Recently I receive a copy of Julia Child's cookbook Mastering the Art of French Cooking from my sister-in-law, Susannah. As many of you know, this is the cookbook that transformed the way Americans cooked, and for many people, this is the book that taught them how to cook.
Julia Child's cookbook was a well-intended and thoughtful gift from my sister-in-law, but as it turns out, I already have a copy. Darn it! So I instead of returning it, I decided that it would make for a great addition to the book collection one of my readers.
I also have some exciting personal news. Remember my lunch at Bottega with Sherry Page? I was lamenting about how I'd love to attend one of the Culinary Getaways in Provence or truffle week, but unfortunately these trips get booked up months in advance, and with my husband's unpredictable schedule, we'd be unable to commit. As it happens, Sherry read my post and contacted me a few days ago about a last minute cancellation for one spot. With the blessing of my husband, I immediately snatched it up. So in a few weeks, I'll be bringing back photos of a place that I've heard magical descriptions. Viva Provence! And even more spectacular, I'll be tasting and learning about fresh truffles, which is an incredible experience in itself. I don't know what to expect because I have very limited experience with truffles, but I'm sure it will be eye-opening.
I will also be in Paris for a few days, if any of you have travel advice, please leave a comment or e-mail me, I would very much appreciate it! The last time was in France was December 2001 when the euro was $0.88, unbelievable, right? I don't know what the the euro is trading at now, but I bet it's expensive. Again, any advice would be appreciated!
Last chance: Don't forget you have two more days to enter to win the book Best of New York in 10 Seconds.
