipe is an event. The beautiful thing about this cookbook (and it's recipes) is that, like good food, it does not appear in a vacuum- there is the lore of Julia, the lore of the recipes, Julia's colorful instructions, the common-sense solutions she offers (that, in the early 21st century, are in some cases woefully outdated and in others the perfect tip). It is readily apparent that Julia believes cooking should be an experience to share, and I believe her cookbook is one that should be shared as well.
