People Who Love to Eat Are Always the Best People

“If you’re afraid of butter, use cream.” So decrees Julia Child, the legendary culinary authority and cookbook author who taught America how to cook–and how to eat. This delightful volume of quotations compiles some of Julia’s most memorable lines on eating–“The only time to eat diet food is while you’re waiting for the steak to cook”–on drinking, on life–“I think every woman should have a blowtorch”–on love, travel, France, and much more. Perfect for Julia fans, home cooks, and anyone who simply loves to eat and drink.
