Box Set: Julia Child’s Mastering the Art of French Cooking

What an extraordinary gift this would make!  Julia Child’s amazing collection of French recipes, that have inspired so many to “up their game” when it comes to home cooking, is now available as a 2-volume box set.

This is Julia Child’s most influential work, and is still celebrated almost 50 years after the original published editions back in 1961 and 1970.  The recipes are presented in painstaking detail, and the process of French cooking comes alive in these volumes.

Julia’s humor and personality shine through, which encourage both novice and more experienced cooks to experience her classic dishes.  It’s as if you could picture Julia standing right beside you, giving you her instructions and sound advice in her sing-song tone of voice.

All her best dishes are included.  You can experiment with chocolate cake, French pastries, French breads, crêpes, French onion soup, unbelievable sauces, succulent roast chicken, coq au vin, and the famous beef bourguignon!  The instructions for preparing the recipes are clear, as are the reasons for the choice of ingredients, and possible alternatives to the established recipes.  There are diagrams and illustrations included when needed for more clarity.  After learning proper French cooking techniques, the culinary possibilities are endless, which makes these volumes worth their weight in gold.

Wonderful hard-cover editions of both volumes (usually volume 2 is available in paperback only) are a treat for anyone looking to add a classic to their cookbook collection.  Bon appétit!

Hint #1:  Buy from Amazon for much less than the cover price!

Hint #2:  If you are buying this as a gift, add a copy of the recent movie “Julie & Julia” for some laughs and even more inspiration!
