From Library Journal:
Child’s TV career began in 1963 with The French Chef on WGBH-TV in New England. The show proved very popular, and this book contains all the recipes featured in the 119 installments. The text is buttressed with photographs demonstrating cooking, cutting, and serving techniques.
Julia Child - From Julia Child's kitchen
"Be a fearless cook! Try out new ideas and new recipes, but always buy the freshest and finest ingredients, whatever they may be. Furnish your kitchen with the most solid and workmanlike equipment you can find. Keep your knives ever sharp and--toujours bon appetit!" Introduction - Julia Child
Julia Child - Louisette Bertholle - Simone Beck - Mastering the Art of French Cooking
Mastering the Art of French Cooking is for both seasoned cooks and beginners who love good food and long to reproduce at home the savory delights of the classic cuisine, from the historic Gallic masterpieces to the seemingly artless perfection of a dish of spring-green peas. This beautiful book, with more than 100 instructive illustrations, is revolutionary in its approach because: • it leads the cook infallibly from the buying and handling of raw ingredients, through each essential step of a recipe, to the final creation of a delicate confection; • it breaks down the classic cuisine into a logical sequence of themes and variations rather than presenting an endless and diffuse catalogue of recipes; the focus is on key recipes that form the backbone of French cookery and lend themselves to an infinite number of elaborations—bound to increase anyone’s culinary repertoire; • it adapts classical techniques, wherever possible, to modern American conveniences; • it shows Americans how to buy products, from any supermarket in the United States, that reproduce the exact taste and texture of the French ingredients, for example, equivalent meat cuts, the right beans for a cassoulet, or the appropriate fish and seafood for a bouillabaisse; • it offers suggestions for just the right accompaniment to each dish, including proper wines. Since there has never been a book as instructive and as workable as Mastering the Art of French Cooking, the techniques learned here can be applied to recipes in all other French cookbooks, making them infinitely more usable. In compiling the secrets of famous cordons bleus, the authors have produced a magnificent volume that is sure to find the place of honor in every kitchen in America. Bon appétit!
Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall - Every Day
Putting food on the table for the family quickly and economically doesn't mean you have to compromise on quality. This book shows how Hugh's approach to food can be adapted to suit any growing, working family, or busy young singles and couples for that matter. Breakfast, baking, lunchboxes, quick suppers, healthy snacks, eating on the move and weekend cooking for the week ahead - all these, and more, will be covered in River Cottage Every Day. As Hugh says: 'I make no prior assumptions about where you shop, what you may or may not know about growing vegetables or keeping livestock, whether you can tell the difference between a swede and turnip, or know what to do with a belly of pork and a breast of lamb. Instead, I'll show you easy and confidence-inspiring ways with cuts of meat, types of fish and other ingredients you may not have tried before. And I'll offer you new approaches that I hope will breath new life to familiar staples, like rice, spuds, beans, and your daily bread. Above all, I intend to tempt you irresistibly towards a better life with food, with a whole raft of recipes that I think you will love. I hope some of them will become your absolute favourites, and the favourites of your dear friends and beloved family. I hope that the dishes you like best will infiltrate and influence your cooking, giving you increased confidence and fresh ideas. In short, I hope that before long, cooking simple and delicious food from the best seasonal ingredients becomes second nature and first priority for you, not just once in a while, but every day.'
Julia Child - Cooking With Master Chefs
In this companion volume to the PBS series "Cooking with Master Chefs," Julia Child introduces sixteen of America's talented chefs from different parts of the country and interprets their recipes for the home cook. With the help of more than eighty color photographs we see the chefs at work in home kitchens and we learn the individual techniques that make their signature dishes so delicious -- and so workable. For example: -- from Charles Palmer (Aureole, New York), how to sear peppery venison steaks -- from Mary Sue Milliken and Susan Feniger (Border Grill, Santa Monica), how to make a spicy vegetarian feast -- from Emeril Lagasse (Emeril's, New Orleans), how to produce an authentic crab boil and a shrimp etoufee -- from Andre Soltner (Lutece, New York), how to cook traditional family dishes from Alsace -- from Jeremiah Tower (Stars, San Francisco), three innovative ways with chicken -- from Lidia Bastianich (Felidia, New York), the secrets of pasta and risotto -- from Patrick Clark (Hay-Adams Hotel, Washington, D.C.), new ways with fish -- fresh salmon as a roulade, grouper crusty with horseradish -- from Michel Richard (Citrus, Los Angeles), how to work with chocolate -- a mousse-filled dome, deep-fried chocolate truffles -- from Amy Ferguson-Ota (The Ritz-Carlton, Hawaii), the special flavors of island produce -- breadfruit, ti leaves, green papayas, wok-seared ono -- from Robert Del Grande (Cafe Annie, Houston), how to cook with chiles -- from Nancy Silverton (Campanile, Los Angeles), the trick of a grape starter that works magic on her crusty loaves -- from Jan Birnbaum (Campton Place, San Francisco), how to home-smoke salmon and roast sassafras-encrusted lamb -- from Jean-Louis Palladin (Jean-Louis at The Watergate, Washington, D.C.), the technique of roasting duck breasts in a fireplace -- from Alice Waters (Chez Panisse, Berkeley), celebrating the winter harvest in vegetable dishes and salads -- from Jacques Pepin (chef-at-large), making puff pastry and a freestanding souffle Julia Child writes in her Introduction that she's never known a serious cook or chef who didn't say: "Every day I learn something new!" "That point of view," she says, "turns home cooking and the pleasures of the table into a wonderful adventure.' So, appetit, and enjoy the adventures that this wonderful book provides.
Julia Child - Julia's Kitchen Wisdom
From Publishers Weekly This slender book from the doyenne of gourmet cooking is a boon for those who need a refresher course in, or a handy source for, basics. These notes come from Child's own kitchen notebook, years in the making. Generally, each recipe is included in "master" form with numerous variations; for example, a section on potatoes explains the ins and outs of Mashed Potatoes, as well as provides a recipe for Garlic Mashed Potatoes. Child's voice is always welcome, and never more so than when she is providing no-muss-no-fuss advice like this. A quick section on dried beans covers soaking as well as cooking in a pressure cooker or Crock-Pot, and some more esoteric treats, such as homemade bread and souffl?s, have their place here. Helpful tips proliferate throughout: Sea Scallops Saut?ed with Garlic and Herbs are followed by a paragraph on scallops that exude too much juice, and a section on tarts explains how to prebake a shell. Even Hamburgers (plain and flavored) are covered here.
Laura Shapiro - Julia Child - a Life
With a swooping voice, an irrepressible sense of humor, and a passion for good food, Julia Child ushered in the nation’s culinary renaissance. In Julia Child, award-winning food writer Laura Shapiro tells the story of Child’s unlikely career path, from California party girl to coolheaded chief clerk in a World War II spy station to bewildered amateur cook and finally to the Cordon Bleu in Paris, the school that inspired her calling. A food lover who was quintessentially American, right down to her little-known recipe for classic tuna fish casserole, Shapiro’s Julia Child personifies her own most famous lesson: that learning how to cook means learning how to live.
Julia Child - The Way to Cook
From Publishers Weekly: Child's new magnum opus reminds us that she has almost single-handedly inspired the superb quality of modern larders. Without her unflagging commitment to good eating, it is doubtful that fresh duck foie gras would have been available for the saute included here. However, this wonderful book is hardly a paean to elitist fare, maintaining Child's unique perspective while reflecting attitudes about food that "have changed through these last years" and sharing much new knowledge. Recipes, divided into a master formula and variations, are grouped by technique; French classics stand fin-to-wing with American offerings (roast turkey). Dietary concerns are addressed with low-fat soups and a cottage cheese-enriched chicken liver mousse. Nevertheless, the author of Mastering the Art of French Cooking, who would "rather swoon over . . . one small serving of chocolate mousse . . . than indulge one . . . fat-free gelatin puddings," has not gone light. Six hundred handsome photographs underscore Child's technical genius. 110,000 first printing; BOMC main selection.
Julia Child - In Julia's Kitchen with Master Chefs

Always inventive, always resourceful, Julia draws freely on the cuisines of many countries for new inspiration. As can be seen from the color photographs throughout, everything you serve will be as appetizing for your company to behold as it will be to taste and to savor.
Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall - Veg Every Day
'Call me power-crazed, but I'm trying to change your life here. The object of the exercise is to persuade you to eat more vegetables. Many more vegatables. And I hope to do so not by shouting from a soapbox, but through sheer temptation...'

Again and again they demonstrate that cooking is endlessly fascinating and challenging and, while ultimately personal, it is a joy to be shared.

Julia Child - Életem Franciaországban
Julia Child 1948-ban érkezett diplomata férje oldalán először Franciaországba. Egy szót sem tudott franciául, soha addig nem kóstolt egyetlen francia ételt sem, ráadásul főzni sem tudott. Ám ahogy kezdett elmélyedni a nyelv tanulásában, ahogy kezdte megismerni a franciák életmódját és konyháját, szenvedélyes érdeklődés gyúlt benne az ország és lakói iránt, a főzés pedig életre szóló hivatásává vált. Ebben a könyvben Julia Child elsősorban franciaországi kalandjait meséli el: feltárul előttünk a háború utáni Párizs a híres Cordon Bleu főzőiskolával, az eldugott kisvendéglőkkel és a külföldiek pénztárcájához mért elegáns éttermekkel. Juliával együtt kilátogatunk Marseille nyüzsgő halpiacaira, végigjárjuk Provence kisvárosait, megcsodáljuk a kiépülőben levő francia Riviérát, megismerünk híres séfeket és a helyi konyha minden csínját-bínját értő egyszerű parasztasszonyokat. A szeretett férjével Európa más országaiba tett közös utazásaikról szóló tudósításokból kiderül az is, milyennek látta kontinensünket akkoriban egy érdeklődő amerikai. Az emlékirat egyben beszámoló arról, milyen hányattatások után sikerült kiadni a francia szerzőtársnőivel közösen írt, ma már alapműnek számító, kétkötetes angol nyelvű nagy francia szakácskönyvet, és hogyan lett Juliából Amerika első televíziós sztárszakácsa.
Mautner Zsófia - Gyere velem főzni
Különleges hozzávalókból izgalmasat főzni? Erre sokan képesek. De ahhoz Mautner Zsófia kell, hogy egészen hétköznapi hozzávalók lényegüljenek át mesterkonyhai fogásokká. Viszlát, homár – szervusz, karalábé! A Chili&Vanília blog szerzője könyvében vadonatúj receptek sokaságával hívja ízes és sikeres felfedezésekre olvasóit. Nyugodtan bízzák rá magukat! Ebből az új könyvből főzni olyan, mintha ott állna mellettünk egy segítőkész barátnő. Nem véletlen, hogy blogjának eddig több 3 millió látogatója volt: ő bizony tud valamit, amit senki más nem. Családi ebédek, Irány a piac!, Utazás – ez a három fejezet tagolja ezt a változatos receptgyűjteményt. Az első fejezet az emlékeké és a nosztalgiáé, olyan receptekkel, amelyeket a szerző gyermekkora ihletett, és amelyek a mai generációnak is izgalmasak. Töltött libanyak, vörösboros marhapofa, ropogós slambuc, egérke és Ferdinánd – mind csupa régi, újra felfedezésre váró étel. A második fejezet főszereplői a hazai piacok zöldségei és gyümölcsei. Mautner Zsófia nagyszerű, izgalmas receptekkel újítja meg a sokszor elfeledett vagy méltatlanul unalmasnak gondolt alapanyagokat – a karalábéból tüzes kókusztejes-gyömbéres krémlevest, a a vajbabból üde bodzás vajbabfőzeléket, a birsalmából pedig isteni, bő fél óra alatt elkészülő karamellizált hagymás-csirkés ragut készít. A harmadik részben utazásra hív a szerző, többek között török, arab, kínai, koreai, vietnami és olasz vidékekre. Hogy milyen egyszerű összedobni a tökéletes török bárányhúsos lepényt (lahmacun), hogy mennyire kényeztető a chilivel és vaníliával sült csirke, és hogy hogyan készül az igazi pho leves (vietnami marhahúsleves rizstésztával) vagy a török csicseriborsós rizs (nohutlu pilav), amelyhez szaftos báránycsülök dukál? Mindez kiderül a könyvből, melyben a precíz, többszörösen tesztelt recepteket olvasmányos élménybeszámolók foglalják hangulatos keretbe. Mautner Zsófia Magyarország egyik legolvasottabb, több mint 3 millió látogatót számláló gasztroblogjának, a Chili&Vaníliának a szerzője. 2009-ben brüsszeli diplomataéletét cserélte fel a gasztronómiai szakértő szabadúszó státuszával. Miután hazaköltözött, megjelent az első szakácskönyve, amely óriási sikert aratott. Ezután sorra jöttek a felkérések: éttermek, főzőiskolák, rádiós és televíziós műsorok, valamint számos nyomtatott és internetes magazin dicséri munkáját. Jelenleg Budapesten él.
