  15. 15. Craig Claibourne New York Times Book Review of MtAoFC • "Probably the most comprehensive, laudable, and monumental work on [French cuisine] was published this week, and it will probably remain as the definitive work for nonprofessionals . . . [It is] a masterpiece."
  16. 16. Interview with Julia Child Time Magazine 1966 • For from the moment that Julia appears on the screen, sleeves rolled above the elbow and blue denim apron about her waist, until her closing "Bon appetit," there is no telling what calamity may confront her. • Even her failures and faux pas are classic. When a potato pancake falls on the worktable, she scoops it back into the pan, bats her big blue eyes at the cameras, and advises: "Remember, you're all alone in the kitchen and no one can see you." • Again, when the apple charlotte that she was making began sagging, she patted it back together, reassured her viewers: "It will taste even better this way." Her cardinal rule for hostesses: "Never apologize.“ • Julia also insists that women should know their steers. In her zeal to demonstrate the various cuts, she has no hesitation in using her own body along with the meat chart to get the point across. • Julia is just right for the times…he postwar travel boom brought millions of U.S. tourists back from Europe with their tastes broadened and sharpened by what they had eaten there. At the same time, a host of kitchen aids, from dishwashers, pressure cookers, blenders and deepfreeze units to the latest nonstick Teflon pans, were taking the drudgery out of cooking.
  17. 17. David Kamp New York Times Review Julie and Julia • “When she's focused on the cooking itself, Powell shows signs of being one of our better, loopier culinary thinkers.” • "Julie and Julia" still has too much blog in its DNA: it has a messy, whatever's-on-my-mind incontinence to it, taking us places we'd rather not go…Being subjected over and over again to images of your piled-up dirty dishes and backed-up plumbing (bodily and otherwise) only makes me want to put down your book. Stop it!” • “Julie Powell willed herself out of that secretarial pool by thinking big; I wish that, for her print publishing debut, she hadn't thought so small.”
  18. 18. Sarah Chalfant Review from Publisher’s Weekly Julie and Julia • “Some passages in the book are taken verbatim from the blog, but Powell expands on her experience and gives generous background about her personal life: her doting husband, wacky friends, evil co-workers.” • “Her writing is feisty and unrestrained.” • “Occasionally the diarist instinct overwhelms the generally tight structure and Powell goes on unrelated tangents, but her voice is endearing enough that readers will quickly forgive such lapses.”
  19. 19. Julie Powell Interview with Newsweek • Unlike more modern pop-culture icons, whose every move is in the tabloids, Child remains something of a mystery figure. "She reflects what we want to find in her," says Powell. • "Julia didn't create armies of drones, mindlessly equating her name with taste and muttering 'It's a good thing' under their minty breath. Instead she created feisty, buttery, adventurous cooks, always diving into the next possible disaster, because goddammit, if Julia did it, so could we."
