Monday Books | Happy Birthday Julia!


Some personalities are ageless.

Julia Child, 1989

It’s not everyday that the celebration of your 100th birthday rolls around. If Julia Child were still with us, she would have been 100 on Wednesday (8/15). It hardly seems possible.

Julia seemed ageless. She made her mark on the culinary world in so many ways that it’s impossible to recount. Her groundbreaking television program, The French Chef was ahead of the Food Network by 30 years! Talk about trendsetting. The woman was more than just a little ahead of her time. She was decades ahead.

One could go on and on about Julia’s contribution to her craft and passion. But honestly, you couldn’t do the subject justice. I think we’ll just let our Monday Books speak for themselves.

Happy 100 Julia!

BUY IT! - The Family Meal: Home Cooking with Ferran Adria

I’m not sure what is so special about October 4th. But, something is. No less than sixteen cookbooks are slated for release that day. Coincidence? Maybe.

One of the highlights this week is the release of, The Family Meal: Home Cooking with Ferran Adria, This is a truly amazing cookbook. It has recipes and food photography that leaves most other books in the dust. This is a must have for any serious or semi-serious home chef. A great look at what the staff gets to eat at one of the worlds best restaurants, elBulli.

Also, this week marks a milestone of sorts for the eBook market. Julia Child’s culinary epic, Mastering the Art of French Cooking, Volume 1, is out for the Kindle. Since Julia was a pioneer in bringing cooking to TV, it’s only fitting that her 1961 classic helps usher in the digital age of cookbooks.

Enough talk, Let’s get to it.
