As I opened the box it felt like Christmas. Here it was a brand new copy of Julia Childs masterpiece. For many years I never realized how much she had truly changed how the world viewed chooking and cooking shows. She truly was a pioneer. I look forward to the adventure that awaits me between this lovely hardcovered book. Who wouldn't, were talking Julia the queen of the kitchen. As I flip through the pages I realize I can take myself to France. I may night be able to truly travel there but close enough. If I can recreate the experince I sure will do so to the best of my ability. So off I go to flip the pages and find my newest cooking adventure journey to travel.
