Julia Child’s book, Mastering the Art of French Cooking
, has been in our kitchen*
for a long time. Our friend Nanci Burton gave us (lent us?) the book in 1969. Julia has communed with Robert more than with me. He is the one that is always looking up recipes and techniques in her book.
We saw the movie Julie & Julia
this weekend. I loved it, every minute of it. I want to see it again and find all the details that flashed by on the screen too fast to comprehend. I think I’ll have to find a girlfriend to go with. Robert liked the movie very much, but he does not want to go again.
