People Who Love to Eat Are Always the Best People: And Other Wisdom

We rated this book:


“The only time to eat diet food is while you’re waiting for the steak to cook.” Wise words from Julia Child, the name eponymous with transforming home cooking into culinary dedications of love and perfection. Witty, humorous, and sometimes intentionally controversial in her kitchen opinions, Child has long been recognized as a quotable legend, and this beautifully bound hardback booklet collects some of those priceless gems for our enjoyment. Collected by the Julia Child Foundation, these are her authentic statements, and Child’s abundant personality shines through. With scattered artwork throughout, the book collects such firm statements as, “A cookbook is only as good as its poorest recipe,” and frameable lines like “The pleasures of the table are infinite.” This book makes the perfect gift for the cuisinier in your life, professional or amateur – paired with a nice dish, a Julia Child cookbook, or a basket of ingredients, your favorite chef can’t help but agree with the sentiment in the title. It would also be an appropriate gift for a graphic artist or designer creating lettered signs, cards, and wall-hangings. It may help us, in Julia’s own words, to “Find something you’re passionate about and keep tremendously interested in it.”
